Temporary In-Home Care Services

A senior woman receives home care.  Learn about temporary home care services available through Georgetown Home Care.

Temporary in-home care services are the ultimate resource for adults and seniors requiring very occasional or one-time-only assistance to remain at home or safely navigate their community.

All of the short-term or temporary in-home care services offered by Georgetown Home Care are provided by licensed, experienced, and highly-trained caregivers.

Customized In-Home Personal Care Services

Home care services come in all shapes and sizes, which makes them entirely customizable to clients, or their family’s, needs.

Welcome Home Program

Getting comfortably settled, with everything you need in accessible proximity is essential for healing and reducing the risk of hospital readmission.

Our Welcome Home Program is available to any adults who live alone or need assistance while transitioning from a hospital stay or surgical procedure back into the home.

Respite Care

There is bound to be a time when a regular caregiver needs time off to attend an appointment, a special event, or to take an extended weekend or week-long vacation. That is when respite care comes into play.

Respite care services provide licensed, qualified caregivers you can trust. The services include anything under the companion or personal care services list, excluding any services that fall into the home health care umbrella.

Best of all, respite care services are available for a handful of hours, or several weeks at a time, depending on the client’s needs.

Transportation

While DC and the metro area offers a range of public transportation, it is not easy to navigate if you need assistance of any kind. And, of course, parking is always at a premium. That’s why we offer a variety of options for transportation assistance. One of those options is our partnership with Uber Health to provide senior transportation services.

With their support, we assist adults to and from their scheduled calendar dates accompanied by a licensed caregiver who helps the client transfer safely in/out of the home and vehicle. 

Our caregivers are happy to wait or can accompany the client wherever s/he needs to be, and back home again. Our caregivers will supply their own car for transportation, however, the client may provide their own car for use if they prefer. Transportation services require a four-hour minimum shift.

Companionship Care

For seniors, the familiarity of a regular visitor and routine social interaction can be a crucial factor in their quality of life. Our companion care includes being available for conversation, to share a meal, to go to the theater, or simply be a listening ear for your loved one as they share their challenges, experiences, and memories.
