Home Care Services

does my family member need assisted living?

If your elderly loved one is still living in their own home, they may still need assistance with daily activities. Home care services are an option for those who wish to continue living in their current environment while still receiving the care they need.

What are Home Care Services?

Home care is an umbrella for different services that all involve a professional coming to the person’s home to tend to their needs. This can also range from part-time check-ins to full live-in care. There are three primary services:

Personal Care
Visiting Nurse Services
Private Duty Nursing Care

The first step in any type of senior living placement is to figure out their exact needs. Finding the best in-home care services is no different and one of the many valid options within senior care. At Senior Living Experts, we will be your ultimate guide in exploring all options.

Personal Care

This is a minimal form of care, mainly for those who can still complete most activities on their own but might need some extra assistance for certain tasks. One of the most significant advantages of personal care services is the home health aide's companionship. The aide will also help with tasks such as:

  • Meal Prep
  • Housekeeping
  • Medication Reminders
  • Dressing
  • Bathing

Visiting Nurse Services

If your loved one recently had an injury or illness, visiting nurse services provide the special attention they need to recover safely. This can include:

  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech-Language Pathology
  • Illness-Specific Care

Private Duty Nursing Care

For those who require much more thorough care, private duty nursing care would be your best in-home option. This is typically most beneficial for those diagnosed with ALS, MS, CSI, or another illness. With this service, your loved one will receive all of the usual home care attention, plus help with ventilators, monitoring, and more.
