Important features already included in your care plan:
Clinical Social Worker
Our clinical social worker will design a plan to
meet the needs of the client. Our social worker will
customize a care plan to include any doctor’s

Further, the caregiver will proactively look for deterioration of health and assess the overall well-being of the client.
Neighborhood Home Care employees are pre-screened for honesty, integrity, and general aptitude.
