Geriatric home care is rooted in the principle that older adults should be free to age at home with the level of care they need to be safe and comfortable. To that end, most home care providers work hard to ensure that their aging clients are able to live as independently as possible while receiving the care they need to maintain a high quality of life. In its simplest terms, home care means assistance with activities of daily living and household tasks. Ideally, home care also provides meaningful companionship for older adults and peace of mind for their families.

Our population is aging rapidly, and with an aging population comes an increased need for robust, long-term care options, particularly given that the great majority of older adults report a strong desire to age in their own homes rather than move to an assisted living facility or other institution.  There is an increasing demand and need for practical advice and guidance in matters related to aging. Being well-informed about the options that are available is the best way to make sure that you are choosing the appropriate geriatric care option.

Home care typically refers to non-medical services that help a senior live and thrive at home. These services include but are not limited to meal preparation, medication reminders, companionship, bathing assistance, transportation, dementia care, transferring and more. In response to the need for easy to understand, transparent information about in-home care—a long-term care option that is revolutionizing how we age and our quality of life in aging—we authored What Is Home Care, a brief guide written to help you understand and navigate your in-home care options.
