What is Private Care?
Private care services help you or your loved ones in continuing to live safely and independently at home. Many people need additional assistance beyond services covered by medical insurance, whether it's help with daily living or short-term care as you recover from surgery or a hospitalization.
Private care can work in addition to existing home health services, hospice, and care at assisted living or senior care facilities.
Private Care services include:
- Caregivers: the caregivers provide non-medical day-to-day support to help clients live at home safely, including: bathing, grooming, eating assistance, exercise and medication reminders.
- Dementia Care: the highly trained caregivers have special expertise to provide especially sensitive and compassionate care to clients with dementia or Alzheimer’s.
- Geriatric Care Management: the care managers provide coordination of care to other services, and can act as a liaison and advocate to your doctor and health team.
Private Care may be right for your family if:
- Assistance is needed to continue living independently at home, due to advanced age, or physical or mental decline or disability.
- Relief is needed for the primary caregiver or family members who need to balance the stress of caregiving with the rest of their lives.
- Family members may live far away or lack the training or specialized skills to provide proper ongoing care.
- Temporary support is needed to recover after a surgery, hospitalization or other medical event.
- Additional assistance is beneficial at a senior care or assisted living facility.
