Home Care, also known as In-Home Care, is a term that encompasses a range of services for seniors who are aging in place in their own homes or the home of a family member, as opposed to receiving care at an Assisted Living or Memory Care Community, or Board and Care Home. Home Care provides supportive, non-medical assistance for seniors who can no longer perform the activities of daily living on their own.
Seniors who have been experiencing difficulties going about their daily routines like getting up in the morning, preparing meals, doing their laundry, going up and down stairs or becoming unsteady on their feet, yet are resistant to the idea of leaving their cherished home environments, are well suited to Home Care services. Sometimes a family member has been providing care for their loved one on their own, and has reached a point where they no longer have the time or ability to continue. Many seniors and their loved ones find themselves seeking Home Care when a discharge planner at a hospital or skilled nursing facility informs them that returning to a home where they live by themselves is not advisable. Additionally, some folks are just looking for companionship to ease feelings of loneliness or isolation, or are independent with their personal care but need transportation to appointments and someone to help them with errands or grocery shopping.
