Within the realm of in home elder care you have options. If you need help with homemaking skills someone can come and help prepare meals and do some cleaning and laundry. Or maybe you want your loved one to have some social interaction for a meal, movie, games or cards, go to church, and so much more. Also, you can hire an over night person to help you have peace of mind knowing someone is there with your loved one.
I am unsure of the costs between in home care and nursing homes or if medicare will cover the services. It is a tough choice for families and many families just need to hear all the options when weighing the options for their loved one.
