Home care is a place in which special care is given to a person who has some unusual needs and wants to stay in this home. It can be for those people, who are getting older, or are chronically ill, or may be recovering from surgery or are disabled. These kinds of care services include the following:
1) Personal care, such as help with brushing, bathing, washing hair or in fact getting dressed up also
2) Homemaking that can vary from cleaning the house, yard work, utensil cleaning and laundry
3) Chopping and cooking meals to delivering of meals
4) Health care services, such as having a residence health assistant come to your home in the hour of need
5) For those patients who are terminally ill, these care services may include sanatorium care
6) And for those patients who are recovering from surgery or illness, this care may include rehabilitative assistance
These services can get almost any type of help or assistance you want in your home at any point of time. Some of these services which come under care(privat omsorg) and community services can free or donated ones. But for the rest of many other types of services, the person has to pay in order to avail these services. In very rare of cases, sometimes government plans or the health insurance of a person can help to recover the cost of certain home care services.
In most of the cases, home care(omsorg hjemme) services cover most of the health care to the patient and their home by any of the healthcare professionals. That is why it is often termed as home health care or official care(profesjonell omsorg). But most of the time, home care refers to the services that are provided to a person, but are non-medical care or custodial care. That is why this kind of care is provided by people who are not professionally skilled like nurses, doctors, or some other licensed medical personnel. But in case of home health care, it is a rule that the services must be provided by any of the licensed medical personnel.
This trend of care has been growing very fast for some time now. This is because of the lack of time in every person’s life to give complete care to the needy person. So in order to stay away from the guilt of helplessness, families have now started preferring the advantages of hiring experienced and well-trained caretakers(praktisk bistand). This will not only give complete care to the person, but will also take the burdens and stress away from other members of the family.
So before deciding on to engage the services of any of the care giver, it is very significant to seek help from the person in need. It should definitely be in harmony with the necessities of the person so as to get full value for the wealth spent. Moreover, it will also give you a tension free living.
