We Provide Home Care
What is Home Care?
More than 7.6 million Americans receive home care, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.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 the senior. The aim of home care is to allow seniors to remain at home longer rather than enter an assisted living community, nursing home or other type of 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 but may also extend to assistance with transportation, making appointments, and simply being there to provide companionship and emotional support.
Home care services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can be paid for directly by the client or through a variety of public and private funding sources such as Long Term Care Insurance, Workers Compensation, and VA benefits.
Need Homecare? We can provide quality and affordable care in the comfort of your own home. Our caregivers are professing Christians, reliable, fully-screened, bonded, employees of our agency with both liability and workers compensation insurance coverage. Contact us to discuss our variety of home care options for every need and budget. There’s no place like home!
What is Assisted Living?
Assisted living communities or assisted living facilities (ALFs) help promote health, safety and well-being among the senior residents that live there. Assisted living was developed as a type of senior housing to provide housing, health care and personal care services to seniors in need of assistance with activities of daily living in a more independent environment than a traditional nursing home.
What is Alzheimer's Care?
Over 4.5 million people in the United States and 26 million worldwide suffer from Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia. The disease destroys brain cells and symptoms can include confusion, anger, mood swings, language breakdown and long-term memory loss. Caring for a person with Alzheimer's disease involves specialized services that differ from other types of senior housing.
What is a Nursing Home?
Today in the United States there are over 16,000 nursing homes. Nursing homes, also known as skilled nursing facilities, are for seniors who require constant medical care and need significant assistance with the activities of daily living. The goal of care in a nursing home is to help individuals meet their daily physical, medical, social, and psychological needs. Nursing homes are generally stand alone facilities, but some are operated within a hospital or an assisted living community.
Residential Care Homes
What are Residential Care Homes?
Residential care homes are known by different names depending on where you live. In some areas they are called adult family homes, in other areas they may be referred to as personal care homes, adult foster homes, group homes, or board and care homes. Typically they all have the same things in common: they provide care for seniors in a homelike setting that's very much like a family.
Residential Care Homes
What are Retirement/Independent Living Communities?
Retirement communities or independent living communities cater to seniors who are very independent with few medical problems. Residents live in fully equipped private apartments available in a variety of sizes from studios to large two bedrooms. Fine dining services are offered with custom-designed meal packages.
