In home care allows seniors to remain in their home while still receiving the assistance they need to remain safely independent. In home care can either include medical or non-medical services. In home caregivers and companions offer a variety of non-medical care services depending on the needs of the senior they are assisting. Tasks may include daily companionship, and assistance with medications, transportation, grocery shopping, and cleaning. In home nurses or medical staff may also provide medical services including injections, wound care, IV management, collecting vital signs, and more. In home care is paid by the hour, allowing families to customize how often and how long they wish for a caretaker to be available. Care can be provided around the clock, or on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
When choosing a care provider to welcome into your home, it’s important to select a team of professionals that you trust. Some providers may not have valid qualifications, or may not be able to address the needs of you or your loved one. Fortunately, our advisors have longstanding relationships with many of the Valley’s leading in-home care providers, and routinely re-evaluate the providers we work with in order to ensure that we’re only recommending the very best.
