Home Care Resources

You've likely heard the saying "It takes a village to raise a child." But as we get older it still helps to have the resources of a village available to us. We at Granny NANNIES share in this philosophy with our belief in "Helping Hand" care.

At-home care isn't just about the private duty caregiver responsible for your loved one. Quality in-home care stems from a well-rounded complete package… a home healthcare agency that provides assistance beyond your front door.

The home healthcare resources below are intended to provide you with an easy way to get additional professional answers & help with caring for your loved one. Remember you can always pick up the phone and call one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff at Granny NANNIES.

Each Granny NANNIES location is independently owned and operated. Granny NANNIES Licensing Group, LLC and its affiliates do not control or manage the day-to-day business operations of any Granny NANNIES licensed locations. Each location chooses to operate one of two different types of business models. Some locations are providers of home care. These locations employ the care providers who provide home care for their clients. Other locations are care-provider referral services. These locations help match clients seeking a home care provider with pre-background-screened, pre-credential-verified care providers who operate independently and are not employees of the location. This business model supports consumer-directed home care, where the consumer determines all aspects of a home-care arrangement. You should contact a Granny NANNIES location directly to confirm the type of business model it operates.
