Non-medical home care focuses on helping seniors with the daily activities they need to engage in to remain safe and healthy. Many seniors need help to get their day started with assistance showering, preparing breakfast and taking their medications.
One of the most important needs of a senior who lives alone is often simple companionship. The companionship component of a professional caregiver’s job can be just as vital as the physical assistance a professional will provide.
Non-medical home care refers to services of daily living. Disability or chronic illnesses may prevent you or a loved one from doing basic activities(eating, dressing, bathing, walking, etc.). Getting help for long term care services will fulfill those needs. However, you should first analyze if you or a loved one need those services to save money.
