What is non-medical home care?
It is providing assisted personal, not medical care to include bathing, grooming, toileting, nutritional assistance, etc. to those in need, while in the comfort of their own home. Usually the process involves an initial meeting between the home-care provider and patient to determine their personal wants and needs and then develop a customized care plan.
Who is eligible for non-medical home care services?
Great question, as many believe this care is only limited to the elderly. Anyone wanting or needing assistance with personal care services at any age is eligible to receive non-medical home care services. Please note, you do NOT need authorization from a health care provider.
