About Our Home Care

Home care refers to a range of health and social services provided at a person’s home to maintain or restore their health and well-being. This type of care is often preferable for many people as it allows them to stay in a familiar and comfortable environment while receiving the support they need. Home care can benefit various individuals, including older adults, those recovering from surgery or illness, individuals with chronic conditions, or those who need assistance with daily activities.

What risk do seniors face without Home Care?

Several problems and risks can arise if an older relative does not receive the necessary home care services. Some of these include:

  • Increased Risk of Falls and Injuries: Older individuals are more prone to falls, which can lead to severe injuries. Without assistance, they might face mobility challenges and a lack of necessary support.
  • Medication Mismanagement: Older adults often have complex medication regimens. Without assistance, there’s a risk of incorrect dosage, missed doses, or drug interactions, leading to health complications.
  • Social Isolation and Loneliness: Lack of companionship and social interaction can lead to feelings of loneliness and may contribute to mental health issues such as depression and anxiety.
  • Safety Concerns: Without proper supervision and care, older adults may be at risk of accidents such as burns, cuts, or other injuries while attempting to perform household tasks.

All Services

Meal Preparation

Seniors may just need assistance with basic tasks around the home, such as meal preparation. Our team of kind, compassionate caregivers offers meal prep assistance with healthy meals that taste delicious.​

Light Housekeeping

As we age, some chores around maintaining the home can become challenging. Lighthousekeeping assistance eases the burden of these tasks and keeps the house up to a comfortable living standard.

Assistance with Hobbies

One of the most important things to keep seniors in good spirits is encouraging hobbies they know and love. Our team of friendly caregivers is happy to participate and promote hobbies that allow seniors to stay busy and satisfied.

Respite and Family Relief

When you live far away from San Diego or just need some relief from the full-time job of caring for a senior, respite care is a great solution that allows family members to have a little bit of breathing room.

Laundry

Lifting clothes to and from the washer and dryer can be tiring for seniors. Our laundry assistance helps alleviate this stress with help doing the laundry, and folding clothes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What services are included in home care?

Home care can encompass a wide range of services tailored to meet the needs of an individual. These include personal care (like assistance with bathing, dressing, and grooming), homemaking (cleaning, cooking, and grocery shopping), companionship, and specialized care for conditions like dementia.

How much does home care cost, and does insurance cover it?

The cost of home care can vary depending on factors such as location, the type and extent of services required, and the agency or professional providing the care. Some home care services may be covered by private health insurance or other government programs, but coverage and eligibility criteria can differ. It’s essential to check with your insurance provider and local agencies to understand the cost and potential financial assistance available.

How can I ensure that the home care provider is trustworthy and qualified?

Ensuring that a home care provider is trustworthy and qualified involves researching and vetting potential providers or agencies. You can:

"A blessing to work with"

Porsha and her team are the BEST! They have been providing care for my parents for the past 3+ years and the Golden Care team worked their tail ends off to ensure there was excellent coverage and care for my parents. My parents have now transitioned to Assisted Living and I can’t say THANK YOU enough for the past 3 years… Porsha, Linda, Holly, Allie, and the wonderful Caregivers, have been a blessing to work with.

"Helped me right away"

I needed to have surgery and I needed aftercare assistance, but I had just moved to southern CA, and didn’t know anyone. The 1st place that I called was not responsive at all for three days, but Holly at Golden Care was able to help me right away! The entire “Golden Care” experience was handled with care, it was fast and efficient! If you want things done right the first time, I highly recommend Golden Care!

"Incredible service"

Special thanks to Golden Care for holding my family’s hand (sometimes literally) through an incredibly difficult period in taking care of my mother. Everyone from Porsha (owner), Linda (Director) and home aides were all invaluable in their care, compassion, and attentiveness to not only my mom, but my entire family. My mother suffered a massive stroke and needed around the clock care. In less than a day’s time, they had care set up, 24/7 for the next week. They continued to check in, and walk us through some of the more difficult moments, and recommended and coordinated directly with a wonderful hospice company, when the time for that came. Thank you Golden Care for your incredible service and passion for the job.

"Successful rehabilitation after serious injury"

When Keith suffered the loss of mobility from a traumatic head injury, the physical therapist at his rehabilitation facility could only work with him 3 times a week. Worried about his slow recovery and the pain he was suffering, Keith’s family contacted Golden Care. Our Care Manager connected our team of caregivers with the facility and provided Keith with 24-hour supervision and care. Through daily physical therapy and around-the-clock support, Keith was able to return to full mobility"

"Aging safely in the comfort of your home"

Brian’s family knew things were getting serious when he could no longer make it up the stairs to go to bed. They approached him with assisted living facilities but he refused to leave his home. They decided to explore other options, and that’s when they came across Golden Care. Working with our caregivers allowed Brian to avoid assisted living while still getting the care he needs. We started a daily walking regimen with him and prepared nutritious meals that catered to his tastes. It was tiring at first, but now Brian walks his block daily and has no problem climbing the stairs to go to bed.

"The comforting hand of a hospice caregiver"

Near the end of her life, Sophie could no longer walk and was dependent on her caregiver Martha to provide the intimate care that her body no longer had the strength for. Martha sat by Sophie’s bedside day and night. Sophie told her intimate stories about her life and they listened to her favorite music together. When it was time for Sophie to go, Martha held her hand and comforted her until the very end.

Dear Martha, This is a very belated Thank you for all you did for my mom as she transitioned. Your loving care, your tenderness, your empathy- all above and beyond what I could have hoped for. You are in the right profession, and can never be paid enough for what you do. My family (especially my brother John) think you are a superstar! Thank you! Mary W.

"In good hands"

You couldn’t ask for more caring and loving people at Golden Care. My mom was 91 and we were determined to keep her at home until it was no longer viable. With the help of Amber and the other caregivers, we were able to do so. I have worked with a few other agencies and due to their lack of response in a timely manner or just not a good fit with caregivers, I was so glad to have found Golden Care. Linda is the BEST at communication. She herself has dealt with aging parents and is so compassionate and helpful. You know your parent is in the best hands with this team.
