    Pet Care

    Pets are amazing companions at any age, but there comes a time that it can be more difficult to take care of your pet. Home Care for the 21st Century can provide stress free care for your precious pets, in your own home. We give them personalized love, attention and exercise and look after their safety and well-being, while ensuring the welfare and security of our clients.

    In addition to companionship, pets give seniors a responsibility and a purpose. Simply having to give a cat some water or take a dog outside can fill a senior's life and help them feel useful. Pets make a home feel safer, providing seniors with a sense of security.

    In addition, seniors who own pets often experience numerous health benefits, including the following:

  • Boost immune system
  • Help overcome depression, anxiety, or loneliness
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Help fighting allergens
  • Decrease stress
  • Increased physical activity
  • Home Care for the 21st Century understands that pets can be an extension of the family, so our caregivers will walk, feed, play and clean up after your furry or feathered family member to make sure their needs are equally met.

    Respite Care

    Respite care provides temporary relief for a primary caregiver, enabling you to take a much-needed break from the demands of caregiving a sick, aging, or disabled family member. It can be arranged for just an afternoon or for several days or weeks. Care can be provided at home, in a healthcare facility, or at an adult day center. In addition to offering a break for the caregiver, respite care can also help the senior by letting him or her interact with someone other than the primary caregiver in a safe and supportive environment. Respite caregivers can help the senior complete daily activities like housework or cooking, personal hygiene, mental stimulation or just offer companionship.
