Are you considering in-home care for your loved one? If so, it's normal to have a long list of questions, especially if you've never been through this before. At Interim HealthCare of East Tennessee, we're here to supply answers to your questions and provide in-home care services. Our senior care in Morristown includes a wide range of services that are provided by fully trained health care professionals.

How Does Senior Care Work?

Our senior care programs provide a variety of services, including both medical and non-medical assistance. Our home health program includes infusion therapy, physical and speech therapy, and wound care. If your loved one is recovering from a recent hospital stay, this service can be beneficial during their transition back into home life.

Our non-medical assistance program is known as personal care and support, which is designed to assist seniors with everyday tasks like bathing, dressing, meal preparation, and walking.

We also offer respite care for family caregivers. We understand that being a caregiver takes time and dedication, so our nurses and caregivers are happy to step in when you need a break.

When you decide to begin in-home care for your loved one, we will begin with a free evaluation to determine how we can provide the best possible care. One of our nurses or caregivers will come to your loved one's home and speak with them about what types of care they need. This gives us a sense of what your loved one likes and dislikes, which helps us select a compatible caregiver and devise a personalized care plan.
