Home Care

Choosing Home Care for yourself or a loved one can be a difficult decision. Aside from the usual questions about the length and type of care that is needed, most families have a deeper concern: whom can they trust?

At Family & Children’s Service, we know that trust is an important part of our services. For over a century, we have been an essential and reliable community resource for individuals and families who need a helping hand.  Our Home Care Services helps hundreds of individuals remain at home, or return home sooner while recovering from illness, surgery or other medical conditions, to enjoy the comfort of their own home. We provide Certified Home Health Aides (CHHAs) and supportive care aides (companions) in private homes, assisted living facilities and other settings throughout Monmouth County.

FCS is a New Jersey State licensed and CAHC accredited Home Care Agency serving Monmouth County. Our professional and dedicated staff is committed to the care and well being of our clients. We work closely with individuals, families, medical professionals and referral agencies to develop a personal plan of care for each client. Whether a client requires just a few hours of care each week, or round the clock attention, we are here to help.
