Understanding Non-Medical Home Care
Non-medical home care refers to the care given by the non-medical attendants. By the term ‘non-medical’ we describe persons who are not formally trained to provide medical care. Medical care is a prescribed practice and requires proper formal education, training and medical practice. However, at a basic level, to cater to the elderly and special needs persons at homes, non-medical care providers are hired to serve them on an everyday basis. The non- medical care givers provide personal care, attend to the serious patients, maintain hygiene and medication and provide assistance in taking care of those who are dependent entirely on others physically. Senior Home Care provides the service of non-medical home care to such patients taking off the responsibility from the shoulders of the dependents while providing a proper and cooperative service to the patients.
Why non-medical home care is needed?
Non-medical home care is required for patients who are suffering from terminal or severe diseases with long term impacts or severity. Such patients do not always need hospitalization or facility care but only a proper and regular care at homes to keep their diseases at bay.
Amid the hectic work routines, most of us do not find ample time to take care of our elderly or patients 24/7. Leaving those on their own is often not advisable or feasible. Hiring a full time maid or nurse is also often not affordable for many. Therefore, hiring a service for a time period when you are not around, at work or traveling is a viable option which is not as expensive as a full time nursing service and provides you a chance to supervise the care of your elderly yourself as per your desire and manage your work routines alongside as well.
