About Non-Medical Care
What is Home Care? What is Non-Medical Home Care? We understand there may be a lot of confusion regarding these terms and we are here to help you understand what we do.
Home Care is a term used to describe a range of non-medical care services that are provided to individuals in their own homes. It is also known as Non-Medical Care or Custodial Care. These services are designed to help individuals with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, transferring, using the toilet, eating, walking, and any other self-care activities.
Types of Home Care Services
Home Care services are typically categorized into two types: medical and non-medical. Medical home care services are provided by licensed medical professionals, such as nurses and therapists, whereas non-medical home care services are provided by caregivers, certified nursing aides (CNAs), and home health aides (HHAs).
Non-medical home care services include companion care, personal care, Dementia care, housekeeping, and any other non-medical care services that cover ADLs. Companion care involves providing social interaction and emotional support to individuals who may be feeling lonely or isolated. Personal care involves assisting individuals with personal hygiene and grooming activities, such as bathing, dressing, and grooming. Dementia care involves providing specialized care to individuals with memory loss and cognitive impairments. Housekeeping involves performing light housekeeping duties, such as laundry, vacuuming, and dusting.
Non-Medical home care is considered long-term care, which is NOT covered by Medicare. Long-term care is provided to individuals who require assistance with daily activities for an extended period of time. This type of care is typically provided in the individual's home or in a long-term care facility.
