Did you know: Your loved one can get compensated for your care without having to take on extra jobs.

With Elite Choice you can get the care you deserve with peace of mind.

"The staff at Elite Choice are well trained to give each client the attention to details that makes such a huge difference. I referred a client to Elite Choice who is nearly 94 years old and needed some extra assistance. She now continues to live independently with a renewed sense of wellbeing thanks to the support that Elite Choice has provided her with."

Coordinator, Health Home Care

"I was living and working far away from my Dad and I couldn’t be there for him. Now that he joined Elite Choice, I moved in with him and we spend the day together. Now, I can really be there for him and still pay all my bills."

"As my Mom needed more help at home, she resisted getting an aide because she was afraid of people rifling through her belongings. When she heard she could hire her own caregiver and it could be me and my sister, her wish came true."
