What is elderly home care?

Similar to independent living, assisted living or supported living, elderly care at home offers support to people who still live at home, but may require general support with everyday tasks. This can include, prompting medications, personal care, meal preparation, light domestic help, companionship and more.

The benefit of this is people, first and foremost, are in a familiar environment – as opposed to a retirement home - which is hugely important for people and their comfort and happiness. It allows them to retain their independent living, whilst also offering a support system around them.
