ABOUT DEPENDABLE HOME HEALTH CARE
Dependable Home Health Care was founded in 1991 by two parents who had a need for their eldest son. Since then, we still strive to support individuals with a variety of disabilities in finding housing and work that is meaningful to them. Some of them need 24/7 care while others need assistance a few hours each week to help increase independence with daily activities. From the beginning, we have always held strong to our values: be kind, be innovative, act as community connectors, be good ambassadors, and always be people-centered.
These values are not just for our clients but for our employees! We want to treat our team respectfully and as if they were our own family. We welcome ideas and value each employee as an individual. Our family atmosphere allows us to provide the best care for both our team and those we support. If you are searching for a company that helps you to find purpose and fulfillment while giving you the opportunity to spend your time helping others find joy, look no further!
