What We Do
We provide the highest level of care and support to individuals who need short or long term services such as assistance with bathing, dressing, cooking, grooming, light housekeeping, shopping, companionship, and respite relief for family caregivers.
We provide these services to individuals on a fee-for-service basis as well as to members of the Arizona Long Term Care System.
How Is PimaCare At Home Different?
Our supervisors and caregivers understand the strains placed on family members when an individual requires care, and we can help alleviate that strain.
Our caregivers are experienced, compassionate, qualified, trustworthy individuals specifically trained in all areas of caregiving.
We are committed to being your trusted choice for non-medical personalized home care services, helping to keep you and your loved one living as independently and as safely as possible in the comfort of home.
For family members who live near their loved one and are overseeing or providing care themselves, we are available to provide additional caregiving and/or respite care as needed or desired.
PimaCare At Home staff and caregivers have many years of experience in caregiving and are passionate about providing the highest level of care and service to our clients.

PimaCare at Home was established in 2010 as a subsidiary of Pima Council on Aging. It is an honor and a privilege to provide Pima County residents with our premium in-home care services, as well as the value and respect of PCOA.
Our commitment to aiding our clients to remain in their homes, at the highest level of independence possible, for their care has been the foundation for our work for many years in the greater Tucson community: first as the Attendant Care Program under Pima Health Systems, and now as PimaCare At Home.
We believe individuals are happier, healthier, and feel more loved when cared for in their own homes.
What is it like to work with PimaCare at Home?
- A Program Supervisor makes an initial visit to the home of the prospective client to perform an assessment and develop a Care Plan.
- A Program Supervisor provides overall supervision of the program as well as training and ongoing supervision of caregivers.
Referrals may be made by the individual needing care, parents of children with a disability in need of care giving, adult children of aging parents and/or parents with a disability, licensed fiduciaries, attorneys, friends, or anyone acquainted with the prospective client may initiate a referral for care.
When a referral is received, a supervisor visits the prospective client’s home to conduct an assessment of the client’s needs and wishes.
If the client’s family member(s) are not present and wish to be included remotely, this can be arranged with the client’s permission.
Next Steps: Developing a Care Plan
An individualized care plan is developed based on the assessment and discussion, including the fee schedule for the services. (Fees for our ALTCS clients are not charged back to the client.)
The client and any family member(s) are integral participants in the plan development and participate in the selection of their personal caregiver.
We build as much flexibility as possible into the Care Plan so that if unanticipated needs arise, the Direct Care Worker has some limited flexibility to go beyond the plan.
