When researching and comparing the types of in-home care services available for yourself or your loved ones, it is important to understand the difference between home care and home health care. Home health care is care provided in the home by skilled professionals under a doctor’s order or supervision. It is less expensive but can be as effective as care given in a hospital or a skilled nursing facility. Home health care is intended to treat an illness or injury for someone while staying in the confines and comfort of their own home, while helping them recover and regain independence and self-sufficiency as quickly as possible. Home care on the other hand is non-medical in-home care that could range from companion care (hands-off) to personal care (hands-on) that includes assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) to more complex care. Home care providers, though not considered “skilled professionals”, have the necessary skillsets and certain certifications to provide care, e.g., nursing assistants or home health aides.

Home care is about sustaining and maintaining your loved one’s quality of life in their home by assisting with activities of daily living:
While a skilled home healthcare professional changes your loved one’s prescriptions, an in-home caregiver helps them remember to take medications day in and day out.

At Homewatch CareGivers of Castro Valley, our person-directed approach to home caregiving helps an individual to live life to the best of their current abilities so they feel empowered and fulfilled.
