In-Home Care

Often referred to as “companion care”, in-home care services are non-medical in nature, yet, highly beneficial to those that receive them.

In-Home Care Service

In-home care service is an optimal choice for individuals who require assistance with the basic day-to-day activities associated with daily living, yet are healthy enough (and mentally stable enough) to maintain their independence by living at their home.

Often referred to as “companion care,” in-home care services are non-medical in nature, yet highly beneficial to those that receive them. This type of care is customized on a patient-to-patient basis, with the direct input of the patient and their loved ones.

“The closest thing to being cared for is to care for someone else.” – Carson McCullers

Skilled In-Home Care Services

Skilled home care services are short-term services provided to those that are homebound, incapable of traveling, or wishing to reside within the comfort of their home.

Examples of care provided include case management assistance, instrumental activities associated with daily living and standard activities of daily living. These services are most often provided to those that experience some degree of isolation from the general public or have a caregiver that requires assistance.

Instrumental Activities of Daily Living

Instrumental activities of daily living are the self-care tasks associated with living. They typically involve organizational skills and/or thinking skills that are complex in nature. Our in-home care service providers offer assistance in all of these.

Examples of such activities include – but, are not at all limited to – the following:

  • Assistance in managing one’s finances
  • Help in shopping
  • Transportation management
  • Meal preparation
  • Housecleaning
  • Maintenance of the home
  • Communication management, such as making calls, retrieving mail, responding when necessary
  • Medication management

Activities of Daily Living

Our in-home care service providers also assist in the activities of daily living. These are very basic tasks that aid in self-care. The following outlines the most general of these activities:

  • Walking/ambulating
  • Eating meals
  • Bathing/showering
  • Grooming
  • Dressing
  • Toileting
  • Transferring of body from one position to another

The Benefits

In-home care service providers assist those with challenging medical conditions and seniors by providing customized, affordable care services that allow them to continue functioning in an independent fashion within their community.

Not only do these services aid the patient, but they also benefit their loved ones who are engaged in the caregiving process by providing specialized expert care and highly-needed respite services.

According to the organization known as the National Family Caregivers Association, in excess of 50 million individuals in the United States and in Canada provide caregiving services for a loved one that is chronically ill, disabled and/or elderly. In-home care service providers help ease the burden of this challenging endeavor.
