To start your search, you can choose from a variety of different care options.
Private In-Home Caregivers:
Individual, self-employed caregivers who provide care services in your home. Some may offer live-in services as well.
Home Care Agencies:
Businesses that offer a network of professional care providers trained to assist with activities of daily living (ADLs) in your home. Home care agencies also manage payroll, taxes, insurance and other administrative responsibilities for their care providers.
Assisted Living Communities:
Residential living environments ranging from smaller, six-bed board and care homes to larger residential care facilities offering a team of care providers dedicated to helping clients with all activities of daily living while eliminating household maintenance responsibilities and also increasing opportunities for social interactions with peers.
Typically operating during standard business hours from Monday through Friday, these community-based programs offer a team of caregivers to assist with activities of daily living (ADLSs) in order to provide day care for clients with medical or mental health conditions. These communities offer educational classes, entertainment, and opportunities for social interactions with peers.
