Our Older Adults Need Help
They are going home quicker and sicker due to early hospital discharge and because they are choosing to age at home. They are calling on home care agencies to help make this possible. Because of their increased needs and complexities, the old way of doing homecare no longer works. The time has come for home care agencies to rise to the occasion by equipping and empowering caregivers to meet these challenges.
Here at ASQ, we are setting the Gold Standard in homecare by hiring individuals who have the heart of a caregiver and surrounding them with a team of experts to equip, empower, and educate them. We then send them to care for our older adults addressing their complex needs and providing them an extraordinary care experience.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What does Hourly Care include?
Hourly care is provided to your loved one on a schedule that reoccurs weekly based on the days and hours your loved one needs help.
What does a Live-In Care include?
Live-in care consists of a caregiver staying with your loved one and providing 13 hours of care per day. You are responsible for providing the caregiver with a comfortable place to sleep, access to a bathroom for their personal needs, and reasonable meals. The caregiver does not go home and takes up to three meal periods during the day and eight hours of rest per night.
What does Light Care include?
Light care is designed for a spouse or second older person living in your loved one's home who also requires care. Light care includes meal preparation, light housekeeping, and laundry for that second person. If more attention is needed for the second person, we will work with you to ensure the proper care is in place as a separate service.
