Our services, which we affectionately nicknamed “Total Live at Home Care, or TLC,” are focused on one major goal — extending one’s ability to live independently and safely at home with dignity and purpose.
You will find by spending just a few minutes reading about our services that we provide more than the average home care agency. During our in-home assessment, we strive to understand your needs from a holistic view by considering the whole person, not just the home care services we can provide.
This is what separates Aware Senior Care from the hundreds of agencies that provide home care. It’s about the whole person and it takes a village — a team of compassionate experts working together to meet the needs of the individual and family.
Our TLC Program
The Aware Senior Care TLC program offers a variety of services that are customized to your unique needs. We will also refer you to a member of our Circle of Support if our agency does not provide all of the services your loved one needs.
We can provide our home care services in a variety of environments:
- Home (All TLC services)
- Independent Living Community (All TLC services)
- Assisted Living Community (Companion/Personal Care)
- Rehabilitation Facility/Skilled Nursing Facility (Companion Care & Welcome Home)
- Hospital (Companion Care & Welcome Home)

Total Live Well at Home Care is more than just in-home care. Our unique program draws together highly qualified, compassionate professionals providing the diverse services and specialized products you need to live well and thrive at home.
Our first priority is to understand how we can help you, and it starts with a conversation. We want to learn more about your needs and concerns.
We do a lot of listening to understand the current situation. The core question is how can we help you or how can we help your loved ones. After listening to your feedback, we will ask specific questions about all aspects of daily living to get the best picture we can over the phone. If we feel we can help, we will recommend an in-home assessment.
A FREE In-Home Assessment for Home Care:
A registered nurse conducts an in-depth assessment to determine what services are needed and to identify risks in the home. We seek to understand the client’s:
- Daily routines
- Medical history
- Health status
- Memory issues
- Safety concerns
- Emotional well-being
- And so much more
With this information, we develop a customized Plan of Care, unique to your loved one. There is no cost or obligation for the in-home care assessment. Our goal is to make sure we are the right fit for your home care needs.
Plan of Care
With the information from the assessment and input from the client and loved ones, a plan of care is developed. The plan outlines tasks and a schedule for services the client will receive. Our caregiver’s first visit will begin with a review of this plan with the client, family, agency supervisor.
