Frequently Asked Questions


YP Reviews

Q: What are the different types of homecare?
A: Licensed home care provides skilled nursing and therapeutic services (physical therapy, occupational therapy) by individuals with advanced degrees under the supervision of your physician. A skilled agency is also licensed by the State Health department.
Non-medical / caregiver home care provides non-skilled personnel (aides, companions, homemakers) for personal care, companionship, safety, transportation, errands and other tasks, including emotional support. These agencies usually are licensed by the department of social services and require all care givers to be registered with the state of California. We are a full service licensed agency offering both skilled and non-medical services.
Q: What is the difference with a license by the state or a general business license?
A: An agency that is licensed by the Department of Public Health must adhere to stringent standards/guidelines of care and are subject to an annual State inspection. An agency with a standard business license has no standards of care or regulations to govern the care they provide.
