Eldercare Providers (Home Care and Assisted Living)

Eldercare ProvidersHome Care is health care or supportive care provided in the patient's home by healthcare professionals. Often, the term home care is used to distinguish non-medical care or custodial care, which is care that is provided by persons who are not nurses, doctors, or other licensed medical personnel, whereas the term home health care, refers to care that is provided by licensed personnel.

Assisted living fills a gap between home care and nursing homes. Before assisted living, a person needing professional care went to a nursing home even though the care didn't always merit the intensive supervision. The fairly new alternative of assisted living provides a more homelike environment for people needing or anticipating help with activities of daily living but for which 24-hour nursing care is not a necessity.
