Sunlight Care is a family operated private company owned by long-time South Jersey resident Vance Propati. Vance is a Certified Senior Adviser (CSA) who has been trained in a broad array of senior issues. This allows him to deliver services from a unique perspective which other Home Health Care companies may not be able to provide.
Sunlight Care is different from most other Home Health Care companies who are bound into franchise contracts with national organizations. Unencumbered by national franchise rules, fees or royalties, Sunlight Care has complete freedom and financial ability to address your needs providing completely custom and affordable solutions for your family.
Each staff member at Sunlight Care is carefully selected, screened and trained. During the selection process we verify their aptitude, abilities and integrity plus perform extensive background checks. Utilizing our on-site training lab, employees are trained and skills are verified during initial orientation and throughout the year during periodic training and continuing education sessions. We strive to offer the very best caregivers at Sunlight Care for any specific individual or situation. All of our caregiving staff members are bonded, insured and covered by Worker's Compensation insurance to protect our clients and their families.
Different families choose Sunlight Care for different reasons. For some, it's to provide extensive on-ongoing care for an aging senior. For others, we offer a much needed break or “respite care” – such as a night out with a spouse, vacation, or just a few hours of quiet time at home - for family members who provide regular care.
At Sunlight Care we put your needs first by providing:
Each potential employee has to undergo a thorough screening prior to being offered a position with Sunlight Care.
Our rigorous screening process evaluates:
Each Certified Home Health Aide applicant must successfully pass a written and physical skills competency test, a drug test and the New Jersey Board of Nursing Background Investigation. Their work history is evaluated and verified. Finally, the care giver is required to have a physical and have prove they are free of tuberculosis. We are confident you will be impressed with our employees.
All Clients receiving Personal Care are evaluated by a registered nurse to determine what kind of care is needed. A unique care plan is developed for each client. Then a suitable Home Health Aide is selected and oriented to the tasks by a Registered Nurse. Sunlight Care Home Health Aides are supervised by a registered nurse. The plan of care is review in person with the Client at least every 60 days or sooner if the situation changes. The care plan is reviewed at this time.
Sunlight Care currently provides insured and bonded caregivers in the following Southern New Jersey counties:

If you are looking for some friendly company and a little help around the house, consider hiring a companion. Companion care is much cheaper than personal care. We can help you get to the store, doctor appointments, family gatherings and fun activities. We will also just visit, watch movies, play games or reminisce about the good old days. Companion care is ideal for clients that do not need hands-on assistance but would like some companionship. Our companions are trained to encourage social involvement, assist in light housekeeping and meal preparation, promote appropriate activities, and can provide local transportation services. Let us give you peace of mind that your loved one is being taken care of when you can't do it yourself.
Companion services include, but are not limited to:
Of course, we can help with all of the above tasks, but most of all, Sunlight Care Companions bring a ray of sunshine into our clients' days and a great deal of comfort to the client's family, knowing all is well.

Nothing is more important than helping people live full and dignified lives within the comfort of their own home. Sometimes that means providing home health care (Personal Care). At Sunlight Care we provide affordable home health care to residents that wish to remain at home.
Our goal is to provide home health care for your loved ones so you and your loved ones can lead productive and dignified lives. Frequently family members happily provide supportive services for their loved ones but they are not comfortable providing some of the more personal care that your loved one may need. Sunlight Care home health aides can supplement the care that family members provide with personal care services like bathing, toileting or dressing. This extra help also allows the primary caregivers to get to work on time, see the kids' shows, have vacations, and get more sleep. With Sunlight Care home health care, you are not alone. Our flexible services and customized home health care plans will improve your family's quality of life while maintaining dignity for everyone.
Our Home Health Aides are trained and licensed through the Board of Nursing and are qualified to provide not only companion/homemaker services but also personal care to your loved ones.
