Caregiver seeing how her client is doing

Are you looking for caregiver service?

Seniors who have ongoing health concerns and limitations often prefer to remain in their own home. It can be challenging for aging parents to care for themselves while living alone. Are you looking for in-home care services for the family members in the comfort of their own home?

Self-Help for the Elderly helps make this possible. With a dedicated team of client relations specialists, registered nurses, and caregivers, we offer seniors a variety of affordable, non-medical, and safe in-home care services.

Caregiver

All Self-Help for the Elderly’s caregivers have attended and completed a professional training program provided by a certified registered nurse. The curriculum is tailored to handle all kinds of situations, provide companionship, and help maintain a safe environment for the individuals.

Our caregivers are fluent in Chinese dialects including Cantonese, Mandarin, Taishanese and Taiwanese. They provide great companionship for the seniors as they are able to visit them as often as needed.

Unlike Home Health Care Services, the caregivers can assist individuals with household chores, personal care, light housekeeping of homes, preparing nutritious meals, transportation, and everyday responsibilities. Caregiver services may include:
