Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between in-home senior care and home health care?

keyboard_arrow_down

Home care is a broad term used to describe several forms of care provided in-home. Generally, it covers personal care (bathing, dressing, toileting, feeding, transferring, grooming), homemaking services (light house keeping and chores) and companionship services, which may include personal shopping, transportation, and socialization. In-home senior care is paid privately, whereas home health care is prescribed by a physician and covered by Medicare or supplemental insurance providers.
