Miami Dade County Home Care Program is licensed by the state of Florida to provide homemaker and companion services. Their HCS license number is 4997.
Miami Dade County Home Care Program employs individuals to do household chores and provide companionship to the elderly and adults with disabilities. HCS providers cannot provide hands-on personal care, however, they can verbally prompt your loved one to bathe and get dressed. Homemakers and companions can perform tasks such as cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, and escorting your loved one to medical appointments and other outings. In addition, they are permitted to assist with combing or brushing hair, applying make-up, and polishing nails. This type of agency is ideal for a loved one who is independently mobile and is able to perform their own personal hygiene tasks.
