Senior Citizen Shout-outs!
Welcome to Elder Care Services
My promise to you is that you will leave our office with an answer, a plan, or a connection to reach the goal that brought you to us in the first place!
We are Dedicated to Our Mission
We are dedicated to the care of older adults and to those who care for them. We know the rewards and challenges of senior home care and are grateful and honored to have been able to assist so many wonderful people over the years.
Elder Care Services has been dedicated to helping seniors as well as those who are concerned for or directly responsible for their care throughout DeKalb County since 1988. We understand that this type of care is special and that the people involved, whether the care giver or the receiver, are special as well, and have unique needs.
We are committed to providing education, support, resources, and hands-on involvement to the older adult or those who care for them. Whether you are looking to find care for mom or dad or curious about senior services, give us a call or email us. We can help.
