YOUR GUIDE TO ELDERLY HOME CARE BY NESTVY:
In-home caregiving for seniors is one of the most popular choices in elder care for aging adults, and it consists of a hired, professional caregiver coming to the senior’s residence.
The scope of care varies greatly and may include a live-in caregiver, 24-hour care, part-time care, medical care, or companion care. Elderly in-home care enables seniors to stay in the comfort of their own home for as long as possible. It is often best to use a home care agency to find and hire a caregiver, as they undergo a strict vetting process as employees. It’s also important to differentiate between home care and home health care.
Home care is a caregiver who assists with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as transportation, cleaning, and meal prep. A home health care aide can be a nurse, CNA, or other medically trained caregiver hired to assist with medications, wound care, use medical equipment, and treat other medically related needs. They also differ in regards to cost and what insurances and Medicare will cover.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM
ELDERLY HOME CARE?
Seniors with advanced stages of dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease, who need 24-hour supervision, or extended medical care also benefit greatly from in-home elder care.
Seniors who have had an injury or illness that requires physical therapy also benefit from an in-home caregiver, as they are able to complete treatment in their home until they are recovered enough to travel to doctor’s appointments.
Seniors who desire to stay in their homes for a long as possible receive the most benefit from in-home care. This is because the care is generally incredibly diverse and flexible.
Some seniors simply need companionship, help running errands or to get to doctor’s appointments, assistance with personal grooming, or help with meal prep and the upkeep of their home. Other seniors need more medical care and require a nurse or CNA for help with medication adherence, physical therapy, and wound care.
