Home Care, Residential Care

Over 7 million Americans receive some sort of home care. Home care is generally defined as non-medical support given at the home of a senior. Home care is designed to allow a senior to live at home longer rather than enter an assisted living facility. A caregiver can provide all kinds of services at home, from bathing and cleaning to cooking meals to providing transportation. Home care services are generally available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can be paid for by a client or through a combination of public and private funding.

There are two types on home care, skilled and custodial. Skilled care provides medical services. Custodial care my involve help with the day-to-day activities around the residence. Cleaning, cooking and bathing come under the area of custodial care. Custodial care includes transportation, shopping and bathing as well. Some agencies provide one or the other type of care, some agencies provide both. Once you determine what type of care you or your loved one needs, make sure to interview the agencies to find out what type of services they offer. Also, most states have an organization that oversees and reviews home care agencies. So, check with your state to see if the agencies you are interviewing are legitimate.
