Helping Seniors Stay at Home

nursing handing man cup of tea

As we grow older, day-to-day activities can become increasingly more difficult to manage on our own. Many seniors prefer to continue living at home, but lack of mobility or strength can make daily activities challenging or unsafe. At NEILS, we believe in helping seniors retain as much independence as safely possible. Our professionally trained and licensed caregivers are experienced in helping people live a comfortable life at home.

NEILS Home Care Services make it possible for seniors to continue living at home while providing necessary assistance when needed. Some of the services provided with Home Care include:

Shopping and Errands

Leaving the house alone can be inconvenient, unsafe, or difficult for some seniors. NEILS Home Care Services offers shopping and errand services for people who need assistance buying groceries, home items, toiletries, essentials, and more. We will create a shopping schedule that works for you or your loved one to ensure we effectively meet the needs of each individual. Our shopping services can also provide much needed relief to caregivers.

Meal Preparation

Meal prep is available to seniors struggling to cook or prepare their own meals. Our custom meal prep plans focus on nutrition and are designed to meet the dietary restrictions of each individual. We’ll work together to create meals that seniors enjoy while providing essential vitamins and nutrients for a healthy lifestyle.

Cleaning Assistance

As a reminder from our previous blog post, “Let NEILS Assist You in Light Housekeeping”, light housekeeping duties through the NEILS Consumer-Directed Services and In-Home Services includes:


  • Clear sink of dirty dishes by loading them in dishwasher or hand washing
