Setting Up Services

How do I make changes to my schedule?

This process is very easy. You can call the Homecare West office anytime, we are available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day to confirm your care schedule, or make schedule adjustments.

Our In-Home Care Scheduling Options

Hourly Care

Many elderly individuals only require minimal assistance when it comes to their everyday tasks. Chores like light housekeeping and cooking meals can easily soak energy from some seniors. We play a key role in helping preserve that energy so you can use it on your choice hobbies and social activities. With a flexible and customizable plan, we can be there when you need us the most.

Live-In Care

Live-In Care is the perfect service for those in need of around the clock care and need help with most day-to-day tasks. Our caregivers need to have their own bedroom & bath to optimize privacy for our clients. We believe in giving our clients the space they need to maintain maximum independence while ensuring support and safety are readily at hand.

Overnight Care

Many seniors struggle with different kinds of pain which can make nights uncomfortable and can some times feel impossible. We want to be there for you during this time of need. Sleep loss and fatigue plays a vital role when it comes to your motor skills and cognitive abilities.  The long-term effects of sleep loss can be devastating. If you are a victim of sleep loss due to pain, stress or any other reason overnight care or even a short night time check in could be the answer to your night time problems. 

Invoicing

To keep things easy, you are billed once per month. We can send your invoice by mail or email to your accountant, daughter or son, and send a copy to you, too.
