About Us

Care Centered Around Your Needs

Safe Harbor Home Care was founded in order to assure that quality non-medical in-home care was available throughout San Diego County. Safe Harbor is dedicated to providing affordable, competent, and compassionate home care services by employing qualified, reliable personal care attendants for you. We assist our clients with their activities of daily living. We also connect our clients and their families with valuable resources in the community.

Client Safety

Client safety is of high importance with Safe Harbor. Safe Harbor applies a meticulous and consistent process for the recruitment, selection and hiring of staff, in accordance state and federal regulations, equal opportunity requirements and non-discriminatory regulations. Only qualified and trained caregivers are introduced to our clients. Safe Harbor requires that all new employees undergo certain criminal and other background checks as a condition of employment, to include: TB testing, DMV driving record, drug testing, registration clearance, and work experience are verified and assessed to guarantee that our clients receive qualified caregivers to care for them.

Staff Training & Development

Staff training & development is a planned intervention that is implemented to ensure employees are thoroughly knowledgeable and competent in carrying out their duties/activities. Its intent is to avoid problems by being proactive in planning formal and informal sessions which distribute information and techniques to personal care attendants.

Supplies, Equipment & Reimbursement

You are responsible for supplying all supplies (i.e. cleaning, personal care etc.) and equipment that may be necessary in the provision of services. Extra charges will apply if the Safe Harbor provides the supplies and/or equipment.

Client will provide necessary monies to Safe Harbor personnel to purchase grocery or pharmacy items, unless prior arrangements have been made with Safe Harbor.

Properly documented mileage expenses will be included on the Client’s service invoice.
