IMPROVING FAMILY LIFE,
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING!
Home Care is a service that assists those in need to continue living and celebrating life from the comfort of their own home. It is a model of care that includes both professional and informal support networks that include family, neighbors, and friends. To remain independent, these individuals construct your ‘Care Plan’ which work together to meet your goals and expected outcomes. At some point, you may determine that a professional Home Care company is needed.
When selecting a Home Care services company, you will have many questions. The first thing to understand is that Home Care services vary from facility-based options. Chances are if you’re researching senior care you’ve heard a lot about senior housing options such as a nursing home, assisted living community, adult day care, retirement community, or continuing care retirement community (or CCRC). These elderly care options all have unique benefits, however, at home care is often the preferred choice for seniors who wish to age in place at their own home. Your financial, social, and health situation will often determine which environment you choose. Depending on your loved ones needs, you may opt for him or her to receive non-medical home care to provide them with companionship and supervision throughout the day when you’re unable to attend to their needs. A non-medical caregiver is as thoroughly vetted as a caregiver with RN or LPN-experience, but may be a better fit for your budget and loved one’s needs.