Services that can be provided on a personal care level include:
When all personal care is completed during the visit, our home health aides can finish off with doing some light housekeeping to ensure that your loved ones homes are safe and healthy while alone. Light housekeeping can include:

Live-In Care in New Jersey Provided by Sunlight Care
Nothing is more important than helping people live full and dignified lives within the comfort of their own home. Sometimes that means providing home health care with a live-in caregiver. At Sunlight Care we provide affordable live-in home health care to residents that wish to remain at home, yet still have the comfort of knowing that someone is available to them 24/7.
What is a live-in caregiver?
Our live-in home health aides are trained to provide continuous comfort to your loved ones. A live-in home health aide will live with the client and will be accessible when a need arises. Although live-in caregivers aren't working 24/7, they are "on-call" when your loved one is in need of care. The majority of live-in home health aides come from foreign countries and they have extremely high work ethics. Most of the live-in home health aides do not have driver's licenses or a vehicle, however, if transportation is needed, other arrangements can be made with the scheduling department.
Our Home Health Aides are trained and certified through the Board of Nursing and are qualified to provide personal care as well as homemaker services.
Live-in companion caregivers are also available. A live-in companion is trained to be available for companionship and homemaker services. Live-in companions are not allowed to do personal care as they are not certified for this. Live-in companion caregivers are great for loved ones who can do their own personal care but may need general companionship, may need additional assistance maintaining the home, or may have mild dementia or Alzheimer's.
What services can be provided by a live-in caregiver?
Services that can be provided while having a companion live-in caregiver include:
Services that can be provided while having a certified home health aide live-in caregiver include:
What is the difference between live-in care and 24/7 hourly care?
Live-in caregivers live with the client in the comfort of the clients' home. This allows the same caregiver to be there for your loved one every day. The client and the live-in caregiver will form a great bond. Live-In care is highly recommended for loved ones with dementia since changing caregivers can be confusing. Live-in care is simpler and safer than adult day care solutions since there is no need for transport every morning and evening. Live-in caregivers must be able to get uninterrupted sleep breaks and meal/general breaks. If your loved one is at a facility and the care they need becomes more than what the facility can handle, that facility may need to discharge your loved one. However, putting a live-in caregiver in with your loved one will allow them to stay at the facility.
If your loved one only sleeps a few hours at a time, you may need to supplement the live-in care with an overnight relief caregiver so the live-in caregiver can take their uninterrupted sleep break if the client wakes up frequently throughout the night (such as needing to use the bathroom). A separate caregiver will be available for 6-8 hours during the night. However, if the care throughout the day and evening becomes too much for a live-in caregiver because they are no longer receiving their required breaks, 24/7 hourly care will be the best option.
With 24/7 hourly care, multiple caregivers will be assigned in 8 or 12 hour shifts to care for your loved one. This option is necessary for situations where constant care is required or if the client has no sleeping accommodations. The 24/7 option is also available to those who need additional assistance while living in a facility or those who need constant monitoring because of unsafe wandering.
Why should I choose live-in care over an assisted living facility?
Although assisted living facilities have many benefits; a live-in caregiver has more! Your loved one will be able to stay in their own home opposed to moving a few items to a tiny apartment. Clients who are able to stay in their own home are able to manage early stages of dementia easier. After living for so many years in their home, clients know where items are located, where the bathroom and kitchen are, and how to care for themselves with the routines they developed over the years. By moving them into a new location, their early stage dementia may leave them unable to adapt to new surroundings. With live-in care they will receive one-on-one care directly where in a facility a caregiver is caring for several people at each shift. Your loved one will be able to eat the foods that they grew up with at home compared to the limited meal options at facilities. If your loved one has a pet, they are able to keep them and continue to enjoy Fido's company at home. Most facilities do not allow pets to accompany new residents. Financially, a live-in caregiver may be the way to go. A live-in caregiver costs about $6,000 month and an assisted living facility can cost anywhere from $6,000 to $12,000 a month depending on their tier of care needed.
Where does a live-in stay?
