Home Care – A Growing Trend

Home Care – A Growing Trend

Home Care is the care of a non-relative, usually a caregiver, whom the person does not live with or frequently visits. It differs from in-patient care in that the care given is not usually secure and may not be as ongoing as in-patient care. Home care is generally referred to as personal care or domestic caregiver care. This has been especially true for seniors who require assistance with daily activities but do not require extensive medical care on an outpatient basis.Checkout Motherly Comfort Home Care Rancho Cucamonga – Claremont, Upland for more info.

Currently, according to the U.S. Census, more than two-thirds of adults (nearly 62%) have at least one type of disability or illness that limits their ability to earn a living. This is particularly true of less educated people, women and minorities, which are typically over-represented in certain areas and industries. Because more people are living with physical limitations, the need for home care is on the rise. The national average for in-home caregiver expenses is approximately $13,500 per year, or about two-thirds the national average for income in households.

Some states, such as Florida, allow services for qualified persons with disabilities to be provided at home. Other states, such as Illinois, do not allow services to be provided unless licensed by a state board. Other services or goods may be provided as part of an assisted living or skilled nursing facility contract. Services covered by these contracts include: bathing, eating, toileting, companionship, transportation, shopping, dialysis, medicine administration, medications, emergency or medical care, and related activities of daily living.
