There are many reasons to choose Aging Services for Communities as your in-home care provider, but we feel the primary reason is our people. Without dedicated and concerned caregivers even the most recognized in-home healthcare provider wouldn’t survive. At ASC our friendly employees take great pride in what they do; they fully enjoy helping seniors and disabled individuals in any way possible. It is our compassionate staff that assists not only our clients, but also their families, putting nerves at ease and removing worry. Our insightful employees also observe your needs, acting on those observations by presenting the agency with suggestions on how to improve or add to our program offerings.
At Aging Services for Communities we continuously work to customize our programs to meet your specific needs. Before any services are performed we take the time to meet with you, and your family if requested, to assess your individual needs. Through our one-on-one assessment we can determine what services you require and if any outside services are necessary, if so we provide referrals. Our trained assessment personnel work around your schedule, meeting whenever it’s convenient for you – weekdays, evenings, or weekends.
If you feel you or a family member may be in need of in-home care / eldercare take the free quiz offered by Live Well At Home. Feel free to contact us at anytime, even if it’s for a single question – knowledge is power and most often power results in independence.
Working directly with recognizable agencies, an array of insurance plans, and various counties enables us to provide the reliable services you need. At Aging Services for Communities we work with:

Safety is important to you and your loved ones. At Aging Services for Communities our ever-watchful caregivers can assist in improving the safety of your home – clearing walk-ways, removing hallway obstacles, adjusting the location of everyday items, and presenting you with information to keep you safe. Our employees also observe health and overall well-being, notifying loved ones of any unusual changes. We maintain a high-level of awareness so we can keep you and your family informed of developments or potential setbacks.
"In all honesty, my mother could not have lived independently for as long as she has without your essential help. Aging Services exceeded our expectations in loving, personal care, shopping,transportation and friendship. God bless you for the huge difference you have made by taking a load of burden from my mom's shoulders and mine. You have enabled my mother to make a smoother transition to her current living situation and to have enjoyed many years of freedom living as she desired. Thank you. Sincerely,"
"The best way to describe Aging Services Respite givers is that they are LIFESAVERS. Each and every one of them has been kind, understanding, warm, cheerful and willing to help in many ways. My husband has enjoyed their company and I appreciate not having to worry about him when I am away. Without them I would have not been able to attend graduation parties, birthday parties or lunch with my girlfriends. I feel so lucky to have found out about this great program run by truly wonderful people."
"ASC is doing wonderful work in helping people to prolong the time they can live in their own homes with the independence and dignity they want and deserve so much. And for those of us concerned about aging parents, you are a most valuable resource for help and information. We truly appreciate all ASC has done to help make mom's life better. Thank you so much!"
