All of us like to think we will be able to live 100% independently without assistance for our whole life. But the fact is, as we age, most of us reach a point where it becomes difficult or even impossible to perform even some of the most basic daily tasks.
When that time comes, you don't necessarily have to give up your home. And if your elderly Mom, Dad, or other loved one is getting to the point he or she needs in-home care, you don't necessarily have to end your career or let your other obligations go unfulfilled in order to care for him/her.
At Mom's Home Care, we provide you with a convenient, affordable way to get your loved high quality non-medical home care in Encino, CA, and surrounding neighborhoods and throughout L.A. and Southern California.
We can provide you with exactly the type of home care services you need, either permanently, temporarily, or on an on-call basis. We understand how difficult it can be to watch a loved one age and struggle to take care of tasks they once did with ease; and we understand also that not everyone has the time or the ability to provide fully satisfactory care to their elderly Mom or Dad on a continual basis.
Mom's Home Care steps in to fill in the gap with highly trained, fully screened and reliable, professional home care staff who will customize a care plan for each and every client.
Mom's Home Care is a state-licensed home care agency and has been a trusted senior services provider for over thirty years (since 1997). If you need home care services for yourself or a loved one, or if you want to inquire further about our services, do not hesitate to contact us today by calling 323-244-4789!
We provide free, no obligation in-home interviews to help you make an informed decision.
When Should I Call Mom's Home Care for Help?
Maybe you're considering getting homer care services for yourself or for someone you love, but you're not exactly sure yet. You may be asking, "How do I know when it's time? And who exactly would benefit most from home care services provided by Mom's Home Care?"
Generally, we can answer that anyone who has significant need of help with performing daily life tasks or who has need of occasional or on-call nursing care, is a good candidate for our services.
Getting more specific, Mom's Home Care is a great option for anyone recovering from an illness, health condition, or recent hospitalization; for those with chronic illnesses; for patients who are terminally ill and want to remain at home for their final days; for those suffering from dementia, Alzheimer's, or other similar conditions; for anyone at high risk of a slip and fall accident if left home alone; and for anyone who needs a care taker to run errands, do house chores, cook meals, or provide basic personal care.
And even if you or someone else are the main care taker for your loved one, there may be times the regular care taker needs a break or has to attend to other matters. Mom's Home Care can help with that too.
We are there for you or your loved one to make things safer, healthier, and more convenient, be it permanently, temporarily, or on an on call basis!
Why Choose Us?
When those who have been there for you throughout life finally enter their "golden years" and need help, it's time for you to be there for them as well. That can't always mean your being present yourself physically 24/7. In many cases, it will involve to one degree or another, use of professional home care services like what we provide here at Mom's Home Care.
At Mom's Home Care, we provide all manner of non-medical home health care services to the people of Encino, Los Angeles, and beyond. We have decades of experience, a name you can trust, and a staff full of highly skilled, compassionate care takers. We have been caring for the elderly of Southern California for decades, and we stand ready to provide the same great services to you.
We invite you to look us up by our state license number (194700009) at the California Department of Social Services Home Care Bureau, to see our BBB rating, or to check out our online reviews by past and current clients. We are confident you will be satisfied with our credentials and we have nothing to hide.
Another reason to opt for Mom's Home Care over the competition is that we are very careful about how we hire our staff. We hire only the most qualified, highly trained candidates - people we would feel comfortable entrusting our own elderly parents to.
We look for a genuine concern for the client along with skill and educational achievement. And we also run a background check on each new hire and put them through a thorough screening process. Anyone who will need to run errands for or transport our clients must also have a good driving record and valid current California driver's license.
Finally, we also cover all our employees with our own general liability insurance and workers comp policy. We do not leave you with any of the liability or risk-taking.
We also use cutting-edge technologies to monitor our care takers and have them clock in and out online. We know if a care taker is late, and we send out an urgent alert to get you another care taker if your scheduled one is so much as 10 minutes off schedule.
Our staff keeps track of how each client is doing in careful, thorough records. And we let you know how things are going as well and give you access to all pertinent information. We always communicate with you promptly if there are any significant developments so you will remain well informed on your loved one's progress.

