You should not take chances when it comes to your health or the health of a loved one. So when your or their health is compromised, all of the treatment options can seem overwhelming. Luckily, there is a solution: in-home care.
Regardless of their situation, many patients find that they prefer to stay in the familiar surroundings of home.
Whether 24-hour clinical care is needed or just assistance with things around the home, home care providers can help.
Home care services are an excellent option for individuals who need medical attention or even non-medical assistance with daily activities, but would rather receive this care in the comfort of home.
Coordinating home medical equipment, attending to disabilities and chronic illnesses, and performing personal care are just a few of the tasks that caregivers can perform in the home. Caregivers are often available on an as-needed basis, with no minimum time constraints. These services are a particularly helpful solution when a family caregiver is unable or unavailable to assist with the patient’s needs.
Whether it’s you or your loved one that requires home healthcare services, choosing the right home care agency to fulfill your specific care needs is essential. Once you acquire the names of several providers, you will want to learn more about all of the services they provide and the reputations they have developed as a result.

“Unskilled” or “Non-medical” care typically refers to companion and personal care activities such as bathing, grooming, dressing, as well as assistance with meal preparation, light housekeeping, and running errands. It could also include medication reminders, assistance with ambulation, and transportation to medical appointments. These types of services are typically provided by Home Health Aides (HHAs) or Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), and can be arranged for anywhere from a few hours to 24-hours a day. “Unskilled” or “Non-medical” care is often sought by the elderly, new and expectant parents, individuals with disabilities, and those transitioning from a hospital or medical facility to home.
“Skilled” medical care follows a specific plan of care under the supervision of a Physician, Nurse (RN/LPN/LVN), or Therapist, and involves home healthcare services such as nursing care, physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapies, as well as social services and hospice care. Skilled medical care in the home can help provide a comforting solution to residing in a hospital, nursing home, or assisted living community.
