The True Continuum of Care
We offer multiple services to patients in the eldercare sphere—home health, home care, residential care, hospice, and transportation.
Parentis Health is the only company that offers these coordinated care services under one roof, providing a more cohesive experience for seniors and their families.
From home care visits through hospice, prices are kept reasonable and clear; dedicated Parentis Health professionals can also facilitate Medicare and insurance billing to support your decision-making process. This unique, full-circle, continuity of care model simplifies the process, empowering families while keeping costs under control—even when circumstances and patient needs change.
By putting patients first—and cutting out all of the extra steps and healthcare providers—Parentis Health enables families to provide the best possible care for their loved ones.
A Team You Can Trust
At Parentis Health, we understand that when it comes to your loved ones, trust is essential.
—because if we’re not helping families, we don’t deserve your trust.
