WHAT IS IN-HOME CARE?
Home care includes any professional support services that allow a person to live safely in their home. In-home care services can help someone who is aging and needs assistance to live independently; is managing chronic health issues; is recovering from a medical setback; or has special needs or a disability.
Medical research shows that a familiar environment can speed recovery, reduce stress, and ensure comfort. Our in-home private duty services can be availed without a physician’s order and offer greater convenience, privacy, and a more economical alternative to the rising costs of institutions.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF IN-HOME CARE
The biggest advantage of in-home care is for seniors; it allows older adults to age in place and avoid making the move to an institution.
At home, a senior feels most comfortable with the environment. Home care is also the most cost-effective health care delivery offered as there are no room and board costs compared to nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, and other institutional care settings. Home care offers individualized services that are tailored to the client’s health care needs and finances.
Adult children of seniors serve as primary caregivers to the ill or elderly loved ones. In-home care assistance allows family caregivers to carry own with their life priorities like work, childcare, spousal relationship, and more time for self.
In general, receiving non-medical home care reduces unavoidable hospital readmission, and research show that individuals are recuperating from illness, injury, or surgery heal more quickly when recovering at home instead of a medical facility.

Paying for Private Duty / In-Home Care
When curing a serious illness is no longer possible, many people choose to stop curative treatment and accept palliative care. Palliative care means emphasis is placed on comfort and control of symptoms. It is not intended to prolong life. Private Duty / In-Home Care is provided primarily in the home, nursing home, or in an assisted living facility.
