Our caregivers are there to provide both physical and emotional support to seniors. Clients and caregivers can enjoy a nice walk around Vasona Lake or stroll through downtown Los Gatos and window shop. Is your loved one passionate about wine or the arts? Our caregivers can go on a trip to the Byington Vineyard or Montalvo Arts Center with them.
