Hear What Our Clients Have To Say
Antoinette has been wonderful to my mother, Alice W. . I don't know what we would do without her. My Mother's health has been improving due in no small part to Antoinette's care. I feel completely confident in having her here with my parents. It is just so good not to have to worry while she is here.
Val is really quite careful about so many things and if I call her, she comes to help me right away. And she is very patient. I am very grateful for that and really very satisfied with the care. Many people have commented how much happier I seem now. And that certainly makes me feel good too. Having Val has made a big difference.
I just want to say 'Wow'. My mother's face lit up when she saw Selma. I couldn't have imagined a better fit. You've just taken my breath away.
Dad and I enjoyed meeting with you ( Shawna ,HTHC care-coordinator). We feel like we made a new friend in addition to getting our questions answered. We have decided to go with Human Touch. The time you took with us and your genuine care and concern made it a much easier decision.
Regina is exceptional in every way shape or form. She has a rare quality of being able to think of my uncle’s needs and my needs as a family caregiver. She is thoughtful and communicates very well with me. My uncle has improved dramatically since she has been taking care of him. I feel blessed to have Regina as a caregiver.
Human Touch has been wonderful. I was so worried about my husband [being cared for, knowing I would be in the hospital] and Human Touch Home Care really came through for me. All the ladies you have referred have been very nice and well qualified.
Selma is an outstanding caregiver. She is smart, capable, and willing to provide whatever help is needed. We are extremely happy.
We love Marie (the Human Touch Home Care referred caregiver) and want to keep her forever. She provides wonderful care and companionship. We laugh together and our life is much less stressful because of the help she provides.
Hyacinth is a beautiful person. Before she came I was lonely and scared, but now that she is with me I am safe and I feel confident. And she fixes me delicious meals.
Human Touch Home Care provides such a wonderful service. I know my mother is in good hands because every caregiver you have referred to us has been excellent.
We are delighted with the care provided by Irene. She is excellent in everything she does and in an emergency is calm and effective. We are pleased with all the Caregivers who help my parents. They are a wonderful team.
I will refer Human Touch to anyone who needs help. You guys are the best.
Doreen is a terrific Caregiver and possesses all the qualities you could ask for. She has a good heart, is scrupulously honest and provides wonderful care.

Are the Caregivers referred through your company bonded?
Yes. All caregivers are bonded and insured. But it is our multi-step proprietary screening process of all prospective Caregivers which is the best possible guarantee that the Caregivers referred through Human Touch Home Care are honest, caring and capable.
How do I know a company is a good one?
Any company you consider should be licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, which means it conforms to State regulations designed to protect the safety of all consumers of in-home care.
How long has the home care company been in business?
This is important because it takes time and skill to find qualified caregivers and gain the trust of a diverse health care community. Be sure to visit the website of any company you are considering. Human Touch Home Care, Ltd. was founded in 2005, and has built its reputation by referring only the most honest, caring and competent Caregivers. Our website includes many testimonials from thankful families who feel fortunate for the help their loved ones have received through the HTHC registry. Their words are powerful endorsements.
What is the cost of care?
Prices vary greatly from company to company, even among those providing the same type of services. Our basic hourly rate is $14.50 (our clients pay $11.25 per hour directly to the Caregiver and $3.25 separately to the HTHC) for any shift of four or more hours. This rate remains the same whether the shift is at night or on the weekend. Our live-in rate for the care of one individual is $143 per day. Because we are not a franchise and pay no fees to a larger corporation, we are able to provide first-rate service for an incredibly low price. HTHC referred caregivers are paid more than many others and this gives us an advantage when seeking the best caregivers for our clients.
What are the qualifications and experience of your office staff?
Our care coordinators work with clients, families, Caregivers and other professionals in the community. They are knowledgeable and have the ability to identify which Caregivers’ skills and personality will be an excellent match for a given client. Being able to adapt to the changing needs of numerous clients on a daily basis requires resourcefulness, flexibility, genuine respect for others, and strong problem solving skills. Each of our HTHC staff is highly educated and well trained. The combined experience of our owner and general manager totals over 35 years.
What if I have long term care insurance?
Your insurance company can be an excellent resource. They will communicate with you and the care provider to insure that you receive the best care possible. HTHC works closely with some of the most respected long-term care insurance companies in the region and our staff can assist in finding out what criteria an insurance company uses to determine whether a policy holder will be eligible for benefits. Since these companies have the option of working with only the best home care companies, their confidence in us is more evidence that we deserve your trust.
