Understanding Different Types of Home Care For Seniors

We know that each family’s situation is unique, so it is important to be aware of the type of care that your loved one may need.  Companies that are either companion care agencies or licensed home care agencies provide most private home care. 

Services provided by each type of agency:

  1. Companion Care:

    1. Includes dementia care
    2. Client can at least stand, bear weight and transfer
    3. Some companies can provide transportation
    4. May need someone to stay with them during a shower
    5. May need medication reminders
    6. Any time day or night
  1. Licensed Home Care:

    1. Can lift and transfer patients
    2. Sometimes the type of care received after discharge from a hospital or rehab
    3. Skilled care ex/ from a Home Health Aide for showering
    4. Hands-on care

Consumers need to educate themselves on the differences in types of companies, so that they do not put their loved one at risk.  A companion care company should not be lifting patients or providing hands-on care.  

Finding the fit that is right for your family is key, and Happier At Home can help determine that.  When you contact us, we will ask a series of questions to determine if our care is appropriate for your situation.  If we are not, then we will give you are resource to choose another company that is a good fit for you and your family.
