Short-Term Care

Home Health Care Assistance for Short-Term, Supplemental Care

Offering Flexibility in Hours, Services and Staff

Short term home health care services provide a client with in-home support while they recover from an illness, injury, or medical procedure that impedes their safety or ability to perform everyday tasks.

Short term care gives families peace of mind that experienced paid caregivers are assisting their loved one during recuperation from an illness or injury.

Respite Care

In addition to making the recovery process smoother and safer, short term care can also be used to support family caregivers. Respite care allows family caregivers to tend to their own medical or professional needs, attend family functions, travel, and mitigate the risk of caregiver burnout.

Planning Short Term Care

Short term care can be arranged with reasonably short notice, however prospective clients are strongly encouraged to begin communicating with a provider at least two weeks before service is needed.

We used SelectCare for 7 years to help care for my elderly parents, and they were lifesavers! SelectCare is professional, reliable and amazing, and we could not have survived 7 tough years of eldercare without them. I felt like I had a friend and a partner with them. They sent caring, well trained aides like Agnes every weekend. They also have skilled nurses like Kelly who took an interest in my parents and examined them periodically. Kelly was always available to help with nursing questions and suggestions. At times we needed substitutes for our private weekday aides, and SelectCare always came through for us and found someone. The 2 times they didn't have one of their own aides available to substitute they referred us to friendly competitors who helped out. They never left us hanging. It's also noteworthy that they continued to serve us reliably through the Covid lockdowns. SelectCare was also easy to deal with on administrative aspects like billing. I highly recommend SelectCare for home aides and eldercare.
