Senior Home Care Orlando Patient Advocate, Navigator or Health Advocate
What is Senior Home Care?
Ongoing home care services, considered to be custodial or supportive care, are usually provided by individuals such as home health aides, homemakers, and companions. Home health aides are trained to provide hands-on care and assistance to people in their homes who need help with ADLs (bathing, dressing, transferring, eating, toileting, or continence). They are also able to help with needed tasks such as cooking, shopping, and laundry.
Homemakers or companions provide services that include light housekeeping, meal preparation, transportation, and companionship. This type of care is often appropriate for those with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia who may be physically healthy but require supervision. Homemakers and companions are not trained to provide hands-on assistance with ADLs such as bathing and dressing.
About 8 in 10 (82%) of the home health care agencies surveyed provide Alzheimer’s training to their employees, and almost all (99%) agencies surveyed do not charge an additional fee for patients with Alzheimer’s. About 3 in 10 (31%) of the agencies surveyed have a 24-hour or live-in rate.
