We’re Here to Help.
Looking for care for loved ones can be overwhelming and difficult. We are here to assist you in finding the best care and solutions for you and your family. Home care services can be provided in the home, hospital, nursing home, or in an assisted living facility.
The Aegis Difference
We treat our clients — and caregiving staff — like members of our own family: with love, respect and dignity. We aim to provide the most professional and personalized care available in the Triangle area. That means access to care within hours of an initial request and call-backs to clients on the same day. That means making frequent assessments of plans of care, and keeping family informed when things change. That also means using state-of-the-art technology to aid us in matching clients' care needs and preferences with caregivers' skills and experience.
Creating a Plan of Care.
To determine the appropriate level of care required, a full assessment of your specific situation will take place at your home or place of care. Together, we develop a plan of care with you that best meets your needs and ensures your safety and comfort. This plan of care will be revised as needed, and it will be evaluated frequently to ensure we make any adjustments or improvements needed.
Why Choose Home Care?
Compared to other options, home care has many advantages:
1. You receive care in your own home. This is the environment you are accustomed to and most comfortable in.
2. Care plans can be highly flexible. Care is customized to you and your needs.
3. You have the caregiver’s undivided attention. You are the sole responsibility of the caregiver. There is no need to
rush, nor are there other clients or patients who have to be prioritized.
4. Home care is cost effective. You may only need a few hours of care per day or per week. Why pay for around the clock
services when you just need some help with your morning routine? Compare to most facilities that charge about $400/day
plus an entrance fee, home care is a financially prudent option.
5. Home care is an effective “bridge.” Clients may start with our agency and at some point need to move to a different
type of care. We also have clients who decide they want to age in place and partner with us for their entire lives. We are
honored to be able to allow people to stay at home as long as possible.
