Can I Get Skilled Nursing Care At Home?

As many of us age, we will require skilled nursing care. This is not necessarily a bad thing, it is just a fact of aging. But what is the best way to address it. Many families reflexively begin looking at nursing home websites. But more and more, families are availing themselves of in-home skilled nursing care. Yes, it is available. And the services on offer might just be more all encompassing and cost-effective than you may think.

Personal care

Personal care is a great option for many seniors. With personal care, a senior can remain living in his or her home while caregivers visit at regular intervals an assist with the activities of daily life. Such assistance includes: encouraging seniors to perform normal body movements and to follow prescribed exercise programs, assistance with positioning in bed, wheelchair and other chairs, and assistance with transferring to/from bed, wheelchair, toilet and chair, as well as many more.

Live-in care

With live-in care, a caregiver will stay in the home 24 hours a day and is available to assist as needed. The assigned caregiver will provide personal, social, and domestic in-home care and supervision at the level that is appropriate for you or your family member. These live-in care services are also designed to help with the activities of daily living.
