Home Care & Hospice Services

Why Home Care?
As an alternative to moving from one’s home, many seniors would prefer to have the care come to them. Home Care may be contracted to provide services in a senior’s home, apartment and oftentimes in an independent living senior housing setting.

What is the NAHC?
The National Association for Home Care and Hospice is the largest trade organization representing home care and hospice agencies

The NAHC Agency Locator allows users to find NAHC member agencies in their area. These service providers include:
  • Home care agencies,
  • Hospices,
  • Home care aide organizations,
  • Medical equipment suppliers.

More about NAHC and home care
The National Association for Home Care and Hospice has identified several types of services that home care providers offer. Among them are medical services provided by physicians, registered nurses (RN), licensed nurse practitioners (LPN), and physical therapists which are generally referred to as Home Health Services. These services typically include wound care, respiratory care, physical, occupational and speech therapy, intravenous or nutrition therapy, injections and monitoring serious illness as well as ongoing health status.

Non-medical services provided in the home include assistance with activities of daily living (ADL) and chore services, These services are ideal for seniors that require assistance with personal care, grocery shopping, light housekeeping, cooking, etc. and desire to age in place.. Non-medical support services may or may not be accompanied by professionals who perform monitoring for an acute or chronic medical condition. In addition, home health aids may be contracted as companions to provide the human interaction and oversight support for peace of mind for the senior and their family.
