If your elderly loved one needs assistance recovering or simply living on their own, in-home care can be a great option. It is common to have questions about in-home care, especially if you've never used a service like it before. At Interim HealthCare of Pittsburgh, we welcome your questions and are here to help you in any way we can. Our elder care in the Pittsburgh, PA area can help your loved one receive quality care in the comfort of their own home.

How Does Elder Care in Pittsburgh Work?

Our elder care programs include both medical and non-medical care and assistance for seniors. Our caregivers come to your loved one's home and can help them with a variety of services and tasks. Our elder care programs include:

  • Adult home health
    • Wound care
    • Infusion therapy
    • Physical, occupational, and speech therapy
  • Personal care and support
  • Hospice care

Before you begin any of these programs, we recommend an initial in-home evaluation visit. One of our nurses or caregivers will come to your loved one's home and conduct a preliminary evaluation. They will ask about any medical conditions your loved one has, what medications they take, and what type of assistance they may need. From there, a personalized care plan can be made for your loved one, ensuring they receive the care they need.
