Bright, Vibrant, and Active | Home Care in Pa.

We are Community Resources for Independence, and we connect individuals with disabilities to helpful resources for independent living, such as home care in Pennsylvania. By doing so, we provide healthier, happier lives to individuals who might otherwise have been deprived of their independence. Our services are peer-conducted whenever possible because we recognize that individuals with disabilities understand your needs best and have the experience necessary to help you satisfy them.

We support a wide variety of people, so we offer a wide variety of services. Everyone is different, which is why we work with you to determine what assistance will enhance your quality of life the most. We are happy to provide care within the home and beyond. Whatever services you choose will be delivered by a highly-skilled staff devoted to making life easier. Too many barriers prevent individuals with disabilities from living active, independent lives. Let us tear some of those down for you.
