Home care began in the US in the 1880’s. Approximately 12 million individuals currently receive care from more than 33,000 providers, in their own home. In Home Care typically falls into two categories:
Personal Care - Involves physical contact such as bathing, showering, dressing,
walking, personal hygiene, toileting, physical therapy, etc...
Companion Care - Is a range of services that might include someone to take a walk
with or play games with, transportation services, meal
preparation, medicine management, cleaning services, laundry
For older adults who are recovering from surgery, illness, or need assistance at home; hiring an in-home caregiver can be a lifesaver. Home care aides provide assistance with daily living activities, comfort, support, meals, transportation, cleaning, laundry, and coordinate care between home, family members, doctors, and the hospital. Home care agencies offer 24/7 live in home health aide support and also offer assistance by the hour.
Private duty home care is just a sub-set of general home care. Caregivers can provide a broad range of services, from medical and nursing care to bill paying and transportation services. Their goal is to provide whatever the senior and their family needs in order for them to remain independent in their own homes.
Private duty nursing is the care of clients by nurses, who may be licensed as RNs (Registered Nurses) or LPNs/LVNs (Licensed Practical Nurses). Most nurses who provide private duty care work one-on-one with individual clients.
