What is home care?
Home care includes a wide range of services commonly referred to as Activities
of Daily Living (ADL) or Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL).
ADLs include assisting with dressing, bathing, toileting, continence care,
feeding, and transfers. ADLs generally require a caregiver to physically
engage with a client. IADLs include light housekeeping, meal preparation,
companionship, transportation, etc.
Home care can be useful for people who are convalescing after an illness
or injury, dealing with any number of health conditions, suffering from
memory loss or cognitive impairment or those suffering from a lack of mobility.
Home care services can be provided on a short-term or long-term basis,
depending on a client’s needs. The main aim of home care is to help
people to remain independent and safe in their homes and give their loved
ones peace of mind knowing they are well-cared for.
What does a home care provider do?
Home care providers offer in-home assistance to individuals who need help
with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, and eating.
They may also provide light housekeeping services, transportation, and
companionship. In some cases, home care providers may also be responsible
for providing medication reminders and support to clients with chronic
health issues or disabilities. Their goal is to help clients live as independently
as possible while remaining in their own homes.
What are the benefits of home care?
- Home care can offer many benefits for clients and their families, including:
- Safety at home in a familiar environment, close to friends and loved ones
