In-home care for elder adults is based on the principle that aging adults should remain as independent as possible and be in a safe and healthy environment. To that end, most home care agencies work hard to make sure that their caregivers create an environment for clients so that they can live as much of their life independently with an appropriate level of care to maintain a high quality of life. Often times, caregivers are brought in when someone has had an injury, such as a fall, or has a chronic illness. However, it is just as likely to see a caregiver helping a client in her garden or escorting a client to his hair appointment–activities that keep the client active and mentally stimulated.
Understanding exactly what home care is and sorting through the many different care options can be time consuming and trying for elders and their loved ones. What Is Home Care, a guide designed to answer all of your senior care questions, provides a more in-depth understanding of what services caregivers provide and how home care can have a dramatic impact for the better on someone’s life.
