Non-Medical In-Home Care for Seniors


Non-Medical In-Home Care for Seniors in Westerville

Non-medical in-home care is improving the lives of seniors and people living with disabilities all over America, including in the North Columbus area of Ohio. Non-medical in-home care can ensure that seniors can live in their homes safely and healthily regardless of whether or not they have mobility issues, a neurodegenerative condition such as Alzheimer’s Disease, or even if they just need a helping hand with the housekeeping.

Non-medical in-home care is performed by caregivers, not doctors or nurses (hence “non-medical”). And it is carried out in the homes of the clients (hence “in-home”). While it’s often a fairly simple service, it has revolutionized senior care. Now, seniors of  North Columbus no longer have to choose between receiving care and living in their beloved homes. They can have both.

Instead of having to leave their homes and move into a special community or facility, seniors and those who live with disabilities in North Columbus area can receive care in their own homes. And not only is it more convenient than moving into a senior care facility, non-medical in-home care is also often the cheaper option. This is because there’s no need to pay rent or other fees to a senior care facility.
