Melissa Morey, owner of All in your Home, Home Care, has been treating her clients like family for the nearly five years. Now, to better accommodate the people her business serves, All In Your Home, Home Care has expanded and relocated to 93 W. Main St., North East.
The home health care business was previously located just a few blocks away at 22 S. Lake St.
“We moved here because we now offer skilled nursing services as well. Our nurses can now go into the homes to see clients,” Morey said. “We’re also looking to add home modification to our services, too. Home modification allows the elderly to stay in their homes longer.
Morey said the move also helped accommodate additional staff that was recently hired.
“Our upstairs is now set up for our nurses and medical director who’ve recently come on board,” Morey said. “We now have CNAs, LPNs and RNs on our staff.”
All in Your Home, Home Care is also accredited with the Accreditation Commission for Health Care — or ACHC.
Morey, who has been in the medical field for over a decade, said it was her desire to see the elderly get the quality care they deserved that drove her to open her business.
“Prior to opening my own business, I worked for an agency where I felt the elderly weren’t being cared for like they should have been, I knew that I could do better,” she said. “I also cared for my grandmother who had cancer and then my father.
“A lot of people don’t want anyone but family caring for them,” Morey added. “I expect from my employees that they treat all of our clients as if they were their own family.”
Morey added that while running a round-the-clock home health care business can be stressful at times, it’s also incredibly fulfilling.
“I’m a single parent of three kids,” she said. “It’s been a lot of work, but so rewarding. There have been times when it’s very stressful, since this is a 24-hour job, but the good outweighs it.”
After nearly five years, Morey is still growing All in Your Home, Home Care and strives to meet all her clients’ needs. Currently, the business has 62 employees and serves more than 70 clients.
“This kicked off very quickly and has continued to grow ever since,” Morey said. “I’m actually going to school to receive my bachelor’s degree in business.”
All in Your Home, Home Care offers basic help, bathing, companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, transportation to medical appointments and other services.
“Eventually, I’d like to add on non-medical transportation as well and just continue to grow,” she said. “We are also working on getting to the point where we’ll be able to accept all insurances. We are Medicare approved already.”
While the business is based in North East, it serves clients across Erie County.
“We go everywhere,” Morey said. “We have clients in Union City, Erie, Girard, you name it.”

“Anyone who needs our help for themselves, or for a loved one, should call us,” Morey said. “We’d be happy to help.”
