Mountaineer Home Care Services LLC
Our Homemaker Services are designed to assist seniors, disabled adults, and the elderly with completing daily tasks around the home and in the community in order to promote independent living. While everyone enjoys a clean home, for many of the aged and those with certain serious medical conditions, keeping a home tidy and attending to many of the essential activities of daily living are simply not possible. In many cases, our services can help families avoid placing their loved ones into a nursing home or long-term care facility. At Mountaineer Home Care Services LLC, we provide the extra help necessary to allow your loved one maintain his or her independence while remaining safe and happy at home.
Making Personal Independence a Reality for Seniors

There is a better way. As a leading provider of in-home care, Mountaineer Home Care Services LLC provides skilled In-Home Care Providers who lend a helping hand so that older adults are able to live well in the comfort of home.
