Golden Heart Home Care Review

As people become older, they may find they need assistance with the day-to-day activities that independence requires. Some people choose to fill this need by going into an assisted living facility or a similar arrangement. But these days more and more seniors are choosing to age in place—stay in their homes as long as possible, and have caregivers come to them to provide the help they need. Home care agencies specialize in helping seniors maintain their independence at home, and Golden Heart Senior Care, a franchised company with two dozen locations around the country, has a solid track record of providing these types of home care services. Golden Heart also offers a number of other helpful services, including helping seniors find quality housing when they’re ready to move out of their home.
