Personal & Respite Care

“Personal Care” is a service that focuses on attending to the physical needs of people who are disabled or otherwise unable to take care of themselves. Examples of this care include bathing, management of bodily functions and assistance moving about the home.

“Respite Care”, on the other hand, refers to a break or temporary relief provided to caregivers of the ill or disabled. Respite care is a very important resource for family caregivers, who can become easily stressed or overwhelmed by such a commitment. Health Horizons Home Care helps families and friends by taking on some (or all) of the caregiving responsibilities for as little or as long as needed – enabling caregivers to spend precious quality time with their loved ones, when it matters most!

The following are just a few of the personal and respite care services we are proud to offer our customers, each tailored to meet your unique needs.
