What is Home Care?

Home care encompasses a wide range of health and social services. These services are delivered at home to individuals who are recovering, disabled, or chronically ill needing medical, nursing, social, or therapeutic treatment and/or assistance with activities of daily living (such as bathing, dressing, getting out of bed, etc.)

Home Care is appropriate whenever an individual prefers to stay at home, but requires treatment and care that cannot be easily or effectively provided by family and friends.
