The Case For Care In The Home

home care Care in the home is the most preferred, comfortable and economical way for people to receive quality care to heal and/or maintain healthy, active lifestyles in the most familiar environment. Individuals with acute or chronic needs may receive skilled nursing care and therapy, those with terminal illness can receive hospice and palliative care, while others may benefit from help with basic activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, grooming, meal preparation and other assistance. Each type of service is delivered by a specialized team addressing personalized care. Some in-home care services are covered by a third party, while other services must be paid out-of-pocket, or with long-term care insurance policies or veteran’s benefits.
