Progressive Personal Assistance that Matters.
It’s very often the case that a person’s health, safety, and comfort at home is less about medication, nursing, and therapy and more about competent assistance with the daily tasks that affect health.
Progressive Home Health Agency creates customized care plans that focus specifically on non-medical, daily support for retirees, disabled adults, or people with dementia.
Progressive’s Personal Assistance Services can be instrumental in protecting an adult’s independence and quality of life while helping people avoid nursing homes and other institutionalization.
