About SimplyHome
We are an affiliation of care providers who have been providing supports for the disabled and elderly since 1990. While our goal of helping families and caregivers has remained the same from the beginning, we realized in 2003 that new technology would allow us to dramatically improve the quality of our service and reduce the cost to those in need. We developed the SimplyHome system with this in mind and have been expanding our offerings and services ever since. Today we work towards our mission of helping the aging and disabled populations nationwide from our offices in North Carolina and Wisconsin. We exist to serve families and caregivers by providing the tools and services needed to support those who wish to live independently at home. While this desire cannot always be fulfilled, we believe it is far more achievable with SimplyHome by your side. In essence, we help you create a "Supportive Home" environment for the one you care for by providing easy-to-use assistive technology and services. When you come to us, we will engage in a conversation about your caregiving requirements, and if appropriate, offer you a personalized system that improves the quality of care for both you and the one you care for -- whether you are a family member or professional caregiver. Sometimes, after a detailed assessment, we find our systems are not the best support for you. If we feel a company offering different services could better serve you, we will make that recommendation. It's as simple as that.
