When Joe & Cindy Lawrence-Price became the new owners of Village Home Care in January 2021, their mission was clear—to ensure that their clients received quality hourly and around-the-clock care.
One of the most requested services offered at Village Home Care is Respite Care. Respite Care is short-term care that provides temporary relief for primary caregivers of those who need assistance due to aging, illness, recovery, or rehabilitation. Caregivers seek respite so they can work outside of the home, complete personal tasks, or simply take a break. Respite Care can be especially useful in an emergency situation, such as if a caregiver becomes ill and cannot tend to their loved one’s needs.
Village Home Care’s aides provide supervision and companionship. They complete basic household tasks like laundry, grocery shopping, and light housekeeping. They assist with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s) which include dressing, bathing, oral hygiene, and eating. Aides stay at the client’s home 24 hours a day, providing family members with the peace of mind of knowing their loved one is never alone.
Village Home Care aides are thoroughly screened, receive initial training, and complete continuing education throughout their tenure.
Lawrence-Price says she “cares deeply about the clients she serves. If I don't have the staff to immediately provide needed care, I will refer a client to another agency. My priority is ensuring that people receive the care they need.”
