Quality care involves more than providing physical assistance and support. It is also about being there to listen, interact and to show genuine kindness.

Our caregivers provide companionship through personal visits whether you are at home, the hospital, or long-term care facility.

Homemaker Services help our clients reduce stress and worry. We ensure a cleaner, safer, more organized home environment.

Respite care provides relief for family members who are unable to provide care for loved ones during times of stress, illness or other unexpected circumstances, such as if the individual being cared for is experiencing changes due to the aging process, is cognitively impaired or suffers from a chronic illness.

Respite care has been shown to have positive effects on the mental and physical health of caregivers. Respite care helps to reduce stress and physical exertion and it diminishes the risk of the caretaker becoming overwhelmed by circumstances that are beyond his or her control. By sharing the caretaker role, a more consistent level of care can be achieved. Having respite care can help to put off the need to transfer the loved one to a permanent care facility.

Bytowne Homecare Services’ compassionate quality care extends beyond the family home and is also offered to individuals who reside in a retirement or assisted living residence. If you or your family must be away or have less time than you would like to visit, our Institutional Supplementary Care service will ensure that a complete care plan is in place. We will customize our service to work with your loved one’s existing support system, environment and needs.
Bytowne Homecare provides experienced live-in caregivers. Live-in caregivers stay overnight in the home, for a short period of time or permanently. Some of the services include:

  • 24/7 care and on-call support
  • Assistance with both personal care and activities of daily living

We work with you to find the most appropriate solution to meet your loved one’s needs. All of our caregivers are carefully screened, insured and bonded.