At Mom's Home Care, we do everything possible to make it fast and simple for new clients to get started receiving our services.
You can contact us by calling 323-244-4789 if you want to learn more about who we are and what we do, or to set up a free, no-obligation, in-home consultation with one of our experienced staff members.
And we also are always ready to answer your emergency calls for help - you can call us anytime 24/7 for emergency care and we can find a care taker off our extensive database if there isn't one free on hand at the moment. We fully understand that you "can't schedule emergencies."
As soon as you begin receiving our services, we can establish a customized plan of care for you or your loved one. And you can always contact us to change that plan of care if/when you need to.
Also, at Mom's Home Care, we have an innovative "Family Room" where you can come in and quickly view the details of how your loved one is being cared for. It is all charted out in the Family Room in public view.
Finally, we also offer all new clients a 10% discount on the first two weeks of services. (Note that this offer only applies if you continue services for a month or longer and at the rate of 6 hours per day for 3 days per week or more, and it does not include hospice care.)
Our Offered Services
To learn more detailed information about each of our various service areas, you can visit our individual service pages on this website. And this is not an exhaustive list of our offered services. Plus, we are flexible to meet client needs in any way possible.
However, here is a basic overview of our 7 most commonly provided elderly care services:
Simple companionship is one of the most basic of all human needs. And for the elderly, the risk of dementia, Alzheimer's, and other similar conditions increases significantly without day to day social interactions. So it's not merely a matter of aging and hereditary predisposition.
At Mom's Home Care, one of things we provide for our clients is social interaction. This can mean conversing, playing board games, watching television together, eating together, going shopping, and more. We provide your loved one with needful social support and help keep his/her mind active and engaged.
Errands & Shopping
As we age, we often lose the ability to safely drive an automobile, and we may not even be able to walk safely to/from the store or other close destination in the neighborhood.
That's why we at Mom's Home Care include errand-running and grocery and other shopping on our list of services. Be it running a letter to the post office, picking up food to-go at a restaurant, or a host of other errands, we can take care of it!
As we get older, basic areas of personal care like taking a bath or shower, getting dressed, brushing our hair, or brushing our teeth become more and more difficult. And yet, keeping up appearances and good hygiene demand that these things be done on a daily basis.
Mom's Home Care care takers are thoroughly and specifically trained to take care of all these and other personal care needs for our clients. And we know how to do it in a respectful and yet adequate and reliable way.
While it's an unpleasant subject we may wish to avoid thinking about, the fact is that elderly people often need special assistance in toileting.
At Mom's Home Care we understand the embarrassment and frustration this situation can bring. We take a "matter of fact" approach to it and simply do what needs to be done.
If there is a need to adjust the toileting environment, such as by installing grip rails or adjusting the toilet height, we can assess it and get it taken care of. And we can also assess which toileting options are best for each client and take steps to deal with all the various types of incontinence.
Cleaning the house becomes a major chore for many who are elderly and have limited strength to expend each day. Simple tasks like taking out the garbage, walking the dog, vacuuming, sweeping, and mopping may be more than your loved one can handle.
If so, we at Mom's Home Care can provide housekeeping services for your elderly Mom or Dad. We can handle all household cleaning tasks and keep the home environment clean and healthy.
Meal preparation is one of the biggest needs of many of our elderly clients. Cooking is a difficult chore for them, but we can help.
Mom's Home Care care takers can ensure your loved one gets good nourishment and nutrition and follows any special diet he/she may be on. We can manage his/her menu and monitor his/her diet and health.
Mom's Home Care provides only non-medical care, but we do handle medication reminders and management for our clients.
We can maintain your loved one's pill box, document the dispensing of the medications, and if necessary note any side effects that might occur.
Live-in VS On-call Care
For any and all of our services, we can provide all-day, part of the day, or on-call care as needed. And you can use our services on a temporary or long term basis. It's 100% up to you.
We at Mom's Home Care stand ready to assist you and your loved one in numerous areas of daily living and non-medical home health care services.
We are flexible to your needs and will work with you to find what works best for you.
