What Home Care Services Do We Provide
Whether your loved one needs medical or non-medical care, it is important to know the difference.
Medical in-home care is always ordered by a physician, requires a prescription, and is designed to treat a medical condition. Some examples of Medical Home Care consist of: post-surgery activities, wound care, catheterization, feeding tube support, ventilation assistance or injections. Most people are unaware that with Medical in-home care, visits are limited. Which means a staff member can only visit your home for a short time during a defined period. Visits are normally brief and cannot be customized to an individual’s full needs. Even though we recommend that families work with a skilled home health care company for medical in-home care services, this does not mean that we cannot help you.
With non medical in-home care you’re in charge of the frequency and length of visits that you or your loved one receives. Through Helpers at Home, your loved one will receive truly customized care at any time that they need it. Our staff provides a wide range of services for our clients who need help with their activities of daily living. Often the ill and elderly need an extra pair of hands to remain independent in their own home. That’s where our experienced staff members come in. To allow your loved one the ability to remain independent while we provide assistance with the activities of daily living that is listed below:
