Senior home care is the term used for an individualized, comprehensive range of services aimed at helping senior adults and their caregivers maintain senior independence. It encompasses both residential and companion care, and senior, assisted living. Senior home care usually means a combination of skilled and non-skilled nursing care services which allow senior adults and their caregivers to live as independently as possible in their residences. Companion care can also provide this important ongoing senior home care support.
Who Is Eligible For An Occupancy Only Certified Live-In Aide?
A live-in aide is someone who lives with one or more disabled, elderly, or aged persons, and whom is crucial to the well being and care of that person. The live-in aide is never legally obligated to assist the individual in any way and would never be staying in the same unit as the individual except to supply the needed services. The duties of a live-in aid include but are not limited to bathing, cooking, and errand running. However, most live-in aids are on a voluntary basis and they are usually paid on an individual basis.
