In-Home Private Care Services

Sometimes you just need a helping hand. Riverside's In-Home Private Care program offers a comprehensive range of services designed for older adults, or any age client needing some extra assistance. We offer several levels of support, whether you are looking for companionship, help with activities of daily living or nursing assistance. Transportation support is also available. Our program is now serving the Peninsula, Williamsburg, York County and portions of Gloucester.

Why Riverside?

Our care aides and companions are Riverside employees, making them part of the largest nongovernment provider of services to older adults in our state. They bring an extensive array of resources, along with coordination with other levels of care if needed, that can’t be duplicated by most other providers of home care.

Whenever possible, Riverside makes every attempt to send the same aide or companion into the home. Over time, these individuals often develop close bonds with clients that make the experience feel more like a friend or family member stopping by to visit and then staying to help.

We offer an exceptional level of care:

  • All staff are prescreened, insured and CPR certified.
  • Care aides hold either a PCA/Nurse Aide certificate or CNA license.
  • Staff receives in-depth training in issues related to aging and home care.
  • Staff is on call around the clock to assist with any questions you may have.
  • Plus, no contract or agreement is required.

In-Home Private Care is an out-of-pocket expense. We work with long-term care insurance to satisfy all documentation needed for claims.
