In Home Care
In-home care refers to the type of care provided to people who need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) but prefer to stay in their own home rather than move to a care facility. In-home care can be provided by family members, friends, or professional caregivers who are trained and licensed to provide specific types of care.
In-home care services can vary depending on the needs of the person receiving care, but they typically include assistance with activities such as bathing, dressing, grooming, toileting, mobility, meal preparation, medication management, and companionship. In-home care can also include more specialized services such as wound care, physical therapy, and hospice care.
In-home care can be provided on a full-time or part-time basis, and can range from a few hours a week to 24-hour care. The cost of in-home care varies depending on the level of care required and the geographic location. Some types of in-home care may be covered by insurance or government programs, while others may require private payment.
