Home Care Agency in Louisville, KY
What is Senior Home Care?
More than 7.6 million Americans receive senior home care, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. And the number is much greater when you consider that it does not include informal care which is care given by a friend or family member. Home care is generally defined as non-medical support services delivered at the home of a senior.
The aim of home care is to allow seniors to remain at home longer. Home care is an alternative to an assisted living community, nursing home or some other type of institutional senior care. Home care may be appropriate if a senior prefers to stay at home but needs assistance with activities of daily living.
Activities of daily living include bathing, dressing, and meal preparation. And they may also extend to many other types of support. This includes things like: assistance with transportation, bill-paying, pet care, making appointments, and simply being there to provide companionship and emotional support.
Senior home care services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And you can pay for them directly, or through a variety of public and private funding sources. Often people pay for senior home care with long term care insurance, Veterans Benefits, workers’ compensation, and Medicaid.
