About Home Helpers
Home Helpers and Direct Link of Southern Maine is a locally owned and operated home care company which specializes in Making Life Easier and offering Help at the Touch of a Button. We offer services to seniors, new moms, working parents, or those recently recovering from a recent surgery, illness, or injury.
Home Helpers services include companionship, housekeeping, transportation, and personal care to promote our clients’ independence and safety while residing in the comfort of their own home and by continuing to live as active community members. Our caring and compassionate caregivers are employees, not subcontractors, who are thoroughly screened and insured by workers’ compensation and unemployment to ensure you and your loved ones are fully protected.
We also offer Direct Link® In-Home Emergency Monitoring Systems: Direct Link offers a Personal Emergency Response System (PERS), which allows customers to reach help 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Direct Link also offers an automated medication dispenser. If a dose of medication is not taken, the Care Center will call to remind the client or notify emergency contacts of their client’s delinquency.
