Hello friends,

Home care aims to make it possible for people to remain at home rather than use residential, long-term, or institutional-based nursing care. Home care providers render services in the client's own home. These services may include some combination of professional health care services and life assistance services. Professional home health services could include medical or psychological assessment, wound care, medication teaching, pain management, disease education and management, physical therapy, speech therapy, or occupational therapy. Life assistance services include help with daily tasks such as meal preparation, medication reminders, laundry, light housekeeping, errands, shopping, transportation, and companionship. Home care is often an integral component of the post-hospitalization recovery process, especially during the initial weeks after discharge when the patient still requires some level of regular physical assistance.

Thanks and Regards
Michael Ellgren

Of course, providing home care facilities to our elders will bring a lot of comforts in their lives. As their are some very well organized old age homes providing all necessary and luxuries to elders, which they really need to live comfortably. Along with 24/7 nursing facility.
