Who needs home care and what is non-medical home care?
Many people can benefit from home care. Many elderly and seniors wish to stay at home in their golden years rather than move to some sort of assisted living or other type of facility. Staying at home keeps them as independent as possible and lets them continue to live safely and in an environment they are used to and comfortable with. They just need a little help to keep them safe and well cared for. Other people whose lives would be greatly helped with home care include adults and children with disabilities, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia patients, people with neuromuscular conditions, people recovering from surgery or going through rehabilitation, people at risk of falling and becoming injured and family and friend caregivers that need a break or respite.
