Hiring Home Care – Pt. 1 of 3

When should someone hire home care help?


If your loved one needs assistance with medication, bathing, dressing, cooking, housekeeping, transportation, or other daily activities, and you can’t always be there to help, you might want to consider hiring a home care worker. Before you consider hiring help, ask yourself a few questions. How long do you need the services? Will half a day be enough? Until you get home from work? Round-the-clock care? What type of care would be best for you and your loved one?


It is important to note that:


  1. A housekeeper or chore worker performs basic household tasks and light cleaning.


  1. A homemaker or personal care worker provides personal care, meal planning,

household management, and medication reminders.


  1. A companion or live-in provides personal care, light housework, exercise, companionship, and medication reminders.
