In-Home Care Options

Home care is an umbrella term used to describe companion care, home care (non-medical), and home health care (medical), each of which can be provided at home to make aging easier.

What Is In-Home Care?

There’s no place like home, right? Hey, moving into a retirement community isn’t for everyone; that’s why many people choose to receive care from the comfort of their own home through in-home care agencies.

In-home care refers to three different types of care that can be provided right at home; each one offers different services – depending on your needs – but they all make aging in place that much easier.
