Congratulations to Andreah, our Caregiver of the Month for May. Thank you, Andreah, for being an amazing member of our HomeChoice Home Care team!
We celebrated our scheduler's birthday in our staff meeting today. Maggie has been with us for 3 months and to say she has hit the ground running is an understatement. She was just starting to settle in when COVID-19 struck. She has managed to learn our software, learn about home care and navigate an unprecedented pandemic in [...]
Remember, the best thing we can do to combat fear is to control what we can and to choose hope and faith. We will get through this, together.
During this uncertain and stressful time, HomeChoice Home Care Solutions is doubling down on the conscientious care we provide to our clients and support we give our caregivers. We recently held an all hands staff meeting to address every aspect of the Coronavirus crisis and how it will affect our clients and caregivers.
Numerous studies have shown that regular exercise benefits people of all ages, including those 65-and-over. Sadly, millions of aging in place elderly Americans don’t exercise like they should, which eventually has a negative effect on their health and wellbeing.

Serving as a family caregiver for an aging in place elderly loved one is highly rewarding, but it can also be physically and emotionally draining. The average family caregiver in the U.S. also juggles at least a part-time job and household with their caregiving responsibilities, which makes their lives even more challenging. What follows are some reliable respite care options when it’s time for you to take a well-deserved break.
Social media has become a powerful tool for meeting new people around-the-world, or staying in touch with friends and family members. Many Americans aged 65-and-over are homebound due to a chronic illness, disability or other reasons that makes it harder for them to interact with others. If you’re serving as a caregiver for a homebound [...]
