Senior Home Services

 

QUICK OVERVIEW – non-medical care: A Home Health Agency (HHA) is usually the provider of non-medical senior home services at one’s place of residence. These homecare workers are trained caregivers who provide companionship, custodial care, and are also for keeping a safe physical environment for the person receiving care in their own home.

APPROPRIATE FOR: Seniors who are able to take their own medicines and who are mentally alert, need minimal assistance with their Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), and who are able to move throughout the house, even with a walker, cane, scooter or wheelchair.
