Qualified Caregivers Meet Your Everyday Needs

Our care aides and companions are Riverside employees, making them part of our state's largest non-government provider of services to older adults. They bring an extensive array of resources, along with coordination with other levels of care as needed. Most other home care providers can't duplicate that.

You will receive an exceptional level of care:

  • Staff are prescreened, insured and CPR certified.
  • Care aides hold either a PCA/Nurse Aide certificate or a CNA license.
  • Team members receive in-depth training in issues related to aging and home care.
  • Caregivers are on call around the clock to assist with any questions.

How to Get Started

To learn how you or a loved one can benefit from Riverside In-Home Private Care services, contact us at 757-534-6161. Our team will listen carefully to your needs and expectations, explain the process for beginning these specialized services and help create a care plan tailored to you or your loved one.

An essential first step is scheduling an in-home assessment, where our registered nurse will meet you to develop a care plan matching your needs with the right caregiver. There is a one-time assessment fee.
