Aging at Home

In today’s time, we are finding more and more that our elderly loved ones prefer aging at home over nursing homes and assisted living facilities for as long as possible. Keeping their independence is the main motivator. Being around things that are familiar, and adhering to their own schedule are also pretty high on the motivation list.

At Guardian Angels of Home Health, Inc. we offer many programs along with our competitive rates to help your family keep your loved ones safe, happy and secure while remaining at home.

Medicaid and Medicaid Waivers

We are now accepting Medicaid and Medicaid Waivers. Medicaid Waivers were designed in the hope of helping more of our elderly with Aging at Home. The services are the same as our clients have come to expect from us over the years through self-pay and other insurances, but at no cost to the qualified participant. For more information on these programs, you can contact the

Using the newest in technology to thoroughly screen our Caregivers, we obtain both federal and state criminal background checks.  After verification of their credentials, they then complete competency testing.  Once the Caregiver meets the criteria of Guardian Angels of Home Health, Inc. we carefully match each client with a qualified Caregiver.  Once you feel satisfied with the Home Care Plan and the qualified caregiver, we will continue to work with you to assess the client’s needs and periodically review and update the Home Care Plan – so your loved ones always receive the optimal care.

All of our qualified caregivers are not only thoroughly screened, but are also bonded and insured.
