When looking for home care, an important question arises: Home health care or home care services? The differences are important. We’re more than happy to help you decide which kind of care is right and which provider of care best suits you and your loved one’s needs.
Home health care allows elders the freedom to live in an independent setting. It can include occupational and physical therapy, speech therapy, and other services. The providers of these services are licensed practical nurses, therapists, or home health aides – and they may provide some home care services, especially when elders are recovering from an injury or illness.
Home care involves assisting elders with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, transferring and eating. It sometimes includes assistance with other important activities like cooking, housekeeping, cleaning, or dispensing an elder’s daily regimen of prescription and over-the-counter medications.
The decision between home health care and home care is an important one, and we’ll give you the peace of mind that only comes with the experience that we bring. Disclaimer: My Elder Advocate does not employ any home health care professionals or non-professionals. We only make recommendations. MEA does not receive any direct compensation from recommended personnel. All financial and other arrangements other than the initial placement fee is strictly between the client and the home care personnel.
