Home care for the elderly is by far the preferred alternative to assisted living facilities and all forms of institutional care. According to research by AARP, a whopping 90 percent of seniors want to stay in their own homes as they age, even as they begin to need day-to-day assistance or on-going health care.
Home care is for wherever you call home, be it a private home, independent or assisted living community, rehabilitation facility, hospital or long term care unit or a skilled nursing facility.

At Pin Oak Caregivers, we provide one-on-one attention and care, which helps not only with these daily physical and mentally-challenging tasks, but also with your loved one’s overall sense of well-being. We stimulate them with conversation, activities, assistance in appropriate exercise (such as taking walks or going out to the garden), and advocate for them during doctor visits or in situations impacting your loved one’s health and wellbeing.
Our process starts with a free consultation. We will then set an appointment for an on-site visit to assess your needs. At that time, we will develop a care plan specifically tailored to your loved one and provide your senior the best-suited caregiver. Compatibility is key to a lasting relationship. We are experts at matching our client’s with caregivers, but if changes are needed or wanted you are always in the driver’s seat. Finally, we continuously monitor the care delivery, reporting all progress or changes in the senior’s health and well-being to the designated individual.
Many American families are “far flung” around the country due to employment, family and numerous other scenarios. For this reason, we provide all our clients with the ability to monitor the presence of our caregivers in real time on the Web.
