Home Care


are you not getting enough sleep?

not eating healthy or regularly?

not feeling well enough for normal tasks?

Caring for your parent, sibling, spouse, or loved one is no small feat. 

 Give yourself time to revive your body and spirit by bringing in professional and compassionate help to care for your loved one’s needs.


Caregiving is both an exceptionally rewarding and challenging responsibility. You’ve made sacrifices to serve in your role as caregiver for the one you love, and this is why you deserve time to relax and revive your spirits.

Our caregivers can offer this relief by coming in to care for your loved one while you take some time for yourself. They can assist your loved one with personal care needs such as bathing, dressing, grooming, or toileting, as well as household needs like light housekeeping, meal preparation, and even grocery shopping.

By bringing in the assistance of a professional caregiver, you can give yourself:

You can rest assured your loved one is being cared for in the best of hands. This allows not only your body but also your mind and spirit to take a necessary vacation. Whether a respite care worker visits your home once a week or three times a week – the point is, you receive time to rest.


When you call Golden Heritage Services Home Care, we will begin the process of getting to know you, your loved one, and your unique situation. We will schedule a time for one of our professionals to visit your home and provide a free assessment to determine your needs.

We’ll review your budget and discuss all of the available funding options for your care, including PA Support Services Waivers, the VA Aid & Attendance Pension Benefit, insurance, and private pay.

Curious to see how we can help you find the rest and relaxation you deserve?

We would love to meet you and answer any questions you may have about how we can support you and your family!

Mobility and hygiene are two of the most significant care needs for seniors. As people age, physical limitations arise which make even small tasks such as getting out of bed or combing hair challenging. Our trained caregivers provide assistance in a way that will dignify and honor your loved one, so that they can feel good about receiving care, and you’ll feel good knowing their most basic needs are met.

Protecting your loved one’s health and safety in the little things of everyday living is also important. Our professional caregivers offer the added peace of mind of knowing your loved one receives loving supervision in areas such as medication and exercise reminders, fall prevention measures, and safety precautions.

Sometimes all your senior needs is a gentle nudge to take their medicine or a “Let’s practice this together” to follow a doctor’s order. No harsh directives. No safeguards missed. Our caregivers are there to be kind and considerate while facilitating the senior’s health and wellness.

Companionship Care and Homemaking Services



Companionship Care

Some seniors who live alone at home are in good enough health to manage their physical care needs, such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and taking medication. For these seniors, living alone presents a different risk – loneliness.

Loneliness and social isolation have been linked to higher risks of other health issues, including high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, weakened immune system, anxiety, depression, cognitive decline, Alzheimer’s disease, and even death.

The purpose of companionship care from Golden Heritage Services Home Care is to offer company and friendship. The ultimate goal of our companions is to ensure the seniors are benefiting from quality connections and healthy activities.

Adult children want to make sure their aging parents are both physically and mentally well. With families of their own and busy schedules, they often have less time for regular check-ins than they would like, and so children often choose to hire companions to keep an eye on their aging parents and make sure they do not feel alone.

Home-Making Services

Think of homemaking as an addition to companionship care. With a homemaker, seniors will receive all the benefits of a companion, but the services extend to include additional aid. Some of the services offered by homemaking, in addition to the ones already noted above, include:

Benefits Of Companionship Care and Homemaking:

These services differ slightly in how they function, but are both essential to a senior’s well-being. From taking away loneliness to ensuring proper nutrition, companionship care and homemaking have many benefits for seniors.

For example, if you suspect your loved one isn’t eating well, having a homemaker available to cook nutritious meals can turn around your family member’s health.

Here are just a few of the benefits these services offer:

How Companionship and Home-Making Differ from Home Health Aides

Companionship care and homemaking services are separate from typical home health aides.

Golden Heritage Services Home Care companion professionals are able to serve, but not to any personal, hands-on care capacity.

For example, companions cannot help patients bathe or take their medications. Instead, they can prepare the bath and remind patients to take their medications.

Hiring companions or homemakers will cost less than hiring a home health aide, who undergoes additional training and usually needs a state license to provide hands-on care. The difference in cost can run $4-5 less per hour. For additional information on budget and payment options, see our Funding Options page.

home health aide


  • recovering from a recent surgery, heart attack, or stroke?
  • struggling to manage the health complications of a chronic disease or disability?
  • in need of assistance above personal care tasks?


Manage their health needs with skilled care from compassionate, trained professionals


Similar to caregivers, home health aides can perform personal care tasks, such as assisting with dressing, transferring, bathing, light housekeeping, meal preparation, and transportation. However, home health aides receive training and are able to perform tasks in addition to those that a non-medical caregiver would provide.

For example, home health aides with specialized training can administer a client’s medication or check vital signs such as pulse, temperature, respiration. Some can also provide help with braces or artificial limbs and perform a number of skilled nursing duties. Qualified home health aides may also change bandages and dressings and help with medical equipment.

If an even higher level of skilled care is needed, your home health aide could be a trained Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) or Patient Care Assistant (PCA).

Alzheimer’s or Dementia Care

There are more than 16 million people in the U.S. caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia disease.

If you’re one of those individuals, you understand the demanding physical and emotional strength required of a caregiver, and you also witness firsthand the toll it takes on your loved one struggling with memory loss.

To help your loved one, it’s vital to help them maintain a level of normalcy and independence in their daily lives, but that can be challenging to achieve.

Caring for a loved one who suffers from dementia or Alzheimer’s can be a heavy burden, but you do not have to do it alone!

Benefits of In-Home Alzheimer's and Dimentia Care

For families caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia, one of the most positive ways you can help your loved one is by providing specialized, non-medical Alzheimer’s care in the home.

When you bring professional care right into the home of your loved one, you’re providing:

  • Familiar frame of reference
  • Freedom to move about in a more familiar and unrestricted space
  • A way to minimize the stresses which can aggravate the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease
  • Daily orientation to time, place, person
    Continuity of daily routines and schedule
  • Safety with transportation and medication
  • Peace of mind for yourself knowing your loved one is being cared for by a trained professional

Benefits of In-Home Alzheimer's and Dimentia Care

Most Alzheimer’s patients, particularly those in the early and middle stages of the illness, can be cared for at home instead of at nursing homes or other facilities. In fact, more than half of all diagnosed Alzheimer’s patients continue to live in home settings, and 80-90% of those seniors rely on family and friends for care.

Golden Heritage Services Home Care’s personalized Alzheimer’s home care services allow your loved one to receive a customized care regimen which will take into account their environment and special needs in order to make daily life less difficult and stressful.

Evaluation Care Option for Alzheimer's Patients

If you’re still unsure if home care services are the right fit for your loved one, we want to help! We have designed an [e-book] to help compare various senior care options and their specific purposes. While we believe there are many added benefits to providing care in the comfortability of one’s own home, you may be wondering about other available Dementia options, such as Memory Care units in Retirement Homes.

At Golden Heritage Services, we’re more than just caregivers – we’re your extended family, here to support you, encourage you, and celebrate life’s moments with you every step of the way. So sit back, relax, and let us take care of the rest – because with us, you’re always in good hands.
