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, ” empowering our clients in their pursuit of safe happy live at home” . With this in mind, Bess set out to build a registry of the most caring and carefully screened Caregivers to assist her clients. The Caregivers referred through the Human Touch registry help with non-medical in-home care, and 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 are 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. These carefully screened individuals help those recovering from illness or a fracture, and those with physical or cognitive impairment. Most of the Caregivers referred by HTHC, LTD. 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 clients with the caregiver most suited to them. Clients may interview a prospective Caregiver of they wish, or request a new referral for any reason. Call us at 215-233-0676

Hear What Our Clients Have To Say


  • I could not have done this without Cecile ( HTHC referred Caregiver). She was what held it together. ...you need people in your life who are remarkable and Cecile was remarkable. She is very caring and goes the extra mile all the time. This is one of the hardest cases we have and she took it graciously. I can't even give her a present that would make up for what she has done ( for her client). I call her Saint Cecile.

    Stephanie S., care manager

  • Marie, ( the care-coordinator) has made my life so much more pleasant. She is a great representative for Human Touch. She has helped me in 10 different ways. It’s not easy having a husband who needs caregivers, but Marie has made my situation so much more bearable.

    Mrs. N.

  • My wife and I were very blessed when Lowanna was sent to us. She is very dedicated and comes on time or early every week. She knows just what is needed to help me. This weekend she helped me organize photos for a celebration of my wife’s life. That was difficult for me but Lowanna was wonderful. She is an angel from Heaven.

    Mr. L. re Lowanna Moore

  • Antoinette has been wonderful to my mother, Alice W. . I don't know what we would do without her. My Mother's health has been improving due in no small part to Antoinette's care. I feel completely confident in having her here with my parents. It is just so good not to have to worry while she is here.

    Susan E.

  • Val is really quite careful about so many things and if I call her, she comes to help me right away. And she is very patient. I am very grateful for that and really very satisfied with the care. Many people have commented how much happier I seem now. And that certainly makes me feel good too. Having Val has made a big difference.
