In-Home Care Guide

Comprehensive information about In Home Care

In-home care is a good alternative for seniors who are not yet ready to move into a senior housing community, but require some form of assistance with the activities of daily living such as showering, dressing, eating, etc.

In-home caregivers can provide hourly or round-the-clock support for seniors who prefer to age in place at home. They can help with transportation to medical appointments, supermarkets, and social obligations. They also help seniors with housekeeping chores such as running errands, cleaning laundry, and preparing meals.

Caregivers are trained to keep designated family members in the loop when it comes to caring for their aging loved ones. They will keep track of medication administration, rehabilitation and other status updates for family members and other caregivers who may live far away.

There are a multitude of in-home care agencies providing care for families in need of assistance for an aging loved one. Seniorly has partnered with some of the best home care providers in the business to provide you with superlative senior care recommendations in your preferred area.

The type of care that’s right for your family will depend on your aging loved one’s needs, budget, and preferences. Our gerontologist can provide a free consultation over the phone or in person to provide an analysis of your current situation and offer recommendations for in-home care.

If your family is interested in finding in-home care services to support an aging loved one, email us at ask@seniorly.com and we would be happy to provide you with our top suggestions.
