What is non-medical home care?

You’re the family caregiver—the daughter who makes sure dad gets to the doctors, the son who stops by after work to tuck mom safely in at night, or the person responsible for ensuring Aunt Elsie eats nutritious meals. We know you want to provide the best care for your senior loved one and we know that you have a lot of choices. Sometimes, just getting the answers and information you need can be exhausting.

Allow us to assist you in obtaining accurate information on non-medical home care.

Non-medical home care providers make it logistically possible for elders to stay in familiar surroundings rather than uprooting them from their homes before it’s necessary. It allows your loved ones who require assistance to remain vibrant and engaged in the greater world.

Trusted Hands Senior Care provides non-medical home care, such as personal care, homemaker or companionship services provided by professionally trained and certified caregivers.

We assist with ADL’s (Activities of Daily Living) and IADL’s (Instrumental Activities of Daily Living):

ADLs are basic activities and functions performed on a daily basis that are usually done without assistance. The six ADLs are:

– eating
– dressing
– bathing
– toileting
– transferring
– continence

IADLs, on the other hand, are those activities instrumental to our daily routines such as:

– driving
– preparing meals
– doing housework
– shopping
– managing finances
– managing medication
– using the telephone
