About Allcare
Allcare Family Services, Inc. was formed by two local businessmen in 1985 and continues to be locally owned and operated. A Community Home Health Care Organization providing nursing and health related services in the home as well as in institutional settings. Although Allcare services nursing homes, hospitals, adult centers, and many other organizations, the main focus has been home care.

Why home care?. . .
Home health care services provide an alternative to hospitalization or nursing home care which will allow the individual to remain in familiar surroundings where they can be allowed to maintain as normal a lifestyle as possible. The services provided by Allcare are designed specifically to meet the individual’s changing needs.

Services can be long or short term. Perhaps a family member needs to be out of town for a short period of time or simply would like to attend a special function. . .call Allcare! There are no minimum number of days required to begin service, and one only needs to commit to two hours of care in order to qualify as an Allcare client.

Allcare is committed to working closely with the client, the family, and the physician to ensure the best of care will be provided.
