Home care agencies help people in their own homes or in other places where they live, like independent living arrangements or assisted living facilities.
The purpose of home care is to maintain the client’s safety and maximum level of independence at their home and/or with their family. Seniors, those recovering from an accident or surgery, new mothers, people with physical disabilities, and people with chronic health conditions can all be customers of home care.
Home health care agencies have historically offered both medically necessary and non-medically necessary home care services.
Home healthcare services included skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, durable medical equipment, and other services related to personal health care. These services often need a doctor’s prescription and are typically covered by Medicare or another type of health insurance. Non-medical home care is also offered by some organizations.
Today, there are organizations that focus on non-medical home care, such as our caregivers, who provide home care in Troy, Michigan. Non-medical home care includes companionship, homemaking (cooking, laundry, and light housekeeping), and personal care (bathing, toileting, continence care, lifting, support with ambulation, and feeding), shopping, errands, and incidental transportation.
