The Home Health Care

If you, or a member of your family are senior citizens, experiencing difficulty with day to day life management, a home health care agency may offer the perfect solution. They can provide the care you need, whether for a few hours each day, or even longer, as needed.

Many seniors don’t want to move to an assisted living facility or nursing home. Elderly care is a specialty of home health care agencies who provide necessary services from skilled workers. The agency can arrange these visits on a daily basis and as often as necessary.

It’s often difficult for the families of an elderly person to maintain the balance in their own lives while assuming the time stealing, stressful job of caregiver. It can be a constant daily burden when carried alone. Employing the services of a home care agency, can provide the assurance that your loved-one is safe and well cared for, enabling you to get on with the bulk of your life, daily responsibilities and even the occasional vacation.

Home Health professionals provide adults and seniors with short-term nursing, rehabilitative, therapeutic, and assistive home health care services. This care is provided by registered nurses (RNs), physical therapists (PTs), occupational therapists (OTs), speech language pathologists (SLPs), home health aides (HHAs) and medical social workers (MSWs) as a limited number of up to one hour visits, primarily through the Medicare Home Health benefit.

Adult Nursing professionals provide nursing care services at home for adults and seniors dealing with chronic illness, injury, or disability. These services are provided by registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs) primarily on an ongoing shift (two-hour or more) basis, and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This care is also sometimes referred to as private duty or adult skilled nursing.

Assistive Care professionals provide non-medical assistance with activities of daily living for adults and seniors including self-care and household support services. These services are provided primarily by home health aides on an ongoing shift (two-hour or more) basis, and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Caring for a senior can be overwhelming and draining, leading to extreme fatigue and burnout. Having the services of an agency can provide the break you need to relax, regroup and recuperate.

The services provided by a home health care agency will depend on the wishes of the senior. Prior to beginning the relationship, the agency will assess needs and determine preferences as to how much care is needed, how much time is optimal and what time the client wishes for the caregiver to arrive, Everything possible is done to accommodate the senior in regards to when they like to eat meals, get started in the morning or go to bed at night.
