Home Care

Home CareToday, there are a wide range of health care services that can be provided in the home. This means that more people can remain in the comfort of their home while they are recovering from a hospital stay or if they just need some additional assistance and support to continue to live independently.

Home care is typically less expensive and more convenient. According to national surveys, it’s what most people say they would choose if they needed additional help.

Through our trained health care professionals, Interim provides a variety of home care services. We work directly with you, your family and often a team of other health care professionals to make sure your needs are met.

Trusted by physicians across the country as a highly respected leader of home care services, we bring peace of mind to family members who don’t always live in the community. They know their loved one is being taken care of and looked after by our competent, caring staff.

If you or your loved one needs home care assistance, please contact us for more information.

Getting confused about what kind of professional caregivers are available to you? There are two basic types of care in the home -- one is home healthcare and the other is in-home care. The biggest difference between home healthcare and in-home care is that home healthcare is a higher level of care that is deemed medically necessary by a physician.

What is home healthcare?

  • Doctor prescribed (a physician has deemed it medically necessary for you or your loved one to receive care in the home)
  • Skilled care (care is provided by nurses or health aides who've had special training)
  • Home health care nurses can administer medication
  • Aid with activities of daily living (ADL)
  • Specialized caregiving in such areas as rehabilitation
  • Search for home healthcare in our Home Healthcare Directory
