Kind, friendly home health nurse taking her patient's pulse.  Both are smiling.As the old saying goes, there’s no place like home. Home is where you’re surrounded by the things that make you feel most comfortable – your bed, your favorite chair, your pictures, your memories. If a loved one is recovering from an illness or injury, being home means a decreased risk of infection and a better quality of life. It can also save money.

According to the National Care Planning Council, up to 73% of long term care at home is provided by a non-paid caregiver, typically a relative or spouse. But many patients require more assistance and professional, skilled caregivers can help with needs including:

  • Lifting
  • Walking
  • Bathing
  • Toileting
  • Dressing
