We understand that the relationship with your caregiver is an important component of success. This starts with experienced, professional and reliable staff that each have a complete background check and extensive training. This way, you can place your trust in caregivers that make you feel comfortable.

Patients are people. Considerate Care never forgets that. People measure success by whether they can do all the things they did before their medical episode. That is where the addition of Personal Care services is so important.

Personal Care is designed to help you with your Activities of Daily Living (You may hear professionals refer to them as “ADLs”). Why move when we can keep you in your home and turn that gap between therapy and independence into a successful transition back to the life you know?

Our Caregivers

Our caregivers consist of Registered Nurses, Certified Nursing Assistants, Home Health Aides and Companions. Our staff and caregivers are experienced, professional and reliable. Each staff member is thoroughly screened and undergoes a criminal background and reference check. We provide ongoing training to our staff.

Before the start of care our Registered Nurse will meet with you and family members to discuss, plan and coordinate care tailored to your need. We then place an aide whom we think is best fitted to meet your needs.

Skilled Nurses

Nurses provide continual oversite of the caregiver and plan of care to ensure your needs are continually being met.  


Companions can provide assistance with meal preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, errands, companionship and more.


Live-in caregivers live in the home on a full time basis, helping the client maintain normal routine as much as possible, while providing the necessary care and companionship.

Personal Care Aids (PCAs) or Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs)

In addition to the services provided by companions, PCAs and CNAs assist with "hands-on" personal care needs such as bathing, dressing, walking, and toileting. PCAs or CNAs cannot give injections or dispense medications but can remind the patient to take their medication.

Our aides hold a certificate of completion from a home health aide training program approved by VA Department of Health and work under the supervision of a Registered Nurse.
