TenderCare Information & Links

TenderCare believes that staying as independent as possible promotes higher morale, quality of life and longevity for our patients. We have also found that elderly patients respond to physical therapy and other treatments better when kept out of a “facility setting” and providing them with a feeling of independence within their own homes. We have extensive experience:

  • caring for Alzheimer’s / dementia patients
  • providing support following a stroke
  • providing respite care for a family caregiver
  • helping reduce the risk of falling
  • providing transportation
  • accompanying patients home following discharge from a hospital or rehabilitation facility
  • providing individual support in a hospital or other facility
  • providing companionship to lonely patients
  • enhancing security and safety
  • assisting with visits home from a rehabilitation facility

Whether your loved one needs care next month or next Monday, we’re ready to start – usually within 24-48 hours.
