Home Care

Home health aide service consists of various services that can be administered in your family's home. Typically, home care services screen potential seniors prior to admission. This screening might include medication use, weight/nutritional status, and ADLs abilities. This type of care provides multiple services including short-term nursing care, local transportation, and assistance scheduling medical appointments. This care type can provide various medical services such as assisting residents in drinking fluid to swallow medication, opening container lids, and assistance in removing medication from container for those residents with a physical disability. Also, services offered may include long-term nursing care and ventilator care. In-home care may also provide your family member assistance doing laundry and bathing.
