What is Homecare?

Home care is care that allows a person with special needs to stay in their home. It might be for people who are getting older, are chronically ill, recovering from surgery, or disabled. Home care services include:

  • Personal care, such as help with bathing, washing your hair, or getting dressed

  • Homemaking, such as cleaning, yard work, and laundry

  • Cooking or delivering meals

  • Health care, such as having a home health aide come to your home

How is Home Care different from Skilled Care?

Skilled Care are services that require the skills of a registered nurse (RN), a licensed vocational nurse (LVN), or licensed therapists such as Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Speech Therapists. Examples of skilled nursing care include: giving IV drugs, medication injections, or tube feedings; changing dressings; and teaching about prescription drugs or diabetes care.

 

Any service that could be done safely and effectively by a non-medical person (or by yourself ) without the supervision of a nurse isn’t skilled nursing care.
