adult home services

Care Matters was founded by Columbus, Ga., natives and sisters, Sue Beth Bunn and Melissa Hargett. The idea to form this company stemmed from the family’s own need for a dependable caregiver. After the death of their mother, their grandmother required daily care, as did Sue Beth's small child. After using several care agencies in town, the sisters were frustrated with the lack of attention to their family's needs. They decided to create their own solution.

The philosophy behind Care Matters is to provide caring, quality assistance to those in need and to help relieve the stress on family members who are caring for their loved ones. Our solutions provide clients with a higher quality of life by allowing them to live at home, where they want to be, as long as possible.

We will meet with you or your loved one and develop a care plan that meets and exceeds their needs and expectations. We also will assist with coordinating other local services that can help your loved ones meet the challenges of everyday life.

Some of the benefits of in-home care include:

  • * May help prevent or postpone hospital or nursing home care
  • * Allows maximum freedom and comfort for the individual
  • * Offers individualized care tailored to the needs of the individual and family
  • * Provides professionally supervised services
  • * Supports families while keeping them together
