Not only has technology enabled us to live longer, healthier lives, but when illness does strike technological advances have provided us with more care options. When an illness or medical condition does occur, In-home care is the preference of many individuals. Interim HealthCare’s home health care services offers convenient access to trained professionals who are knowledgeable in the areas of senior care, as well as physical, occupational and speech therapy.


Home Care is provided by two groups of healthcare professionals: nurses, physical therapists or social workers who are operating under the orders of your doctor, or home aides or companions who can assist with daily activities.


Not only does home care offer seniors personal care and medical attention within the comfort of their own home, but also recent technological advances have made even more areas of care available. Items such as intravenous infusion technology, radiography, ultrasound, feeding pumps, ventilators, pulse oximeters, hand-held blood analysis devices and other technologically advanced devices, which were once found only in the hospital, are now relatively commonplace in the home. All of these expand the capabilities of home care and the ability of the home health care professional to provide quality care in the home.


If you have questions about whether or not in-home care is right for you or your loved one, visit Interim HealthCare’s Questions About Home Care page for answers. Not sure if you need home care?
