Home care, often referred to as personal care, helps older adults maintain healthy, active lifestyles for as long as possible in the comfort of their own homes. Home care has emerged as a valuable solution to fill gaps created by traditional care models, including hospitals, nursing homes, and home health. Home care workers – also known as professional caregivers, personal care aides or direct care workers, or in some cases, certified nursing assistants (CNAs) – who work for agencies receive professional training to enable them to assist with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation, eating, transportation, running errands, and light housework. Most importantly, these caregivers provide vital companionship and mental stimulation by engaging their clients in conversation and other activities. While not typically medically certified, home care workers serve as an additional set of “eyes and ears” for families, helping to ensure older adults’ safety by recognizing and alerting family members and health care professionals to potential signs of declining health.
Some of the basic services offered with home care include:
- Bathing, Shaving, Ambulation
