SUPPORTIVE SERVICES

 

In the words of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice, Home care providers deliver a wide variety of health care and supportive services, ranging from professional nursing and HCA care to physical, occupational, respiratory, and speech therapies. They also may provide social work and nutritional care and laboratory, dental, optical, pharmacy, podiatry, x-ray, and medical equipment and supply services. Services for the treatment of medical conditions usually are prescribed by an individual’s physician.

Supportive services, however, do not require a physician’s orders. An individual may receive a single type of care or a combination of services, depending on the complexity of his or her needs. Home care services can be provided by the following professionals, paraprofessionals, and volunteers.

 

What is considered Supportive Services?

HCAs/home health aides assist patients with Activity of Daily Living (ADLs) such as getting in and out of bed, walking, bathing, toileting, and dressing. Some aides have received special training and are qualified to provide more complex services under the supervision of a nursing professional.

Homemaker and chore workers perform light household duties such as laundry, meal preparation, general housekeeping, and shopping. Their services are directed at maintaining patient households rather than providing hands-on assistance with personal care.

Companions provide companionship and comfort to individuals who, for medical and/or safety reasons, may not be left at home alone. Some companions may assist clients with household tasks, but most are limited to providing sitter services.

Three (3) different Home Care providers that you should be aware of:


Home Care Companies: These companies are licensed and bonded who employs their own personal attendants (PA). Since Home Care is not regulated, most companies will assure their clients security by certifying their company through the National Private Duty Association and/or California Association for Health Services at Home.

Registries: Serve as an employment agency for home care nurses and PAs who matches theses providers with clients. Registries are not regulated by the government, are usually not licensed and are not required to preform background checks on the care providers. All responsibilities fall on the client such as background check on the care provider, directly paying the care provider, submission of pay roll taxes and social security withholding requirements, plus complying with all applicable state and federal labor, health and safety laws and regulations.

Private Care Providers: Finding your own care provider, you as well take on all responsibility such as background check on the care provider, directly paying the care provider, submission of pay roll taxes and social security withholding requirements, plus complying with all applicable state and federal labor, health and safety laws and regulations.
