Looking for In-Home Care near Charlotte North Carolina?

  • home care charlotte ncHome Care provides an affordable alternative to institutional care, allowing you the privacy and dignity of maintaining your health care needs in your own home.Home care consists of services provided in your home by professional health care providers who are specially trained and experienced in providing for your maximum comfort. These services may be intermittent visits or extended continuous care.
  • Home Care is the fastest-growing segment of the health care industry. The rising costs of institutionalized care (nursing homes, hospitals, etc.) have led many individuals and health insurance companies to move to home healthcare services. Many patients need 24-hour care and can now be treated at home with a minimum of cost, utilizing live-in homecare. Live-in care is appropriate for those who may not be left alone or do not have the necessary support from family or friends.
  • Traditional hourly home care provides the necessary attention to care for the Client but for only short periods of time. Unlike other companies Affordable HomeCare requires no minimum hours. Personal care and daily living needs and some housekeeping is done during this time.
  • While cost savings are worthwhile, with Affordable HomeCare there is no reduction in the quality of care for our Clients. Home care Clients receive individualized personal care from one primary caregiver who also helps with housekeeping, laundry and meal preparation. Our services allow the person the option to remain in their own home, providing the comfort and familiarity that comes from living in their own secure surroundings.
  • Care is planned and monitored by our Quality Assurance Managers so you receive the best service possible. Unlike other companies, Affordable HomeCare uses many licensed nurses or Social Workers to provide professional oversite. For that reason Affordable HomeCare can work closely with your physician, nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist and medical social services, to design and follow a Care Plan that meets your specific needs.
