    About My Business
    We offer home care, care management and concierge services to elderly clients who are aging in place or otherwise want to remain as independent as possible. We offer an incredibly wide variety of services to achieve this goal, essentially everything their families would do if they lived nearby and had plenty of available time.

    We are a small agency and rely on employees, not subcontractors, to handle personal care and other support. A large part of our service is care management and supporting the family as a whole.

    Conditions I Am Unable To Treat
    We are not Medicare certified so we are not limited by those requirements. We are privately owned and managed so we can decide what services we offer and how those services are provided. We also have the authority to adjust rates and schedules in a way that enhances the support and reduces costs.
    Experience And Credentials
    Extended Family is a small "boutique" agency owned and operated by a married couple, Michael and Victoria Abend. The staff is small and reachable 24/7, holidays included.
    We specialize in quality and customized support and are able to do so because we limit our client count to 40 or fewer and do not take on cases where the client lives more than 20 minutes from our office. This ensures responsiveness and personalized services.
    Fees And Payment Sources Accepted
    We are private pay and do not accept Medicare or Medicaid payments. We are a licensed and approved agency for long-term care insurers who reimburse clients for their out of pocket costs. Our rates vary but we generally charge $27/hour for companion/homemaker support, $31/hour for nursing assistant support, and $80/hour for care management and nursing involvement. We offer significant discounts for clients receiving ongoing services or a high number of hours and typically the care management and nursing support is provided at no charge for these clients as well. We work hard to make things easier for clients by simplifying the invoicing in this way.

    Hours of Service
    We offer 24/7 care as well as fewer hours. Some clients receive only a few hours per week on an as needed or scheduled basis. We do respond to last minute calls but typically we prefer to schedule services to improve the quality of care and support.
