Definition: Home care, (also referred to as domiciliary care, social care, or in-home care), is supportive care provided in the home.
The largest segment of Home Care consists of licensed and unlicensed non-medical personnel, including caregivers who assist the individual. Care assistants may help the individual with daily tasks such as bathing, remembering medications, toilet assistance, cleaning the home, eating and preparing meals. Caregivers work to support the needs of individuals who require such assistance. These services help the client to stay at home versus living in a facility. For terminally ill patients, home care may include hospice.
