Oregon - Home Care

Many seniors are reluctant to leave the comforts of their own home and move into an unfamiliar residential care facility. This transition is not necessary for all seniors-some elect to receive care in the comfort of their own home.

Home Care is an option for seniors to remain at home with help. Two kinds of home care assist seniors requiring different levels of care in their homes. For seniors who are able to live at home but require some help with personal care, light housekeeping, or running errands, then non-medical home care is the best option. Home care aides will assist the senior with many tasks, but do not offer medical services. If your loved one requires medical care as well as personal care, skilled medical home care is an option. Visiting nurses will come to your loved one's home to administer medical services like injections, wound care, or pain relief. This is a great option for a senior who might require the high-level medical care of a nursing home, but not the constant monitoring.