Live-in caregivers are provided with a furnished room by the client in the home. A live-in caregiver may bring their own pillows or blankets with them but linens should be provided to the caregiver. Home conditions need to be safe for the client and for the caregiver. Clients or their families must also provide meals and toiletries for the live-in caregiver. If a spare room is unavailable, it is possible to partition a common space.
Are there any state regulations for live-in caregivers?
Yes, per labor laws live-in caregivers are required to have sleep time, meal time, and free time. A caregiver qualifies as a live-in caregiver when they stay at least a consecutive 120 hours (5 days) in the home.
How are we billed and how are the caregivers paid?
We initially take a two week service deposit which is held on account and can be applied to your final bill or refunded. Billing is done biweekly and the invoicing will show the charges per day. Our live-in caregivers are paid weekly through direct deposit and we take care of all payroll taxes and insurances such as Federal and State taxes, Social Security, and Workers Compensation.
To Whom It May Concern,
Many thanks to the staff of Sunlight Care for the professional and friendly care I received recently after surgery. Elisa Sxxxx., Nurse's Aide, was a perfect match. She knew exactly what and how to provide the care I needed. I would highly recommend you all to other. Thank you again. - Charlotte B (March 15, 2015)
Dear Sandy & Carol,
We feel SO good about the fact that your excellent staff and you are helping to care for our parents Earl and Carol J. Earl has said how pleased he has been with the friendly and through service of the agency. Thank you so much for offering what is needed in a situation like ours. - Tanya & Jim H (January 2015)
I just wanted to thank you and your staff for all of your assistance over the past few months. The care and compassion routinely demonstrated by your Nurses and Home Health Aides was greatly appreciated. In addition, the fact that I could always reach out to you, the owner, with any questions or problems was a tremendous help and something a customer at a larger agency could probably not depend upon.
I also want to express a special thanks to the primary Home Health Aid responsible for my Mother's care (Rosa). She was professional, competent and hard working. However, it was her compassion and dedication to my mother that was extraordinary. Rosa became a trusted extension of our family and someone we relied upon to ensure my mother received the best care possible. We will always remember her and appreciate what she did for us.- Randy V (August 14, 2014)
Dear Sunlight Care,
This is a letter of encouragement. You all are doing swell with the terminal patients. You are listening to the patients. That's everything and listening is everything. Yes, doing the daily chores such as changing bedding and administering meds is part of your job. You do it well.
Yet, you give by listening-always, from the aides to the nurses, to the social workers, and the administrators, you always listen to the patients. One day, out of nowhere, a patient will express gratitude. It may have happened already. That thank you is just the beginning. You all are going way past what is expected of you. You are listening. What you have there will be remembered there. While you are you listening, the patients are filling you with hope. The day will come as you will appreciate greatly what is given to you, the staff, by the terminally ill. Your gratitude will be great. And it has already startedâ€¦ - Unknown Customer (January 28, 2014)
Several weeks ago I had need of the services of your company “Sunlight Care”. I want to compliment you on the efficiency and competence of the people with whom I dealt.
In particular I want to mention the companion you sent to me, Yvette. She is in my view, an extraordinary employee. She was pleasant, friendly, competent and took the initiative for duties, completing tasks in a timely manner.- Leah F (August 15, 2013)
We just wanted to thank you for being there. When my mother broke her hip, an assisted-living neighbor suggested we call you for assistance as we prepared for her return home from rehab. We did, and within two days your team had visited my mother's apartment and met with us at the hospital to confirm that you could provide an aide when she returned to her apartment the next day. We were so relieved to have things in place for my mother's continued rehab in her own surroundings. For two moths you provided my mother with a wonderful, caring, live-in aide who facilitated her recovery. As she progressed and her needs lessened, you worked with us to provide hourly assistance to get her to total independence. Most of all we appreciated the always available and invaluable access provided by you, your nurse, and your office. - Marcia and Ken T. (November 24, 2012)
