What is Home Care?

Non-medical care is often referred to as “home care” or “personal care.” You may also hear the term ADL, or activities of daily living used in conjunction with these services.

 

Favor Home Care's non-medical assistance may include help with many of the following home care tasks:

  • Bathing, grooming and dressing

  • Transferring to and from the bed, wheelchair, walker or toilet

  • Medication reminders

  • Transportation and errands

  • Meal preparation and eating

  • Laundry and other light housekeeping

KEEPING UP WITH HYGIENE 

Our caregivers will make sure personal hygiene needs are taken care of with compassion and professionalism. Having assistance with hygiene needs can help your loved one stay clean, comfortable and healthy. This can help avoid hospital admittance while also encouraging your loved one stay more active and outgoing.

 

OFFERING SUPPORT AND COMPANIONSHIP 

Our caregivers provide companionship and support for your loved one, which can help them keep a positive mindset. Playing games, watching movies or just having someone to talk to can make all the difference in the world for older adults who may feel bored and lonely. 

FAMILY RESPITE

In many cases, family members seek non-medical home care services after trying to do everything on their own for too long. Juggling career responsibilities, relationships, and the needs of an aging loved one is no easy task. Our caregivers can help take care of the needs of your loved one so family members are free to take some respite and find a comfortable balance. Favor Home Care can help family members restore relationships with their loved one, allowing you to be a son, daughter, spouse or friend again.

CARE IN A FAMILIAR SETTING

Home care allows seniors to relax and enjoy their homes. Aging in place lets your loved one continue to work on their favorite hobbies, delight in the company of their spouses and pets, while remaining surrounded by their treasured belongings. It is no surprise many older adults prefer in-home care to other types of senior care.
