Home care can get you the assistance you need — from running errands to receiving physical therapy — to stay in the place you love, with a schedule that suits you.
What is home care?
See the tabs below for the services home care may include:
Sometimes referred to as private duty care, non-medical home care helps with daily tasks like meal preparation, light housekeeping, personal hygiene or errands.
If you need help after surgery or just a little extra attention, this option is for you.
At the Good Samaritan Society, we call this level of home care Services@Home.
Skilled nursing care
In-home skilled nursing care, which is often called home healthcare, can provide the medical care you may find in assisted living or nursing home settings.
Everyday tasks like meal preparation and light housekeeping services are still available, but so are specialized services like wound care, medication administration, and physical, occupational and speech therapies.
Telehealth can help you and your physician keep track of everything from blood pressure and pulse, to weight management and medication reminders.
Personal emergency response systems can call emergency services with the push of a button; some wearable pendants may also help detect if you've fallen and need assistance.
Sensor technologies can help you be proactive about your health by looking at activity and sleep patterns to detect potential issues before they become major problems.
