How Can Home Care Help?

In-home care provides support to older adults who want to live safely, comfortably and as independently as possible in their homes. Medical and non-medical caregivers can be present for several hours or days or for around-the-clock live-in care. Many times, it’s as simple as needing an extra pair of hands to assist the activities of daily life. Over the years, the amount of needed help may grow. 

Personal and social needs…

• Companionship and socializing
• Hygiene and personal care
• Help with medications

Needs around the house… 

• Meal prep and eating right
• Light housekeeping and laundry
• Shopping, errands, transportation

Who Needs Home Care? 

Seniors in many situations and from different walks of life will benefit from a caregiver’s assistance as it supports their wellness, helps keeps them engaged and active and improves their quality of life. Family members also benefit from knowing their elder loved ones are living at home with the support they need. Alvita’s home care provides many comforts and benefits that senior-living communities are unable to match. Clients who commonly benefit from home care include:

Older adults dealing with a medical condition or those returning home after a hospital stay

People cared for by family members who need a periodic break to rest

Understanding the Costs of Home Care

Most people considering the costs of professional home care are weighing it against an independent caregiver or a senior living community. Compared to the fixed costs of senior living, home care gives you far greater control. With us, what you pay is connected to the hours in the Care Plan you choose. Although most of our clients pay out-of-pocket, we accept long-term care insurance and can assist you with claim forms.   While the day rate of a private caregiver may appear lower, you have more responsibilities, less coordination and there’s no backup. If the person is ill or has an emergency, your loved one has no care. With us, back-ups are available, our people are trained and we are licensed, bonded and insured. There’s a level of professionalism and accountability that you only have with Alvita Care’s professional team.
