Care Providers

At some point in your caregiving journey, you may need a professional partner — such as a nursing home, assisted living, home health, hospice or adult day care. When considering care providers, you need to weigh the options and ask the right questions to ensure that both you and your loved one feel good about whatever arrangements you make.

Home Health

This is the most flexible of all the options: A professional caregiver will come into your home and provide whatever services you need, whether it's help with everyday household chores or round-the-clock care for your loved one. A home health-care agency will supply caregivers with the appropriate skills and training to perform needed tasks.
