We’re here to help you find the right home care solution for your loved one.
Q: Are senior companion care and personal care services the same?
A: Not quite. Senior companion care focuses on providing the support aging adults need to accomplish activities of daily living that don’t require direct physical contact with the client, such as grocery shopping, light housekeeping, and attending doctor visits. Personal care aides help older adults and those living with a health condition perform tasks that require direct physical assistance, like toileting, grooming, and bathing.
Q: How do I pay for home health services?
A: There are many ways to pay for MDC Healthcare’s home care services, like private pay, Medicaid, or Medicare. When you meet with a care coordinator, we get to know your family member’s care requirements and help you assess the cost of in-home care. No matter your situation, we strive to find an affordable way for you to get the health services your loved one needs.
Q: I only need short-term care for my loved one. What are my options?
A: We designed our respite care and social adult day care services to provide short-term relief to family caregivers. Respite care aides step in to provide home health support to your loved one while you handle personal matters. This service can last anywhere from an afternoon to several weeks.
Social adult day care facilities provide an opportunity for older adults and others to engage in socially and intellectually stimulating activities in a safe environment. When you need to run errands or go to work, our caregivers look after your loved one and ensure they remain comfortable.
Q: How can I become a trained caregiver?
A: If you’re passionate and empathetic, you could have what it takes to become a caregiver. MDC Healthcare helps those who want a career in caregiving receive all the education, certification, and hands-on experience they need to be effective aides. We’d be happy to have you.
