Private Home Care in Jacksonville: Understanding Home Care Terms
When you're exploring private home care options for a family member, it's easy to get confused or even overwhelmed by the terms involved. At Visiting Angels® Jacksonville, our care team will always guide you through setting up care, so you're never uncertain or in the dark about what's involved. While you and your family will have the final say on your loved one's care plan, we're here to help.
Let's review some of the most common types of care offered for seniors aging in place at home.
3 Common Types of Private Home Care in Jacksonville
Private home care provides in-home caregiver support, allowing seniors to remain at home instead of aging in place at a facility. This type of care can be endlessly customized based on the unique needs of each client, but here are a few categories of support that we can offer:
- Respite care offers rest and breathing room when there's a family caregiver in the picture. In these situations, we can provide short-term support, so that the family caregiver can take a break or attend to other priorities. We can also work side-by-side with family caregivers to assist with tasks.
- Palliative care is well-suited for seniors who are dealing with chronic and serious health concerns, and who may have to remain home most of the time. Palliative care provides ongoing and long-term support, administered by one of our certified home aides or certified nursing assistants (CNAs).
- Live-in care offers 24-hour care for those clients who need constant support throughout the day. A professional caregiver will live in the house, providing frequent care and assistance as needed. They'll typically reserve 8 hours of each day for rest, picking up where they left off with care tasks afterward.
These are just a handful of care options available to seniors in Jacksonville. With our agency, you can simply tell us about your loved one's needs, and we can set up care services that help them age in place more easily.
