Approximately 12 million individuals currently receive in-home care, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The actual number is much greater when you consider that it does not include informal care which is care given by a friend or family member. While families of seniors with a care-dependent ailment such as a long-term condition or a terminal illness may want to do everything in their power to care for their loved one on their own, a service such as home care can provide not only a dignified level of care to the individual in question, but also a sense of relief to the senior's family. This is why the home care service that is offered by Apex Home Health Services in Albuquerque, New Mexico is so vitally important.
Home care is generally defined as non-medical support services delivered at the home of the senior. The aim of home care is to allow seniors to remain at home longer rather than enter an assisted living community, nursing home or other type of senior care. Home care may be appropriate if a senior prefers to stay at home but needs assistance with activities of daily living.
Activities of daily living include bathing, dressing, and meal preparation but may also extend to assistance with transportation, paying bills, making appointments, and simply being there to provide companionship and emotional support. Home care services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can be paid for directly by the client or through a variety of public and private funding sources such as Long Term Care Insurance, Workers Compensation, Veterans Aid & Assistance Benefit and Medicaid.

To view the differences between using a Home Care Agency vs. hiring an independent personal attendant:
There are three essential questions to ask – to ensure any company chosen has a strong set of core values:
1) Communication – Will I be able to easily communicate with the personal attendant and have continued access to my case manager? This is the core of our approach. We believe that you should never feel there is a lack of control or communication with your personal attendant. For this reason, you are assigned a case manager who is always available.
2) Integrity – Has a sense of trust been established? We believe this is the key to a comfortable relationship and the well-being of the client. That’s why we carefully screen all our personal attendants, are a member of professional home care organizations, and provide a written contract.
3) Performance – Am I confident I will get the professional care promised and that there will be accountability and follow up? Home care is dynamic; a family’s needs can change daily. You choose home care to allow your loved one to remain independent and retain their quality of life, not to endure more paperwork and problem solving.
