Home health care covers three levels of service.
The first is companion care. Companion care can help your seniors stave off depression and isolation by providing someone to talk to as well as someone to offer assistance with everyday life. Running errands, playing games, sharing long conversations. The company can make a world of difference.
Home care services allows seniors to get a little help around the house. Cooking, cleaning, and other chores can be daunting for the elderly. A friendly face who takes care of these needs can make a world of difference.
Finally, there’s personal care and medication administration services covering grooming, dementia care, and more intensive services from CNAs and Qualified Medication Administration Personnel (QMAP) who work under the guidance of a staff RN. The RN creates a care plan for the client and then the aide is trained on the specifics of the plan. This gives seniors what they need to manage their medical regimens.

There’s no hard and fast rule. Some seniors only need a few weeks of services to recover from surgery or major illness.
Others will need home care for life, or until they are ready to move into an assisted living facility.
