    • About Home Care

    As people live longer, more active lives, home care has become a way of enhancing the quality of life for individuals of all ages, from infants to seniors. Advances in medical technology, communications technology and professional training have broadened the ability of home care to meet a variety of needs.

    Here are some of the benefits of modern home care:

    • Offers many medical and personal care services once provided only in hospitals and nursing homes
    • Reduces the amount of time patients spend in hospitals
    • Keeps families together in the comfort and familiarity of the traditional home
    • Provides a variety of services that allow people to enjoy active, productive lives
    • Enhances lifestyle by providing increased independence and mobility
    • Offers companionship and comfort to people who once felt forgotten or alone
    • Provides convenient health monitoring and needed medical alert services
    • Provides respite and support for family members and friends who serve as caregivers
    • Offers the convenience of therapy services and medical treatment at home, on the patient’s schedule
    • Provides medication set-up and monitoring to assure medications are taken as prescribed
    • Helps people live in a cleaner, safer home environment, thanks to meal preparation, personal care and housekeeping services
    • Family members and friends enjoy peace of mind knowing their loved ones are receiving the care and attention they need

    As you can see, the old stereotypes about home care being "just for old people" have changed for the better. And, a good home care agency provides clients with the ability to choose the home care services that best meets their needs and fits their lifestyle.
