About Us

Harmony Home Care operates on the belief that a home care agency should create an exceptional experience for its clients. At our core is the ability to hire caregivers who have both the requisite skills for in-home care and a demonstrated passion for supporting others. We cast a wide net to find the right people for this field. And our multi-phase screening process gives us the confidence to match our caregiving staff with our clients who have a diverse set of needs.

Creating a client experience that lives up to our name requires a lot of coordination and good communication. You’ll always be able to access our client services team, as well as our nursing & clinical staff. Together, they can help you resolve countless issues related to your home care services and overall long-term care needs.

Our Story

You can expect our clinical and administrative staff to be kind, professional, and always willing to help.

Our People Process

To work with Harmony, our caregivers must show us that they have a passion for supporting others.



All of our caregivers providing personal care are trained as either Home Health Aides (HHAs) or Personal Care Aides (PCAs). They have received their training from an approved Home Health Aide Training Program (HHATP) or Personal Care Aide Training Program (PCATP). In addition, they undergo a rigorous screening process that includes personal interviews, professional references, drug screening, fingerprinting, work authorization, and an agency orientation to make sure their skills have been maintained.

The Match

We understand that the chemistry between a client and a caregiver is one of the most important aspects of in-home care. Accordingly, our staffing and client services teams work diligently to select the right caregiver for each of our clients. Personality factors, life experiences, and professional skills all play a role in the matchmaking process.


To work with Harmony, our caregivers must show us that they have a passion for supporting others.
