It is very important to note that the “In Home Care” and “Home Health Care” are two very separate jobs. It would be advisable to first call your agency and explain your needs to them before simply picking a random company.
In home care typically sends over caregivers that will offer their services in terms of your daily routines such as medical reminders, bathing, changing linens, cleaning and organizing, preparation of meals etc.
Whereas “Home Health Care” is more technical and medically associated. It does not cater for the duties a caregiver in Home care would discharge, rather, their services offered are more clinical. Their job leans more towards administering and managing client medication.
Although an “In home caregiver” is already trained with first aid, that does not qualify them for the services that a nurse will give when they are providing in – house home treatment.
It would be extremely advisable to first call an agent and narrate your needs to him so that he can help you decide. Also, you should note that Home Health Care is actually more expensive. You will be able to note this as soon as your agent sends you quotes.
