Services at a Glance

Here a list of the services we offer to keep you or your loved one living independently. We can provide any combination of these. Our caregiving services are available 7 days a week and we can support you with just a few hours or 24 hour a day care. We know your parent or loved one wants to remain at home surrounded by the people and things they love. Our caregivers can make that happen.

We also support loved ones who are already in assisted living communities but now need a bit more care than the facility can provide.

Our services are provided along the southern Maine coast from Old Orchard Beach to Freeport and all the towns in-between and several miles inland. Major areas covered included Saco, Buxton, Scarborough, Cape Elizabeth, Portland, Falmouth, Yarmouth and more.
