Extended Hand Home Care is the ideal solution for elderly or disabled individuals
who want to maintain their independence and dignity by continuing to live
in the comfort of their own homes. Our companions make their lives easier by performing many of the tasks which have
become difficult and tiring.
Extended Hand Home Care’s respite service
provides family caregivers short term breaks.
Caring for a friend or family member is a difficult
job, one that should not be done alone. Whether

medical appointments or just to take a break, our

a few hours to twenty-four hour care. This allows individuals to remain in their own environment which tends to be less stressful on the individual.
