Home Care Can Be Provided on an Hourly or Live-In Basis
To meet your loved one’s care needs, a home care aide can spend just a few hours or up to a full day with them. We can refer in-home caregivers for any schedule, though it can be more expensive on a per-hour basis to attract and retain quality caregivers for smaller shifts.
If extended care is needed, clients often ask about the pros and cons of live-in home health aides versus hourly shifts:
- Can be more economical
- Assistance is in the home 24/7
- Home must be suited for live-in
- Aide must be given adequate time to sleep
- Can be scheduled for waking hours or for round-the-clock coverage
with a second 12-hour shift overnight
- Caregiver working all hours they are on premise
- Home need not have additional living quarters
Whatever the situation, we can help. We have worked with families from all over the country providing them with home care solutions tailored to fit the specific needs of their loved ones in South Florida.
Boca Home Care Services focuses on keeping your family members and loved ones safe and secure in their own homes through our home health care services. The trusted partner for physicians and geriatric professionals in Palm Beach and Broward Counties, our priority is to ensure an individual’s ability to maximize their independence while at the same time remaining safe, secure and happy in their own home environment.

There was no way that I could have handled this.
You have been an amazing and outstanding person through all of this…
every arrangement you made to help my father was nothing short of the highest quality. My dad was extremely happy after Boca Home Care and Lillith and yourself came upon the scene and literally took charge. Be aware, there was no way that I could have handled this. Two of my colleagues have already asked me for your number as they have elderly parents in Florida. Many thanks again!
Boca Home Care Service has been invaluable to us.
Aide Vera is a lifesaver. She has made lots of efforts to keep me in the loop with many different issues…
My mom has been taken off several drugs and the effect is fabulous.
She is back to her old self! The Boca Home Care Services team has been invaluable to us. Please feel free to use me as a reference if you ever need.
My aide became part of my life.
Many thanks for assigning wonderful Jennifer M. as my home health aide. She not only cared for me, but was so kind and compassionate…
Aside from physically assisting me, she imparted helpful philosophical and psychological knowledge and always made me laugh when I felt like crying. She became part of my life.
Very caring and the best help one can have.
I wish to express my gratitude for the great service that you provided during my recent stay in Boca…
Also please express my thanks to the coordinators Ann, Millie and Adian. They also showed their professionalism on the day when I called them about a problem and they resolved it immediately and professionally. Ms. Hyacinth S, the aide that has taken care of me for my both recent stays is just nice, very caring and the best help one can have. Aide Monica (even though I only had her taking care of me for one week) turned out to be very capable, nice and caring.
This was the first time that I was not able to take care of my own basic needs.
Aide Yvonne is extremely competent, professional and experienced, and helped me both physically and mentally…
during my recovery from bilateral knee replacement surgery. Her skills are excellent and she is very compassionate. This was the first time that I was not able to take care of my own basic needs and she treated me with great respect. She was also very helpful in encouraging me to do my home physical therapy which was necessary for complete recuperation. My thanks to you and Boca Home Care Services. I will certainly recommend Boca Home Care Services to anyone who needs assistance.
I definitely did not want a big box company where my dad was just a number.
Working with the excellent team at Boca Home Care Services was seamless…
Dad went into the hospital and the case manager recommended them based on my specific qualifications. I definitely did not want a big box company where my dad was just a number. I spoke at length to Michelle and she guided me. One time I called, after hours, and Lisa, the owner picked up to address the upcoming schedule. Go figure, the owner was in. The service was great and dad rebounded quicker than his physicians had planned for. He’s back on the golf course and all is well again. Kudos the team at Boca Home Care. Highly recommended!
I would highly recommend Boca Home Care Services for your home care needs.
In 2015 my mother was discharged from Boca Raton Regional Hospital, launching a 7-year association…
with Boca Home Care Services. Millie did an AMAZING Job selecting a team of aides who eventually took care of my mother 24/7. She chose aides that I trusted IMPLICITLY (as I trust Brenda) to my mother’s care. Sheila was always a pleasure to deal with, ensuring that my mother’s long term care policy paid its fair share of the overwhelming cost burden. Finally, Natalie was always available as a manager, whenever issues arose and always administered necessary services overseeing the whole operation from billing to care. I would highly recommend Boca Home Care Services for your home care needs. My mother could not have reached 87 years of age without their team of caring professional providers.
Thank you, Lisa!
Lisa Kaufman was extremely responsive to my parents’ need for home care and was able to provide an aide on short notice…
Despite the fact that we could only agree to a very short-term engagement due to insurance considerations, she kindly came to my parents’ condo and patiently explained how things worked and filled out all necessary forms. I highly recommend her services. Thank you, Lisa!
Focused on the priorities of the patient.
I feel very fortunate to have been referred to Lisa Kaufman and her team at Boca Home Care Services…
Having interacted with other agencies enabled me to quickly realize how knowledgeable, experienced and genuinely interested Lisa was to address our needs. Our situation was a bit unusual and I greatly appreciated Lisa’s willingness to help me with achieving our goals rather than trying to revise them. Clearly this is an organization that embraces the tone at the top concept as virtually everyone on the BHCS team whom I had the opportunity to interact with was helpful, pleasant and professional. Particularly in such a sensitive personal services business, having the opportunity to collaborate with a group that is focused on the priorities of the patient’s team is critical in an effort to obtain the optimum results. I now look forward to paying it forward by having the opportunity to recommend Lisa Kaufman and BHCS to others who have the need for such services!
Boca Home Care Services is the care you need for your family members.
With all the confusion and stress that is associated with a parent getting older…
you shouldn’t make any decisions without Lisa at Boca Home Care Services. She not only helped with advice and concern but offered the most caring aides to help maintain my mom’s quality of life for years. Boca Home Care Services is an invaluable “friend” in home care. Even now Lisa continues to offer assistance in choosing a skilled nursing facility while still helping us get the right aides to help my mom in the day to day. Boca Home Care Services is both the love and care you need for your family members. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
This agency is amazing!!
I had tons of questions and concerns about my parents, and they were responsive and diligent and provided incredible service to us…
They have assisted me and my family in setting everything up, and I was so impressed with that, coupled with their sympathy and patience. I can highly recommend them to any family going through the difficult period of taking care of aging parents. They are the best. Thanks Boca Care! PS: Ask for Cheryl when you call them. She is the “411” of anything and everything in this world and I could not feel more safe and secure knowing she is my go-to person. Lucky to have her on your team.
Provide quality care, compassionate services and then some.

As a Care Manager for older adults and their families, I often refer to amazing professionals in the community… I feel grateful that I have had the opportunity to work closely with Lisa Kaufman, the owner of Boca Home Care Services.
