A study showed that 90% of seniors want to stay in their home as long as possible. Your home is where you are comfortable. It is familiar. It provides comfort. With Northeast Kingdom Homecare, Inc. we can make that all possible!
Our caregivers provide companionship, light housekeeping, meal preparation, personal care, transportation...the list goes on.
We offer a number of care services, which are customized to every individual through a Personal Care Plan. Care needs are then provided by our highly-trained home care workers.
