In-Home Care knows how worrisome the responsibility of caring for an aging family member can be. As staff members we have had the occasion to seek help and caring for an aging family loved one, but didn’t know where to turn to provide the quality of care, and life, they deserved. Driven by a need to find care that was more reliable and compassionate, we founded In-Home Care to provide superior home care for others.
Our founding principles include the best practices in assisting living, caregiving, and companion care. As children and grandchildren of seniors with changing needs, we understand how it feels to try to assist those we love in a dignified, respectful manner… and, how so very important it is to our family members that they remain in their own homes.
No matter what your home care need; each day, for yourself, or for an aging loved one, look to In-Home Care for:
- Caregivers who are willing to give more to their work; who are committed to high standards of integrity, quality and reliability.
- Services that make a senior’s life easier – empowering independence, giving around-the-clock care and the support the senior needs at home.
- The care we give our clients at every stage of aging supports them to get the most out of life. In-Home Care goes above and beyond to make their lives more joyful, comfortable, safe and secure, and adds peace of mind.

A Message from Founder
Thank you for visiting our web site. I know the reason why you’re here may not be an easy one. It’s difficult to see those we love in need -- but you’ve made an important choice to find them appropriate assistance -- assistance that will enable them to stay in their familiar environment, which is always such a big comfort. It’s hard enough to give up doing things for themselves, such as driving, preparing meals, all the things we take for granted, so having the ability to stay in their own home eases the way for assistance.
A major reason I started In-home Care™ is because of my experience with my own mother. Unfortunately, after surgery for a brain aneurism she appeared fine but the next day suffered a serious stroke and was in a coma for about 2 months. When she came out of the coma, she was debilitated, losing nearly 80% percent of her short term memory and was wheelchair bound, unable to perform everyday tasks. After intensive rehabilitation she was sent home. She had aides until she somewhat recovered, but my parents went through so many of them that there never was any sense of regularity. Afterwards, she was able to feed herself and do some minor tasks but remained in a wheelchair. My father was 69 at the time and in good condition but he took care of her 24/7 and literally had no life unless I came over to relieve him. I visited often although I lived 60 miles away. I’d make them huge amounts of easy to heat foods so they could have nutritious meals. My mother being a proud person, not wanting to be a burden -- and, I suspect because of the hardships on our family -- eventually signed herself into a nursing home and died shortly after. If my father knew back then that he could have had assistance regularly and affordably, he might have used them.
And so I am committed to assisting families in Northeast Florida, people just like you, in finding the best possible solutions for their elderly loved ones. Besides offering the kind of people we would all welcome as a helping hand, I’ve also put together an array of ancillary services. The Voice of Help™ Alert System and Wellness Reminders are there to aid seniors when they are on their own -- non-intrusive solutions that provide the additional safety and assistance they require, offered in an easily affordable manner.
Please look through our information and feel free to contact us with your questions or to schedule a 100% free consultation.
I hope we can be of assistance to you and your loved ones.
