What We Do

We help seniors and older adults with non-medical activities of daily living including meal preparation, assistance with bathing, dressing, toileting, light housekeeping, medication reminders, transportation and much more. Care and companionship are available on an hourly or a live-in basis. We are the experts when it comes to 24 hour live-in care.

Not All Home Care Agencies are Alike

There are many Home Care providers, but when families want only the highest quality of care for a loved one, they choose Home Care Assistance. Highly recommended by medical professionals, our proprietary science-based approach promotes healthy activity, stress reduction and social interaction for older adults.

Ensuring the Safety of Your Loved One

All of our caregivers must go through a rigorous screening process including a criminal background investigation and a psychological test. Home Care Assistance has a reputation for hiring only the highest caliber of caregivers who apply for a job. For caregivers to work with Home Care Assistance, they must demonstrate compassion, professionalism and dedication to elderly seniors through prior work experience.

Dedicated Team of Care Experts

To ensure that we NEVER fall short of delivering the highest quality of care, your loved one's care is administered by a committed team of care management professionals including caregivers of the highest caliber, an expert care manager and a dedicated back office staff 24 hours a day 7 days a week. You never have to worry about caregivers missing a day, reaching us after hours or requesting last minute schedule changes.

The Highest Caliber Caregivers

Unless caregivers are highly trained and educated, compassion and commitment alone are not enough to deliver exceptional care. We learned that from day one and quickly responded by starting the Home Care University, a first of its kind in the senior care industry. We are delighted to share that our extensive training has made a life changing impact on both our caregivers and the senior clients they serve.

Care for Advanced Illnesses

Caring for an elderly adult with a chronic illness requires specialized training and experience. Our caregivers are expertly trained to provide care to seniors dealing with Dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, stroke and cancer. We also offer specialized care for post-hospitalization recovery and end of life hospice support.

Client Testimonials

"I highly recommend Home Care Assistance of Portland Maine. This summer I needed caregiver assistance for a family member at our home in the Boothbay region. Sue Arsenault, Owner and Client Care Manager of HCA of Portland, visited our home, accurately assessed my needs, and selected exactly the right caregiver to stay at our home when I had to travel over several days on several occasions. HCA of Portland also provided in-home assistance when I was also at home. Sue followed up after each caregiver visit. She was a also a very helpful resource for me as I continue my role as primary caregiver."

Charles and Virgina Cawley Satisfied Clients
"I am writing to you, to thank you so much for your valued employee, Scott who helped my father in-law last year before he passed away. My mother in-law was hospitalized for over three months with an extended stay in a Rehabilitation facility before returning home. Scott coordinated time with his visiting nurses, Occupational and Physical Therapy visits. He was our ears, eyes and event manager during the day while my husband and I managed our dependent children, home and careers. On several occasions, he even drove my father in-law to the Emergency Room at Maine Medical Center, provided transportation to doctor’s office visits, visits with his wife at the hospital and rehabilitation facility, cooked meals and was a friend. I would not hesitate to recommend your organization and your excellent caregiver in the future."
