Home Care vs Home Health Aide
Understanding the difference between non-medical home care and medical home health is important for determining the right care plan for your loved one. Both can be critical to recovery and ongoing quality of life.
Non-medical home health aide goes by a couple of different terms. Home care may also be called personal care or private duty care. Medical home health care or in-home nursing care, on the other hand, is usually referred to as home health. Home health care is medical and prescribed by a doctor, while home care is non-medical and does not require a doctor’s prescription.
