About Us

Human Touch Home Care, Ltd. was established in 2005. Company founder, Bess Wray, knew that a great majority of seniors wanted to remain in their own homes as they aged and that they could do this with a good support system. Building caring relationships is a key part of the company’s philosophy and its mission, "to empower our clients in their pursuit of safe, happy lives at home." With this in mind, Bess set out to build a registry of the most competent, dedicated, and carefully screened caregivers to assist her clients. The caregivers referred through the Human Touch registry help with non-medical in-home care. They assist their clients with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, and transferring; they fix meals, do the laundry, and make sure their clients take their medications as prescribed. They are sensitive to the needs of those going through a recuperative process as well as those with declining physical and mental ability. They provide respite for family members, often enabling family caregivers to keep their jobs or just get a good night’s sleep. Caregivers can be referred for as little as four hours once a week or as much as 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or anything in between.

Licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Human Touch complies strictly with all licensing requirements, which include PA criminal background checks, reference checking, TB screening, and competency evaluations for all prospective registrants. Many of the caregivers referred by HTHC are certified nursing assistants or trained home health aides and bring a great deal of talent, dedication, and experience to their work. All caregivers are bonded and insured.

The office staff of care coordinators are trained to listen and respond quickly to requests for service, matching each client with the caregiver most suited to them. Clients may interview a prospective caregiver if they wish or request a new referral for any reason.

Non-discrimination Policy

Human Touch Home Care does not and will not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, sex, color, national origin, ancestry, religious creed, handicap, or age in our acceptance of clients or our rostering of individuals or making referrals.

  • Cathleen was as indispensable to my wife’s care as her hospice nurse – more so since Cathleen was with her so much more of the time.

Thanks so much for sending her into our lives.

    Ms. N., Levittown
