What Home Care Services Do We Provide
When considering home care it is important to take into account whether your loved one needs medical or non-medical care. Medical in-home care is designed to treat an acute medical condition and usually entails complicated, sterile or invasive procedures. Some examples are duties such as; post-surgery activities, wound care, catheterization, feeding tube support, ventilation assistance or injections. Even though we recommend that families work with a skilled home health care company for medical in-home care services, this does not mean we cannot help you.
The main difference between medical in-home care and non-medical in-home care is that with non-medical care you get to call the shots. Medical in-home care visits are brief and cannot be customized to an individual's full needs. With non-medical in-home care, through Affordable HomeCare, your loved one receives truly customized care any time they need it.
Affordable HomeCare provides a wide range of services for our clients who need help with their activities of daily living. Often the ill and elderly need an extra pair of hands to remain independent in their own home. That's where the experienced staff at Affordable HomeCare come in. To allow your loved one the ability to remain independent we provide assistance with the activities of daily living listed below.
Shared meals, companionship and conversation, brings smiles to faces. This socialization enhances health, happiness and quality of life.
