Non-Medical Home Care Services
Assisting Seniors and Elderly Adults with the Activities of Daily Life
Non-medical home care services are designed to help seniors with day-to-day activities while allowing them to remain safe, healthy and comfortable in a familiar environment.
Improving Quality of Life with Affordable Non-Medical Home Care
Many seniors, and even younger adults, are in need of daily assistance with basic tasks such as cooking, showering, dressing and medication compliance. This type of daily assistance is not limited to the daylight hours. Oftentimes, help in the evening, at bedtime or even overnight can be needed for seniors that live alone or become insecure at night.
This type of assistance with daily activities is sometimes called Non-Medical Home Care, Private Duty, In-Home Care, Home Care Services or Home Health Services.
What is Non-Medical Home Care?
Non-medical home care is a sub-category of home care services, where a trained caregiver assists the patient with routine daily activities in the comfort and security of their own home.
When is Non-Medical Home Care Needed?
Sometimes the most important aspect of non-medical home care is the basic need for social interaction and companionship. The companionship provided by a professional caregiver should not be overlooked and is a vital, necessary component to any home care plan.
Seniors and elderly adults, in particular, need engaging conversation, mental stimulation and one-on-one interaction to maintain their mental acuity. Older adults often thrive when they have some thing to look forward to, especially when they have someone to participate with them. Whether it’s cooking, baking, sewing, gardening, shopping or watching television with a friend, a professionally trained caregiver will be there to engage, interact and care for your loved one.
