Reasons To Choose Us


With CHAP Accreditation, you can have the peace of mind knowing that our experienced agency bears accreditation of the highest standards.


No Service Contracts: Where other agencies require their clients to sign a contract guaranteeing a certain amount of hours of service per week, even if not used we have no service contracts. Our clients can choose from individually custom tailored services and increase or decrease hours as they wish, cancel at any time, and choose from any or all of our services.


Our certified and trained caregivers are all employees of Alternative Homemaking and not independent contractors. This ensures that your caregiver is fully covered with workers compensation,unemployment, and liability insurance. Some agencies use sub-contracted workers who are responsible for their own insurance.


Alternative Homemaking is a local and family-owned small business operating since 1987! We pride ourselves on our work with seniors and most especially our Veterans!
