    What is Short Term Health Care?

    Short-term health care includes any professional support services that allow a loved one to safely live in the comfort of his or her own home. At-home care services can help an aging senior receive independent living assistance. Short-term home care can help older adults manage chronic health issues, recover from medical setbacks, manage a disability and manage special needs that require specific care. Professional caregivers such as nurses, aides, and therapists can provide short-term care in your loved one’s home based on his or her unique needs.

    Short-Term Flexibility

    One of the biggest advantages short-term home care services have over long-term services is  that they can be customized to accommodate a specific medical need that your loved one may have. This care option is typically flexible and can be increased or decreased as your loved one’s condition changes.

    • Therapy and rehabilitation services

    How Long Can Home Care Services Last?

    How Long Can Home Care Services Last

    Short-term care can last for only a few days to a couple of months depending on what your loved one may need in their recovery process. Home care is a temporary service in these instances. For example, home care companies can provide short-term services to help seniors make a smooth transition from the hospital back to their homes. These types of services can be covered through a variety of insurance or other payment options. 

    Day-to-day Tasks

    Depending on the needs of your loved one, one or more professional caregivers may be held with needed care. A caregiver can provide assistive care with daily living activities including bathing, dressing, walking and transportation, laundry, meal preparation, and light housekeeping. Ensuring that your loved one is taking their medications as directed, eating nutritious meals and does not have to handle chores can help them recuperate much faster.

    Skilled vs Unskilled Care

    Skilled short-term home care (also known as home health care) includes services such as wound care, monitoring vitals, physical therapy, administering medications, speech-language therapy, and occupational therapy. Harmony Home Care can provide both unskilled and skilled services simultaneously, depending on the needs of your loved one.

    If your loved one’s needs change and longer term supports are needed, Harmony Home Care is here to help. We provide a full continuum of personal care options for seniors designed to best support your loved one.
