Many times, caring for a client involves family, so My Choice can also play a role in providing “respite care” for the family caregiver (i.e., a wife caring for a husband, or a daughter or son caring for parents).
Constant caregiving can bring considerable stress because the caregiver’s focus is centered on the one needing care. Very often, we see that when we give relief with daily routines, allowing the family caregiver more time for themselves, the relationship strengthens.
In the 21st century, the demands placed on family and other informal caregivers continue to escalate, and will eventually affect nearly every American family.
It’s everyone’s greatest fear: a parent starts to forget things; he becomes bewildered, confused, and angry; finally, he can’t take care of himself and needs full-time care. Adult children are increasingly faced with their biggest nightmare – parents who are as helpless as young children.
If you find yourself caring for an aging loved one, you are not alone!
My Choice can help you by providing:
Qualified, caring, trained, insured, bonded, and flexible caregivers who can help you take a few hours, without feeling guilty or stressed, while you take care of yourself or other members of your family. Our caregivers can assist your elderly loved one for a few hours a week, a few hours a day, or more. Giving yourself a little bit of time away may be just what the doctor ordered and will help you to be a much better family caregiver.
In-home assessments. We routinely perform in-home assessments that result in a customized care plan for your loved ones. You may choose to have us carry out the care plan in whole or in part, or you may simply choose to use the care plan to improve your own ability to care for your loved one.
Access to information and training for caregivers. We have access to (and offer) a wealth of information, training and resources for caregivers.
Fall-prevention assessments and training. One of the largest sources of injuries among seniors is falling. We can help you assess the risks that your loved one faces and provide education on how to minimize the risk of falling. Also, if you request, we will even conduct a free workshop on fall prevention for your group. Visit the Fall Prevention section to learn more.
Home safety checks. We have extensive experience in the multi-faceted process of ensuring that your loved one’s home is safe, which is vital to maintaining independence for as long as possible.
Support and understanding. We can help you get connected with support groups and individuals in our area that can help YOU, as well as help you care for your loved one.
If you are a family caregiver in need of help, don’t hesitate to contact us. You can talk to us about your unique situation, schedule a free in-home assessment, and be well on your way to a happier, healthier life for you and your loved one.
All of my dealings with the amazing staff at My Choice have revealed them to be the most sincere, honest, and compassionate individuals that truly care for others and go out of their way to provide the best for all, including their employees, caregivers, and clients. I would highly recommend!

We have shopped and experienced several Senior Care facilities, and it is always tough to find someone good enough for "your" parent(s). My Choice and Mella have finally put my mind at ease. Their daily logs allow me to check in without holds or confusing delays, they are willing to work with your special requests, and my father feels safe (cared for) in his environment. My Choice makes me (us) feel like we're part of one big family/community.

My Choice was very timely, and courteous, when dealing with my father. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family in the future! The staff treated us more like family, and sure helped to make the transition to home care easy, and stress free.

The customer service and communication I have received from My Choice have been nothing short of amazing. These times with parents can be tense and I have been so relieved to have My Choice tackling a majority of the stressors, so that I can enjoy my dad again.

Great company that provides in home senior care. What really stood out to me was how kind their staff was and willing to help with anything that needed to be done. They treat their clients as if it was their own family rather a number and this was proven by their strong ethics and character I’ve experienced throughout working with them.

My father needed around the clock care after a serious heart attack, my family choose My Choice because of the great communication with the owners and the ability to reach them any time we needed to ask a question. I think this company goes above and beyond to take care of their clients and am happy my father is happy with his caregivers.

Used them for help with my mom and the caregivers were wonderful. Always on time and did extra every time they came. The owners are available 24/7 via an emergency contact phone and billing was always correct thanks to their clock in and out systems. Everyone in the office is very professional and pleasant to talk with when I called with a question. I highly recommend them for any family member.

Former employee here. This is a smaller than usual company that takes good care of their clients and employees. They strive to match the best fit for their clients and go above and beyond known needs. They earned 5 stars from my point of view. Would recommend as an employer and a provider!

"Our My Choice caregiver is a treasure. She brightens my mother’s day and is so helpful. She has de-cluttered whole rooms, planted daffodils, polished silver, cooked special recipes, picked up medications and been a jewel in every way."

"We laugh and talk about art and really enjoy being together. I look forward to her visits and am happy to get out and about. Bless you for finding my special friend."
