Best of Home Care Provider of Choice We’re proud to announce our fourth home care award from Home Care Pulse in the past year, and because of that achievement, we’re now the most awarded home care agency in Wake County! Thank you to our caregivers, clients, and families! We are honored.

We recently had the pleasure of presenting our foundation presentation, “Live Well at Home,” to members of the “Keenagers” group at the wonderful White Memorial Presbyterian Church in Raleigh. It’s a wonderful group of caring people and we had a great discussion about assessing a loved one’s ability to live well at home along with setting goals if you determine in-home care is a good thing.

You can download a PDF copy of the presentation on our website . You can also assess your ability to live well at home by talking ten minutes to fill out our “Live Well at Home Self-Assessment.”
