Important Terms Associated With Home Care Services

Home care services provide an alternative to nursing home care for the elderly. But they are not used exclusively by seniors. Anyone with a medical condition that requires nursing care can benefit from receiving medical assistance at home. The task of hiring a nurse or medical caregiver to tend to the needs of a loved one or relative can be difficult. However, these companions also provide a much-needed respite for other members of the family. Here are some terms to help understand the options available.

  • Private Nurse – Anyone who has passed the professional qualifications required for nursing, but is not attached to an institution such as a hospital. A private nurse can provide health care assistance to seniors or the disabled in their home on a fee-for-service basis. Their services may include therapy, preparation of meals with dietary restrictions, medical examinations, making sure medication is taken, and personal support and assistance.
  • Caregiver – A professional caregiver may perform many of the same duties as a private nurse, but may not have the medical qualifications of a nurse or doctor.
  • Home Hospice – Hospice care refers to the treatment given to a patient in the final stages of a terminal illness. To make a patient more comfortable, and as a respite from costly institutional health care bills, some families opt for a home hospice arrangement.
  • Assisted Living – A facility such as a nursing home that provides care to individuals based on their needs. The most common services provided are nursing, housekeeping and meals.

    Home healthcare and medical services can be important if you are caring for a senior. If you don't want to put your loved one into a nursing facility, home healthcare may be the answer for you. You can use the internet to look up popular medical services for seniors in the area. It is important to read the feedback and reviews on each service. Another great way to find a home health aid for the sick adult in your life, is to consult with the elder's current doctor for a recommendation. The doctor may be able to put you in touch with a hospice service or another community agency that can provide home nurses. It is important to interview the potential caregiver to make sure they are a good match for your family member. If your loved one is not a good medicine taker, you want someone who is good with people and will be able to help your family member take medications on time. It is also important to remember that this person will be spending a lot of time with your loved one. In addition to being a private nurse, your family member may also consider this person a companion who she can talk to. It is good to have someone who is personable and loving. A caregiver can provide support to your family when it comes to bath time, meal time and entertaining your loved one. If your family member is on a strict diet for medical reasons, the agency representative can make sure that your loved one does not sneak sugary sweets. If you normally like to care for your loved one yourself, but need temporary assistance for a business trip or personal crisis, you can call respite care. Respite care is available to help with short term nursing care situations.
