Help raise awareness and advocate for others by educating yourselves. Anyone under stress could unintentionally become an abuser. You are not alone, Serving Hands Senior Care has ways to help prevent elder abuse in your family.

We seek to improve the quality of senior life through providing high quality dependable, caring, compassionate and affordable service. Client’s individual needs are carefully assessed, understood and met through our trustworthy and compassionate caregivers.

We take a whole family approach to making sure our elderly are taken care of as they should be and offer respite care to family members whether just a few hours a day, a week or 24 hour care through the weekends just so the family caregiver can get some ‘me time’ to relax, go out with friends or just relax. If you don’t take care of yourself, it’s impossible to take care of them.
