Although the majority of home care is provided by your friends and family, often referred to as informal caregivers, there is a vast array of professional home and community-based services and supports to help you as well.
Care and assistance in your home may include some combination of informal caregiving, assistive technology, home care (non-medical) and home health care (medical). You may also opt to utilize adult day services where you would go to a center during the day for socialization and care. And if you have a serious or life-limiting illness, then palliative and/or hospice care might be services to consider.
Your home setting may also provide built-in supports. Visit the Housing section to learn more.
