In-Home Care Program
What is In-Home Care
In-Home care is an array of services provided on a part-time
or intermittent basis to individuals who are medically and
financially approved. Clients are accepted regardless of
race, creed, age, sex, or physical handicap.
In-Home Care promotes self-care, independence, and dignity.
In-Home Care helps maintain a stable home and family life.
In-Home Care is usually less expensive than hospital and nursing
Services are provided by licensed and trained professionals. All providers are trained and qualified Home Health Aides, Certified Nursing Assistant, or Homemaker Aides. All care givers are CPR and First Aid certified and required to attend a minimum of 32 hours of training. Providers also receive 8 hours of continuing education each year.
Our homemakers, which are supervised by our registered nurse, can assist with complete personal care needs. Some functions may include: shampoo/ hair care, bathing/ dental care, routine skin care, preparing meals, dishes/ laundry, light housekeeping, simple range of motion (ROM) exercises, treatments that do not require professional care such as changing non-sterile dressing, transportation for medical appointments and out-patient medical treatment, grocery shopping, community activities, and adult life skills.
