In-home care is a less expensive alternative to hospitals and assisted-living facilities because clients receive help with a variety of activities while staying in their own home. If seniors need medical attention, home health agencies provide part-time care through therapy, and health aides can assist in daily procedures such as injections. For those who are still able to live independently but need non-medical help, home-care assistants can help them with grocery shopping, meal preparation and bathing. Sometimes home remodeling is necessary to make conditions safer and more comfortable for seniors.
