What Services a Supportive In-Home Caregiver Provides
As your loved one is being prepared to be discharged from a hospital or rehabilitation center, the doctor may explain to you that your loved one needs at-home healthcare. Typically a nurse will stop by your loved one's home and give him the care he needs, including medications, checking his wounds, and providing physical therapy. However, in addition to this, the doctor may recommend a supportive in-home caregiver. When this occurs, you may wonder how an in-home caregiver differs from at-home healthcare.
