Types Of Home Care For Seniors

logo

Home healthcare is medical care or professional primary care given by an individual caregiver within the person’s home, rather than care given in an institution such as nursing homes or clinics. Home healthcare is also sometimes referred to as domiciliary healthcare, social care or in home care. It can be provided by any adult with a special qualification or by a skilled or licensed caregiver. Caregivers provide daily personal care and support for the patient under the authority of the patient’s physician or other licensed medical health professional.I strongly suggest you to visit Gaithersburg home care to learn more about this.

In most states home health aide is defined as anyone who provides assistance to individuals who require personal care services and who has not received the assistance he or she is qualified to provide. Often times aides are employed through a private agency or are self-employed. There are many types of home health aides and they include: medical, legal, custodial, home maintenance, personal care aides, domestic help, hospice caretakers, home maintenance assistants, home health aides, public welfare workers and spiritual counselors. Some states have further subdivisions such as certified nursing assistants, home vocational services, home health aides for the elderly, home health aides for disabled adults, home health aides for children and developmentally disabled.

Seniors often require the assistance of home care aides to assist them in completing daily activities and to help them maintain independence. Home health aides play an important role in maintaining personal relationships between seniors and their families. They provide companionship, help with common day-to-day responsibilities and take time to learn about the daily needs of the senior. They also play an important role in helping seniors maintain and promote physical health and well-being. Long-term care insurance is essential for assisting seniors in obtaining quality home care.
