Choosing the right homecare agency for yourself or a loved one is an important task. Here are some questions to ask when considering a home health provider.

Home Care is an option for senior care that enables aging at your own home. In-Home Care services are an alternate and preferred choice versus an assisted living or nursing home.

Considering Your Options

When selecting a home care services company, you will have many questions. The first thing to understand is that home care services differ 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. 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 in their own home.

Your financial, social, and health situation will often determine which environment you choose. Depending on your loved one’s needs, you may opt for him or her to receive non-medical in home care to provide them with services throughout the day when you’re unable to attend to their needs.

Home care is a model that can include both professional and informal support networks such as family, neighbors, and friends. To remain independent, these individuals work together to meet your goals and expected outcomes.

In-home health care providers can refer caregivers who have a background in home health nursing, such as an RN or LPN who is skilled at working with older adults in a home environment. In-home health care can also encompass home health aides and therapists who make house calls, caring for an adult at their home and administering therapy to them rather than having them travel to a care facility or physical therapist’s office.

Non-medical home care can be helpful to older adults who may have difficulty doing some of the things they used to do when they were younger, who need assistance with household chores, or who would benefit from companionship
