Alternative Homemaking with a Heart of SW Florida, LLC. is a licensed Home Health Agency that provides private duty, skilled home health nursing, personal care and in home nursing care, homemaker and companion services and respite care in your home, assisted living facility, nursing home or hospital. We develop a custom tailored care plan for each individual clients needs designed for senior care, elderly care, disabled and convalescing individuals throughout Charlotte County and Sarasota County in Florida.

We work with the client, guardian, or family members to design a home health care plan appropriate to the client's care and needs. This plan is based on specific information about the individual such as medications prescribed, treatment orders from the health care provider, our staff's observations, and your personal requests for care. As our client's needs change, so will the care plan.

Our RN's, LPN's, CNA's, Home Health Aides, Homemakers, and Companions are flexible and will perform needed care and services and in-home care wherever an individual resides, whether that be in his or her own home, with family members, in an assisted living facility, a nursing home, or even in a hospital. Many aging persons are frail and need personal senior care with common activities of daily living such as personal care, housekeeping, meal preparation, and transportation, while others suffer from loneliness and depression and simply benefit from the senior companion service of a trained caregiver or in home nurse. Others may need a custom tailored medical care and/or elderly care plan utilizing our skilled nursing care, bathing, medication setup and reminders. ALL WITH NO SERVICE CONTRACTS!!
