Home Health Care vs. Home Care

In Home Health Care San Francisco Bay Area

Bay Area families looking for support to provide for the needs of their loved ones often look to home health care vs. home care to meet those needs. It’s a common misconception that in-home health care is necessary for seniors who need additional support in order to stay independent, however many families discover that professional home care services like those provided by NuevaCare can meet all their non-medical needs at a more affordable cost.

In-home health care entails the services of a registered nurse to provide care such as wound care, administration of medication, medical tests and health monitoring. Many seniors, even those dealing with chronic conditions or recovering from serious illnesses, may need the services associated with in-home health care but can also benefit from a professional caregiver who can provide medication reminders, hygiene aids, meal preparation and nutrition, and more.

NuevaCare is a non-medical home care agency that provides professional services for seniors suffering from dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, disability and more. Located in San Mateo, we provide services to most San Francisco Bay Area communities from Millbrae to San Carlos, San Mateo to Daly City and most other cities on the Peninsula. Our skilled caregivers can come to you wherever you are seeking professional home care in the Bay Area.

Our team creates a custom care plan for each senior, identifying care options and allowing them to remain independent and at home over time. Every in-home caregiver from our agency is selected specifically for the individual senior’s needs. Prior to the beginning of service, our expert staff based in San Mateo works with each family to ensure that the match is a good one. All across the Bay Area in San Carlos, Palo Alto, Belmont, and Millbrae, families are finding that the in-home care provided by NuevaCare is second to none, across the spectrum of home care and at affordable costs.

The home care specialists from our agency are trained in creating the kind of environment that is most conducive to helping those coping with the trials of aging and to maintain as much functionality as possible.

A powerful tool for families, bringing in a non-medical professional caregiver who is trained in care can be a perfect compliment to in-home health care, and is one of the best ways for families of patients with stroke, dementia, limited mobility, chronic disease, disability or Alzheimer’s to mitigate the deterioration that can eventually debilitate them in their old age. These diseases don’t have to be overwhelming for families of aging loved ones. We’re here to help.
