Why Choose Private Home-Care?
Home – Care provides an important and essential service that helps many seniors and people with disabilities to remain in the comfort of their own homes. The advantage of private over government home care is like comparing apples and oranges. You can exchange government services for money and be in control of your home care services. You decide what type of caregiver comes into your home, what you want them to do and when they come to your home.
With the help and support of an experienced home – care team like Comforts of Home – Care, we allow families to be families and re-establish family roles. Our clients are able to return their focus to being a son, daughter, spouse or friend … and not that of a caregiver.

Enjoy Assurance and Peace of Mind
- At Comforts of Home – Care, we take your care seriously! We are the back-up plan! We don’t rely on family to have a back-up plan. If a companion fails to arrive at their shift, we are alerted electronically. We are on-call 24 hours a day and 7 days a week to replace the companion or deal with any emergency that may arise. Family and clients can have peace of mind knowing they can completely rely on our services.
- Compatibility guarantee: If you are not happy with any of our professional caregivers, we will replace them until you’re completely satisfied.
- Timeliness:We use a technology based clocking system that informs us when our employees arrive and depart each shift. This ensures accuracy of billing and reliability as we are alerted if our caregiver does not clock in on time for any reason.
