Somebody Needs You

As a home care assistant, you’ll help patients with daily living activities, plan and prepare their meals, and, most importantly, provide them with much-needed companionship.

Did you know that isolation from others is as physically damaging as an unhealthy lifestyle? Your care may very well extend a life.
