The registered nurse and social worker utilize a holistic approach to determine all needs. Whether you are a local or long-distance caregiver or someone in need of services, we are here to help you.
Is Care Solutions right for you?
Take our quiz:
- My loved one has needs, but I do not know where to turn for help. Yes or No?

Are you now caring for the people who took care of you?
My elderly father moved to North Carolina and as he aged, his health care needs increased. His ability to manage his own day to day needs (such as taking all his medications correctly) diminished. My ability to help him was limited by geography (I live 1000 miles distant). Once, when he was hospitalized, the hospital social worker told us about Care Solutions. Care Solutions provided us with a nurse to be our "eyes on the ground" for my father's health care needs. She set up his medications, arranged and coordinated doctor's visits and worked with his other caregivers. As his needs increased, she kept me informed, offering suggestions, and support. Her familiarity with the local health care system was invaluable as he needed more and more assistance and skilled care. Best of all, she and my father genuinely respected each other. Thank you, Care Solutions. I don't know how I could have managed his long-distance needs without you. - - - Quote from out-of-town caregiver
