Maryland - Home Care

When a senior wants to live at home, but needs some assistance with daily tasks, in-home care becomes a great option. Home care exists in two types, medical and non-medical, and there are a few differences between these two types of home care, but in the end, they are both a great way for a senior to receive the help they need in the comfort of their own home.

Medical home care is the best option for a senior who requires highly involved medical treatment on a daily basis. Medical home caregivers provide pain relief, infusion therapy, wound care, medication, and more. Non-medical home care is carried out by a visiting caregiver, but is less of a treatment service and more of an assistive service. Non-medical home caregivers offer various services, including (but not limited to) bathing and dressing assistance, walking assistance, feeding and food preparation, help with errands plus other household chores, as well as general companionship.
