Kentucky - Home Care

When a senior reaches a point where living at home is no longer a safe options, many families begin discussing other living options. Some choose nursing homes or assisted living facilities, but other families prefer to have their loved one "age in place." An alternative to senior housing options isHome Care, a service in which visiting nurses assist seniors with medical treatment or daily activities.  There are two types of home care - skilled medical home care and non-medical home care.  Seniors who require medical treatment on a daily basis are best served by skilled medical home care which can include quite intensive care ranging from infusion therapy to wound care.  If the required assistance is more of a personal care nature, like dressing, bathing, or even light grocery shopping or cleaning, then non-medical home care is an option.
