Why Home Care? What is Home Care?
U.S. Census Bureau. The number is much greater when you consider that it does not include informal care which is care given by a friend or family member. Home care is generally defined as non-medical support services delivered at the home of the senior. The aim of home care is to allow seniors to remain at home longer rather than enter an assisted living community, nursing home or other type of senior care. Home care may be appropriate if a senior prefers to stay at home but needs assistance with activities of daily living.
Activities of daily living include bathing, dressing, and meal preparation but may also extend to assistance with transportation, paying bills, making appointments, and simply being there to provide companionship and emotional support. Home care services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can be paid for directly by the client or through a variety of public and private funding sources such as Long Term Care Insurance, Workers Compensation, and Medicaid.

Who are We?
Our agency iHeart Home Care Agency is a family-owned, established company dedicated to the care of families in the Northern Jersey. We are a bonded and licensed health care provider. The caregivers we work with are steadfast, loyal, and of the highest integrity. We consider it imperative to screen all caregivers, and we make checking references and conducting background checks part of our screening process. We require our caregivers to engage in continued education and training to keep them in touch with the needs of their profession.
Our primary responsibility is to our clients and their families. We are hands-on owners whose phone is never turned off–24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. Free of charge, we personally meet with and assess the needs of each client prior to the start of service or selection of a caregiver. We will even consult on the best option for your individual situation, regardless of our continuing involvement.
After placement, we maintain a personal relationship with our clients and their families, remaining committed to the ongoing success of each match and providing replacement services if necessary.
While the majority of our clients come to us through references from grateful families with whom we have worked, we also work with those charged with the care of elderly or incapacitated individuals, including:
– Assisted Living Facilities
– Social Workers
– Rehabilitation Centers
– Nursing Homes
