Minnesota - Home Care

As a senior ages, very often a time comes when they can no longer live at home safely or without some help. Senior care facilities are a good option for some families at this point, but other families prefer to let their senior live at home as long as possible. For these families, Home Care is an alternative to senior housing.

What is Home Care?

Home care allows a senior to live at home while visiting nurses or home care aides help them with activities of daily living. Two options are available to seniors: skilled medical home care and non-medical home care. Visiting nurses provide medical services like medication administration or pain relief to individuals who need medical assistance. This skilled medical home care allows for a high level of care in the individual's home setting. If your loved one does not need medical services but requires assistance with daily tasks like bathing, dressing, cooking, or grocery shopping, then non-medical home are is the best fit.
