Certified & Personal Care Aides

“Clients have called our in-home nurses and home aides ‘angels’ who are ‘like family’…They are commissioned by our agency to support health, well-being, and quality of life, and to lift up the human spirit every day. There is absolutely no substitute for consistent, individualized, excellent care. We will accept nothing less.”

Francis Clement, PhD Founder and President
Sunshine Home Care

What is the difference between a Personal Care Aide & a Certified Home Health Aide for care at home? What do they have in common?

Our home health aides work as part-time or live-in care providers helping clients who need senior home care, home care for the disabled, post operative care, palliative care, or other types of specialized care. They are employees of our licensed agency, and importantly, all our aides are managed by Sunshine Home Care through quality care guidelines and visits to the client’s home.

Our aides follow an individualized plan of care for every client. This plan is created by our experienced nurse who conducts an assessment before in-home services are begun. The care plan’s goals are comprehensive: it addresses the medical as well as the psychological and emotional needs of the client to support both health and quality of life.

Personal Care Aides provide care at home by carrying out responsibilities including:

  • Grocery Shopping & Errands
