Gentle and Friendly Homecare for Your Loved One
With our many years of experience in the home care industry, we know and understand what it’s like to have an elderly loved one. As they’re getting older and weaker, you become more worried about their welfare and you look for solutions to the problem. But you have hurdles you can’t seem to overcome. You want them to live with you, but you may not have the space you need for such a living arrangement. Or you have to go to work and the same problem with their being alone surfaces once more. You may be hesitant about having them move to a nursing home. And in many cases, they may even stubbornly refuse to leave the house where they’ve raised their children and lived with their spouse.
Fortunately, you hear about how in Novato there is the Home Helpers Senior Home Care. And finally, you have the solution everyone can live with. Your elderly parent will be able to live in the home that holds so much meaning for them, and you can breathe more easily knowing that caregivers are there to provide the necessary assistance for your aging parent.
Home Care: Professionally Trained, Compassionate and Trustworthy Caregivers
For Home Helpers caregivers, the top priority is to see to it that your elderly parent maintains a high quality of life even at this late stage of their life. One important function we provide is to remind them to take their medications on schedule, but that’s not the extent of our services at all. We can do so much more because though we are professionals we also take care to act as friends.
So we don’t set the timetable of our visits in Novato. Instead, we will find the schedule that works best for your senior parent. We will look after them diligently, and we also take their health and frailty into account. So we will visit as friends do, with a warm greeting and an offer to help out with chores around the house. If your parent wants to cook, we will let them if they insist, but we will make sure that everything turns out alright. And if they find themselves too tired to keep up the chores, then we can do these things for your loved ones. It’s what friends do, and it’s a part of the job we don’t mind doing.

Novato is a city in northern Marin County, in the North Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area, in the U.S. state of California. As of the 2010 United States Census, its population was 51,904. Novato is located about 10 miles (16 km) northwest of San Rafael and about 30 miles (48 km) north of San Francisco on U.S. 101.
What is now Novato was originally the site of several Coast Miwok villages: Chokecherry, near downtown Novato, Puyuku, near Ignacio, and Olompali, at the present Olompali State Historic Park.
In 1839 the Mexican government granted the 8,876-acre (35.92 km2) Rancho Novato to Fernando Feliz. The rancho was named after a local Miwok leader who had probably been given the name of Saint Novatus at his baptism. Subsequently, four additional land grants were made in the area; Rancho Corte Madera de Novato to John Martin in 1839, Rancho San Jose to Ignacio Pacheco in 1840, Rancho Olompali awarded in 1843 to Camilo Ynitia, son of a Coast Miwok chief, and Rancho Nicasio, by far the largest at 56,621 acres (229.1 km2), awarded to Pablo de la Guerra and John B.R. Cooper in 1844. Novato, along with the rest of California, became part of the United States on February 2, 1848. Early pioneers included Joseph Sweetser and Francis De Long who bought 15,000 acres (61 km2) in the mid-1850s and planted orchards and vineyards.
