Our team of health care professionals work with clients of all ages and their families to develop a traditional physician-directed (skilled) or client-directed (unskilled) care plan, or a mix of both if you qualify.
We offer our clients control over how and when they receive these services.
The IC also offers an excellent benefit package to caregivers who work 30 hours or more a week.
