    Oct 22, 2018 | Posted by the Editor, SeniorInsider

    Senior home health care offer a wide range of services which can be done in the comfort and familiar surroundings of your own home. Overall, senior home health care can be less expensive, more convenient, and every bit as effective as what you would receive in a skilled nursing facility. The ultimate goal of senior home health care is to treat your illness or injury, as well as your recovery from an illness or surgery, while helping you to regain your independence. Senior home health strives to return you to your previous level of self-sufficiency, or, in some cases, teach you to deal with a lesser level of independence.

  • What is home care?

    Oct 22, 2018 | Posted by the Editor, SeniorInsider

    Home care is a seemingly simple phrase which encompasses a myriad of health and social services.  The majority of these home care services are devoted to delivering in-home help to those elderly disabled or ill seniors who need medical, nursing or social treatments as well as assistance with day-to-day living activities. For seniors who want to remain in their own home, but need a type of ongoing care which family and friends are unable to provide, home care agencies can be an invaluable resource. More and more elderly are choosing to age in place with the help of home care, allowing them a non-institutionalized life with dignity and independence.
