Home Care Services
Our Services
Care Management Services

My Place Home Care provides a free in-home assessment that lets us  get to know our client and their family. The assessment helps us understand what services are required so we can develop a care plan.  In addition to discussing what you want, we also take the time to advocate for you and your health needs. We work hard to understand the circumstances facing our clients and their loved ones.

Our management team also conducts regular supervisory visits and makes follow-up phone calls to ensure that the care plan is working for the client and their family.
