In-home care services are a cost-effective alternative to facility-based nursing home care. It is well documented that providing these services reduces the rate at which at-risk older adults utilize nursing homes, enabling them to maintain their independence in their own homes. In- home care services provide consumers on-going assistance with activities of daily living (ADL), which may include services like:
- Meal preparation
- Medication reminders
These supportive services can be arranged for any frequency of time, from one to twenty-four hours of care daily, or on a respite or temporary basis. ACA works with clients, their families and other relevant health care providers to customize care plans, designed to keep individuals safe, healthy and independent at home.
