Aging isn’t a choice, but how we age is. If you or your loved one wants to live independently in the current residence, scheduling the support you need before you need it is critical for long-term success.
Aldersgate At Home services are life-changing for people who need assistance or live alone. It also gives full-time caregivers a much-needed break. And it reduces worry and stress on friends and family members. Everybody wins.
Aldersgate At Home Services is a private pay organization. But often, long-term care insurance can cover our services.
Aldersgate At Home operates seven days a week. Hours vary depending on your individual needs. There’s a consecutive four-hour minimum for clients not residing on the Aldersgate campus, and we can also provide coverage 24 hours a day if needed.
For full-time caregivers looking for respite care to get out for a day, take a vacation or have surgery, it’s perfect.
Aldersgate was named “Best Assisted Living” in 2019 and 2020 by the Charlotte Observer, we also receive top ratings from Medicare.gov and “Best Nursing Homes” by U.S. News & World Reports. From that foundation of excellence, we created Aldersgate At Home. Now off-campus clients can access the same high-quality supportive care from Certified Nursing Aides that Aldersgate residents enjoy.
Aldersgate At Home recognizes the emotional, physical, and mental challenges of caregiving. When a spouse, family member or friend provides daily care, it can take a toll. Adding a respite care break once a week, even for as little as four hours, can make a huge difference.
We’ll design a respite care plan that works for you and your loved one. Longer breaks—a full weekend or up to several weeks—can accommodate family trips or surgery. From meeting friends or family for lunch, attending a class or support group, having surgery or visiting the doctor, breaks can prove vital to a caregiver’s long-term well-being.
Because we also are caregivers, we understand your love and commitment in your service to a loved one. Our respite care services deliver the peace of mind of a well-trained, highly qualified caregiver attending to your loved one.
If you’re a caregiver, the first step is to take care of yourself and recognize you have needs too.

Those in the process of passing can do so comfortably—surrounded by family and friends—in their own home. We help clients and their families during these difficult times with one-on-one, 24-hour care from a Certified Nursing Aide. Plus, we partner with hospice and palliative care organizations to coordinate the best plan for a comfortable transition that honors your loved one’s wishes.
The last thing anyone wants is a new person in their home who doesn’t understand them. Our onboarding process for Aldersgate At Home health services is extensive so we can satisfy your needs. We get to know our clients’ personal preferences—what they love and any pet peeves. Our Client Care Coordinator will visit with you via telephone, web meeting and a home visit to get started and discuss whether you’re interested in health services, personal assistance or both.
