About Hands and Hearts Home Care
We are the people you can trust with your loved ones.
Audrey Volonis along with James Moore founded Hands and Hearts Home Care in 2008 in order to provide a much-needed service for senior citizens. We have worked tirelessly to provide the highest quality home care available to allow seniors to age comfortably in their own homes. We have formed many lasting relationships with health providers, rehabilitation facilities, hospice and nursing homes among many other skilled colleagues in the industry so that Hands and Hearts Home Care is able to coordinate the care necessary for healthy and gratifying living in a familiar environment.
Our staff has had training through multiple courses dedicated to senior care through the USC Arnold School of Public Health with an emphasis in dementia, Alzheimer’s care, arthritis patients as well as many others. As a result we have worked closely with families to help educate and comfort families while undergoing the process to better understand the many chronic illnesses that affect seniors.
Our first priority to find the right fit for your loved ones to make the transition to an improved quality of life as seamless as possible. There is nothing more satisfying than the relief that comes from knowing your loved one is in caring and well qualified hands. We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you and your family into ours.
