What is non-medical care? Non-medical care focuses on assisting with daily needs, such as meal preparation, running errands, medication reminders, light housecleaning, personal care and hygiene, transportation to doctor visits and many other non-medical tasks.

Why use non-medical care? Non-medical care allows family members to spend quality time with their loved one. Non-medical care helps prevent caregiver burn out in family members. Instead of the family member spending hours doing the grocery shopping, cleaning, personal care, and all of the doctor appointments, they are able to be a companion to their loved one instead. Non-medical care also benefits family members who live out of state or a great distance from their loved one. Despite the distance apart your family can have peace of mind that your loved one is being cared for with proper meals, light house keeping, personal care, and someone to talk to on a regular basis. Community of Helping Angels will also communicate your loved ones status or issues to the relatives regularly via phone, providing updates on their social, physical and emotional well-being.
