Home Care


 

 

When living alone requires additional support and you or your loved one prefers to remain at home, In-Home care can be the best option.

With In-Home care, seniors can receive either medical or non-medical care.

  • Non Medical In-home care consists of support services provided by trained caregivers that are not medical personnel and is typically paid privately or by Medicaid.
  • Medical In-home care is provided by skilled clinicians such as Nurses, Physical, Speech and Occupational Therapist and is typically paid by Medicare or private health insurance.
In-home care can have advantages and disadvantages from other types of assisted living care.
 
Advantages include an intimate level of comfort in familiar surroundings, which can lead to better health outcomes.
 
In-home care services are also affordable if you only require a few hours of care per week. Assisted Living Locators™ Atlanta can offer innovative tools for emergency alert service in case of injury or falls and medication monitoring. Having these systems inside the home add peace of mind, added security and safety.

As for disadvantages, when in-home care patients become less active, socializing becomes more difficult and can lead to feelings of isolation and depression.

Also, certain medical conditions such as recovery from stroke or injury, uncontrolled diabetes and onset of Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease cannot be treated within the home as effectively as in an assisted living or skilled nursing facility

In-Home care services can range from as few as 3 or 4 hours up to 24 hours-per-day, 7-days-per-week. Fees for In-Home Care can range from $18 to $25 per hour.

Non-medical care, like companion care or support to complete activities of daily living, is paid privately or by Medicaid. Medicare or private health insurance typically pays for medical care provided by skilled clinicians.

In-home Care Services include:

  • assistance with bathing, dressing, and grooming
  • meal preparation and grocery shopping
  • transportation to and from appointments
  • light house-keeping
