Imagine earning money while taking care of your loved ones!

You can be a paid companion to an elderly relative, friend, or neighbor.

1.      Do you have a cherished spouse, parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt, uncle, cousin, friend, or neighbor who requires home care?

2.      Are they getting the care they need and deserve as age-related issues develop?

3.      Are you in your 40s and 50s and experiencing role reversal as you care for your aging parents?

4.      Are you overwhelmed financially and emotionally with being a member of the sandwich generation – squeezed between raising your own children and taking care of your aging parents or in-laws? 

If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, Emanuel Home Care Services can help. Let them guide you in obtaining the best possible tender loving care for your family members.
