The Benefits of Non-Medical Home Care
As people age, they may need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, and eating. In some cases, they may also need help with instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) such as cooking, cleaning, and shopping.
Traditionally, when people need assistance with ADLs or IADLs, they would go into a nursing home or assisted living facility. However, in recent years, there has been a growing trend towards non-medical home care.
Non-medical home care is a type of care that is provided in the home of the individual receiving care. This type of care can be provided by a variety of professionals, including nurses, social workers, and home health aides.
There are many benefits to non-medical home care. One of the biggest benefits is that it allows people to stay in their own homes, which can be a more comfortable and familiar environment. Additionally, non-medical home care can help to reduce the cost of care, as it is often less expensive than nursing home or assisted living care.
If you or a loved one is considering non-medical home care, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, you will need to find a reputable agency that provides quality care. You should also make sure that the agency is licensed and insured.
Once you have found a reputable agency, you will need to meet with a care coordinator to discuss your specific needs. The care coordinator will work with you to develop a care plan that meets your individual needs and preferences.
