Choosing among dozens of in-home care options in the Philadelphia area can be stressful. And we help you navigate those difficult choices. Our priority when we first interact with potential clients is not to sell our services that may not be exactly what they need, but to help assess the situation, educate about options, and ensure they obtain the right care from us or someone else.
Our caregivers are employees, not contractors, and are extensively vetted and trained to ensure that they properly match your needs. In a nutshell, we provide the level and quality of care that we would want our parents or family members to receive.
Assisting Hands’ goal is to help clients remain safely and comfortably in their own homes. Please see the towns where we provide in home care in the Philadelphia area below. Click here for home care in Montgomery County.

Consider your options: hiring a home care agency vs direct hiring
Remaining at home with the assistance of a caregiver is the preferred living arrangement for many seniors and others who need help but wish to retain their independence. A critical question is whether you intend to directly hire a caregiver, or do it through a home care agency or a registry. To find the right caregiver, most people turn to a full-service home care agency like Assisting Hands, which screens, hires and trains its employees.
