Maintain your independence—safer and longer

We’re used to being independent and taking care of ourselves. And needing a bit of extra help can be a hard adjustment to make.

It’s not unusual for our clients to tell us that they’re finding it harder to do everyday activities around the home. Going up and down stairs, preparing meals, or even driving can become more difficult as we age. But with the right help, you can continue to live in the comfort of your own home, even if it’s not as easy as it used to be.

Nearly 90% of seniors believe the ability to stay in their own homes is essential to maintaining their independence. The right home care services can help to make that possible. If you are recovering from surgery or need help with your daily routine, home care services provide much-needed assistance.

Home care provides a vital service for many families. Help with multiple tasks around the house can be a great relief for those who find it difficult to manage everything on their own. With Halcyon’s caring services, we can support you or a family member with any non-clinical needs you may have.

What’s the difference between home care and home health?


Home care assists with activities of daily living, such as: Dressing, Showering, Dementia care, Cooking, Light housekeeping, Companionship, Medication reminders, Driving, Fall-risk prevention and many other activities that keeps clients happy, calm, safe—and as independent as possible.

Home Health

Home healthcare focuses on providing medical treatment, while home care focuses on providing non-medical assistance with activities of daily living. For example, a home health nurse might provide wound care or give medication, while a home care nurse's aide might help with bathing or dressing. Ultimately, the decision of which type of care to choose will depend on the specific needs of the individual and their family.
