Flexible Schedules

Finding the right person to help means finding a person who is available when you need them. We’ve been in your shoes before and we know that life does not always happen according to schedule. That is why we adjust our schedule when you need it. Sometimes that means rescheduling, other times it means staying a little later than planned because you are stuck in traffic. We’re here to help you solve problems.

Life does not happen in eight hour blocks, so when you need help for a few hours, we provide peace of mind that your loved one has the care needed. Talk to your local AmeriCare caregiver to learn how we can help you live life according to your schedule.
