Home care encompasses a wide range of health and social services delivered at an individual’s home and includes both medical and non-medical forms of care. These services are specific to recovering, disabled, chronically or terminally ill individuals in need of medical, nursing, therapeutic treatment, companionship and assistance with the essential activities of daily living (ADLs).
Generally, home care is appropriate whenever an individual prefers to stay at home, but needs ongoing care that cannot easily or effectively be provided solely by family and friends. More and more seniors elect to live independently, but may require home care services as their physical capabilities diminish. As hospital stays decrease, an increasing numbers of patients and seniors require highly skilled services in order to return to the comfort of their own homes.
