The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) invites everyone to recognize November as Home Care and Hospice Month, which celebrates the millions of caregivers, therapists, and healthcare workers who make a positive difference for their patients and families. Their commitment enables patients to receive quality healthcare and companionship, while offering a peace of mind and assistance to families.

If you’re considering home care services for yourself or a family member, read on for more information about compassionate home care.

What is Home Care?

In-home care services allow older, injured, chronically ill, and/or disabled individuals to live securely in the comfort of their own homes. Patients and their families can rest assured that professional caregivers are attending to daily needs on a short-term or long-term basis. In turn, patients can maintain a sense of independence and forego unnecessary in-patient care.

What Can Home Care Providers Do?

Home care services may include: 

  • Personal care;  grooming & bathing
  • Meal prep & feeding
  • Light housekeeping
  • Grocery shopping
  • Mobility assistance & fall prevention
  • Transportation
  • Daily reminders to take medications
  • Therapy and rehabilitative services
  • Nursing care
  • Supervision
  • Companionship & socialization

 If you find it’s more difficult to accomplish daily tasks, run errands, or manage your healthcare, a home care attendant can help you maintain your way of life and daily routines. Caregivers take the time to consider your individual needs and preferences so you can live comfortably and safely.
