In-home assistance provides different types of skilled or non-skilled nursing care, physical therapy, and home health aides. These health care professionals and aides help with activities of daily living (ADL), including bathing, dressing, cooking and laundry. In-home assistants will help with meal preparation and grocery shopping, provide transportation to doctor’s offices and other therapy appointments, and even help with home modification if you need wheelchair access. Some housekeeping services will come by regularly to help you maintain your home if you are physically limited. There are organizations that provide access to people who come by to visit you, making sure that you are well and taking the prescribed drugs your doctor has given to you. Whether you receive assistance from long-term care insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, PACE, or Area Agencies on Aging, you can find many local and state services to help you with your in-home needs.
