What is personal home care assistance?
Personal home care assistance can best be described as assistance with activities of daily living, the common things that a healthy person would do for him/herself on a daily basis. This would include personal care (bathing, dressing, help with the bathroom), light housekeeping, laundry, linen changes, meal preparation, transportation, running errands and medication reminders. It also consists of things like supervision and companionship.
Who can receive personal home care assistance?
Individuals of all ages and with a variety of personal care needs can receive personal home care assistance services. If you feel that you or a loved one may benefit from home care, we are only a phone call away. A member of our experienced staff can meet for a complimentary in-home assessment to determine if personal home care assistance is right for you.
What are caregivers not allowed to do?
Personal home caregivers cannot do anything that would be described as clinical or invasive. Most importantly, they cannot administer any medications. If the client requires insulin, or other injections, they would have to be administered by the client or a trusted member of the family. Also, a caregiver should not be monitoring vitals such as blood sugar, blood pressure, etc.
Can I change the schedule based on my needs?
Yes. Feel free to call us and we are happy to make changes to your schedule.
Are services covered by Medicare?
No. Medicare does not cover this type of care.
