In St. Louis, home care is different than home healthcare in several ways.
Primarily, home care is non-medical and home healthcare is a medical or skilled
service. Home healthcare is usually for

of daily living like cooking, cleaning, bathing and laundry.Often, home healthcare and home care come
together when caring for a client or patient. The caregiver attends the at-home
PT/OT sessions so as to be able to help with exercising after therapy has ended.
Caregivers also remind clients about medications prescribed by physicians.While home

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.
