Always at Home
Providing in-home care for 20 years in Western, PA
Always at Home is a local business based in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. We have over 20 years of experience in providing in-home care in Western Pennsylvania. Our goal at Always at Home is simple: Peace of Mind regarding the care of your family member. We accomplish this by allowing your family member to remain in his/her home environment while obtaining the companionship he/she needs to assist with their daily tasks.
The Always at Home staff are Non-Medical CareGivers. They act as a friend to your family member. The CareGiver works as an addition to the family, assuming the tasks, care and companionship that family members are unable to provide due to geographic constraints or other obligations.
Here is a sample of some of the services that are offered by Always at Home CareGivers:
And Many More!
Our CareGiver team is a special group of trained individuals. Each CareGiver has successfully completed a thorough reference and criminal background check, and has been interviewed by our staff. Each CareGiver is bonded and insured by Always at Home, and they are trained on items that cover the most practical situations and topics encountered in elder care giving.
How do you know that a family member may need some assistance? Here are a few of the common symptoms:
- Inadequate Meals and Nutrition
- Unopened or Unpaid Bills
- Recurring Memory Lapses
- Frequent Falls
- Unsafe Driving
- Lack of Interest
- Change in Behavioral Patterns
- Clues in Conversation

The services offered by Always at Home address these symptoms by providing your family member with an in-home companion for as much or as little time as you need the assistance during the day.
