What is Elderly Home Care?

Understanding the elderly home care services we provide helps you make the best senior care solution

Elderly home care is any type of essential personal care provided for a senior in their residence. Home care is different from home health care, which assists seniors with medical needs. Home health care must be provided by a medical professional whereas home care services are provided by trained caregivers, Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) and Home Health Aides (HHA).

Unfortunately, knowing just the definition of elderly home care may not answer your questions about this kind of care. You may be wondering how a caregiver will know what assistance your loved one needs or how they can provide their services without jeopardizing your parent's dignity and safety. You may be worried that your loved one will not get along with their care provider or that their caregiver will not be respectful enough. These are all legitimate concerns.
