In Home Care Versus Assisted Living?

In home care and assisted living centers are very similar in the services they offer. The main differences are in where your loved one will be cared for, the amount of skilled-care needed, and cost.

Where
In home care is just that, services are done within the comfort and familiarity of the client's home. An assisted living center on the other hand provides the care needed from within the facility usually on a 24/7 basis.

Services
The services offered by Midwest Home Care and an assisted living center are similar. Midwest Home Care has In Home Skilled Nursing Care, Daily Home Aids, In Home Evening Care, In Home Occupational Therapy, In Home Physical Therapy, In Home Speech Therapy, and offer referrals to community programs for exercise, socialization, and transportation.

Cost
Essentially, with Assisted Living, you are paying for room and board on top of the other services you need. Where you live (city and state), how new the assisted living center is, and what services you need, all will determine the cost of care. With Midwest Home Care, we are providing an aide or skilled nurse to assist your loved one from the comfort of their home.
