Our Mission of Service

The Visiting HomeCare Service was founded in 1966 by local volunteers who saw the need for a service to help their neighbors remain safely and comfortably in their own homes in time of illness, convalescence, disability and frailty. Our mission remains the same today to provide that help to any county resident who needs it, regardless of their ability to pay.
