What Is In-Home Skilled Care And How Does It Function?

What Is In-Home Skilled Care And How Does It Function?

In-home skilled care goes above the standard services offered with other types of care. It’s not always necessary but when it is, having an in-home option for skilled care is always a huge benefit.

How In-Home Care Works.

You can receive a plethora of services by the staff of caregivers working at assisted living communities and other senior living facilities. But many seniors prefer to remain living in their own private homes. This is possible thanks to in-home care. In-home care is almost always cheaper than moving into a senior living community, it is often preferable to the senior in question because of an emotional attachment they have with their home, and it’s just more convenient.

In-home care covers personal care, homemaking services, and companion care. Personal care helps seniors with the Activities of Daily Living. Such activities include dental and denture care, showering, grooming, using the toilet, getting in and out of bed, getting up and down stairs, eating, and any other task one must do to take care of oneself. Homemaking services help seniors manage their homes by taking care of tasks such as cleaning kitchens and bathrooms, vacuuming, doing laundry, and more. Companion care helps seniors with their mental and emotional health. But what happens when a senior’s needs go beyond these?

What Is In-Home Skilled Care?

All of the above services are offered by caregivers. The caregivers employed by Executive Care must pass a comprehensive pre-employment screening and are bonded, insured, and are closely supervised. All of this is to say, they know what they are doing. But they are not medical professionals. Registered nurses are, and sometimes a senior needs the help of a medical professional. Usually, this means having to go to a hospital or clinic, but with in-home skilled care, a nurse can visit you in your own home and provide skilled care as needed.

How Does In-Home Skilled Care Work?

In-home skilled care can’t possibly cover all the work a registered nurse can do, but it does cover quite a lot of ground. With in-home skilled care, a registered nurse can provide:

  • Assessments & Consultations
  • Medication Management
  • Simple Wound Care
  • Diabetes Care & Teaching
  • Colostomy Care
  • Feeding Tube Care
  • Foley Care
  • And more!

Not all in-home skilled care services are necessarily available in all fifty states. Please talk with us to find out if the in-home skilled services in which you are interested are available in the area where you are located.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
