elder care frequently asked questionsWhat Is Home Care?

In it’s most fundamental meaning, home care refers to any type of care: skilled or non-skilled, that is provided in the patient’s residence, such as their home, assisted living facility, etc.. At Boca Home Care Services we facilitate the non-skilled home health aide and at Boca Home Care we provide the skilled component such as Skilled Nursing, Physical Therapist, Speech Therapist and Occupational Therapist.

 

Residing In Home Vs A Facility

Many times, and at the right time, a facility is the answer for a person for their living arrangements. However, home care gives people the option of staying in their home and receiving the care there. At Boca Home Care Services, a private aide, many times covered by your long term care insurance, is able to help with Activities of Daily Living, to maintain your security and independence in your home. And with Boca Home Care, our Medicare Certified Agency, you can receive covered at 100%, the skilled services that your doctor prescribes such as Nursing, Physical or Occupational therapy.
