According to the US Census Bureau, more than 8,000 people turn 65 each day. By the end of this year the senior population in America will have reached almost 49 million. By 2025, it will have grown to nearly 72 million (Source: The Department of Health and Human Services and the State Department).

~ Wealthier Population

-When compared to the costs associated with a retirement community, private pay homecare can be a very affordable option for many seniors. The average annual cost of one nursing home resident is $81,030. The average annual cost of one assisted living facility resident is $42,600. -Seniors who want to remain in their homes can often do so cost effectively with a few hours of care each week. For example, 20 hours of companionship homecare a week costs approximately $1,732 a month or an average annual cost of $20,784 (Source: MetLife Market Survey of Nursing Home & Assisted Living Costs). Thus allowing them to remain independent and home.

trusted solution for

quality service

Our GreatCare® method addresses the three most important areas of concern; Quality Caregivers, Care Solutions and Active Involvement. Caring Senior Service sets the standard for non-medical services such as personal care, meal preparation and housekeeping. Our care solutions help our clients and their loved ones remain safely at home. By using quality caregivers and maintaining active involvement we give families the control they need to live healthy, happy and at home.

QUALITY CAREGIVERS We know that great service can only be delivered by qualified, experienced staff. At Caring, we make sure our Caregivers have the right personality and skill level to ensure our clients receive quality service.

CARE SOLUTIONS Each situation is different and unique and there is no one solution that works for everyone. Our method combines services and safety care products to make sure our clients can remain safely at home.

ACTIVE INVOLVEMENT We believe that to provide quality service we must stay involved with the client, family and other professional care providers. There are often changes that need to be made to the service plan and our clients have special needs that we want to be sure everyone is aware of.
