Osborn Home Care makes it easy for you to find the assistance you need to make your life at home happy and healthy. Here are answers to some of the questions you might have. If you don’t see what you need, please feel free to call us at 1-800-721-6695.
Osborn Home Care was created in 1996 to serve the growing number of seniors who choose to age in place. Osborn Home Care is owned and staffed by The Osborn, a nonprofit organization with a well-earned reputation for providing outstanding residential and health care services to seniors in the region for over 100 years. All Osborn Home Care caregivers are employees of The Osborn.
If you feel that you could benefit from assistance with your daily activities as you recover from an illness or surgery, or simply because of challenges associated with age, Osborn Home Care may be a good fit for you. A Care Manager will come to your house and do a complimentary consultation to determine whether our services are aligned with your needs.
Our Care Manager will meet with you and develop your personalized care plan. Together you will determine how many hours you need per week. We are available for short, 2-hour shifts up to 24 hours per day.
All employees of Osborn Home Care undergo a rigorous screening process; fingerprinting, criminal background checks, drug screening, confirmation of credentials and certifications, and work eligibility are all verified by The Osborn.
There is no fee for the initial consultation. There are many kinds of care that can be provided in your home: companion, personal care assistance and home health aide. Our Care Manager will develop a care plan based on your specific needs and go over affordable options and insurance coverages.
