Frequently Asked Questions


How do you select your staff?

We seek to hire compassionate individuals with a strong commitment to client care. We have very stringent hiring standards. Each applicant’s credentials, job history and references are carefully checked and verified. A complete background check is performed. Applicants are interviewed thoroughly and must demonstrate their knowledge, competence and skills through completion of written tests and hands-on skill assessments which meet or exceed the criteria established for agency licensure in Pennsylvania.

How much do personal care and home support services cost and who pays for them?

Services are not typically covered by commercial health insurances. PA County/State Programs for the Elderly and those for the Intellectually and Physically Disabled may provide coverage for our services. When coverage is not available, they may be paid for by credit card or personal check. Unfortunately, home support and personal care services are not covered by Medicare. Please call us at 267-525-7003 so we may assess your needs and discuss your coverage options.
