If you plan to stay at home but know you will need Home Healthcare Services to help you with day-to-day personal care, you may want to look at the options available to you through home care agencies. As dictated by the recipient’s health, home care agencies can provide healthcare at home as well as part-time, temporary specialized or skilled nursing care. Many home care agencies offer assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing and eating and assistance with instrumental activities of daily living such as changing bed linens or light housekeeping.

Nursing Facilities represent the most traditional mode of delivering long-term care services and are the most regulated providers of healthcare services today. Recent trends in healthcare reform have changed the services offered in nursing facilities and types of care received by residents. The types of residents living in nursing facilities often require higher levels of care and a skilled staff. A number of nursing facilities have begun specializing in the types of residents that they serve. Some nursing facilities specialize in providing sub-acute care to persons dependent on a ventilator. Others offer rehabilitative care or pediatric care. Nursing facilities are care facilities for those who no longer need hospital care but require nursing services that make them unable to live at home or in a more residential environment. Sometimes a hospital may provide this service in a Long-Term Care Unit of their facility.
