In-home care is the fastest growing service industry in the country today. With the ever-aging population and the strong desire of seniors to continue living in their own homes, Home Care Agencies are struggling to keep up with the demands of the growing elderly population.
There are two kinds of Home Care that tend to be confused: Home Health Care and In-Home Care. Home Health Care means “skilled nursing care” and can be provided, at least in California, only by a licensed nursing company, whose services may or may not include “In-Home Care”. Home Health Care is generally Physician prescribed and services include:
- Medication administration and management
- Skilled Nursing Care
- Rehabilitation Services
In-Home Care includes only non-medical assistance such as:
- Assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s)
- Cooking and meal preparation
- Bathing assistance
- Light Housekeeping
- Transportation to and from appointments
- Medication reminders (but not administration)
Sequoia Senior Solutions provides the personal, one-on-one, non-medical care and assistance that so many seniors, and their families, are looking for. It is the “peace of mind” and assurance they get from our Caregivers that is at the heart of the service we provide.
More and more people are electing to live independent, non-institutionalized, lives. The services of In-Home Care Agencies such as Sequoia Senior Solutions make that possible.
