5. How do I choose a home care provider? 

 
When faced with the challenge of finding a qualified individual who can provide care when it's needed and at a fair price, it is important to know and understand your options. There are many caregiver choices available and these decisions can often become confusing and frustrating. When selecting a homecare provider, it is important to ask questions and make an informed decision based on your specific needs.

8. What is the difference between "skilled" and "unskilled" medical care? 

 
"Unskilled" or "Non-medical" care typically refers to companion and personal care activities such as bathing, grooming, dressing, as well as assistance with meal preparation, light housekeeping, and running errands. It could also include medication reminders, assistance with ambulation, and transportation to medical appointments. These types of services are typically provided by Home Health Aides (HHAs) or Personal Care Aides (PCAs), and can be arranged for anywhere from a few hours to 24-hours a day. "Unskilled" or "Non-medical" care is often sought by the elderly, new and expectant parents, individuals with disabilities, and those transitioning from a hospital or medical facility to home. 
 
"Skilled" medical care follows a specific plan of care under the supervision of a Physician, Nurse (RN/LPN/LVN), or Therapist, and involves home healthcare services such as nursing care; physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapies; as well as social services and hospice care. Skilled medical care in the home can help provide a comforting solution to residing in a hospital, nursing home, or assisted living community.

11. What are the benefits of home care?

Most individuals would rather be home than in a heath care facility. As long as they do not need constant supervision or intensive medical treatment, these individuals are usually happier and more comfortable in the familiar surroundings of their homes. In addition, home care is less costly than traditional, institutional care.
