Going Beyond Home Care, VHS offers a variety of in-home supportive care services to help our clients maintain the dignity and independence everyone deserves. From housekeeping to personal care, the purpose of home care is to promote, maintain, and restore the health of our clients while minimizing the effects of an illness, loneliness, or disability. Home Care Services are tailored to the individual needs of the client and their family.

Supervised by Registered Nurses, our Certified Home Health Aides are licensed under the Board of Nursing and follow a Plan of Care developed by the nurse and the family. The Plan of Care is reevaluated every 60 days and nurses check in with the client at least once every 30 days to make sure the client and family are satisfied with their service.

This service is for people who can attend to their personal needs, but find comfort in having someone around or doing household chores that are difficult to maintain.

Without immediate help, these elderly individuals may also suffer prolonged pain, emotional distress, or secondary medical problems like dehydration, pneumonia, renal failure, or pressure ulcers. The good news is that Lifeline can help your loved one get access to care, even when you can't be there.
