Personal Care and Support Services for Yourself or Your Loved Ones

The vast majority of today’s healthcare consumers and especially seniors want to stay in their home as they age, but sometimes independence needs a helping hand. That’s where in-home personal care and support services come in.

Happier and More Confident at Home

It makes perfect sense that you or your aging loved ones, most likely your parents, would
rather remain in familiar surroundings than move to assisted living-or a skilled nursing
facility Home is where the heart thrives - and family connects!

We're-here for this familiar story and countless others...

Mom knows where everything is. Her favorite chair is, just right. Friends and family are
nearby. But worry sets in - about her safety about whether she's eating right (or at all), or
about whether she's taking her medications on-time. Mom’s not getting around as well as
she used to either.

Nothing says love like giving Mom the boost she-needs to be independent, to age-on her
terms and be-safe and healthy.

This is where Interim HealthCare of Allentown can help.

Specialized Home Care for Alzheimer’s and Dementia


Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, a progressive medical condition that erodes memory, thinking, and problem-solving abilities and can dramatically alter behavior in later stages.

Interim HealthCare of Allentown offers advanced, customized care for Alzheimer's and Dementia patients that blends personal care and support services with activities such as music therapy to help create a safe, calming environment.

Help for Family Caregivers


Spouses and adult children are usually the first to step in and help their loved one with certain tasks. You do it from the heart, but it can wear you down. In-home care provides priceless respite for caregivers – for a couple of hours, for a day, or long enough for you and your own family to take some time away. Whether you need time to get your chores done, or simply some much-needed rest to recharge your inner strength, we’re here to help with respite care.

In-home personal care can provide long-term respite, too, by regularly taking over the care and light household tasks so you can devote yourself to spending quality time with your parents.
