About Longview Home Care

For seniors looking to age in place rather than move to a retirement home non-medical home care can help make it possible.  Family caregivers work hard to keep their loved ones from requiring assisted living or nursing home care. But the truth of the matter is that it is often necessary for family caregivers to be able to maintain jobs, provide for their own families, and even take a break now and then to tend to social and personal needs. Non-medical services can range from housekeeping and personal grooming assistance to meal preparation, help with eating, companionship, and caregiver respite.  Finding the right provider for your loved one is critical and working with an agency can help you find someone with the right qualifications while also ensuring coverage if your caregiver is ill or wants to take a vacation. Home care agencies provide the proper background checks and criminal background.

At The Eldercare Channel of Longview, Washington, we want to help make your search for an in home care provider goes smoothly.  To the right, you will find that we offer a comprehensive directory of providers and agencies in our area, thanks to our video host Nancy Verhei of Elder Options.  We also offer information and resources designed to help make this and many other senior decisions easier. Elder Options provides free consultations on the phone or in our offices to help families plan how to approach a family member if they are hesitating looking for help. They can also help families find caregivers through agencies or hiring privately.
