In-Home Care

This is often done by family members who become caregivers. Agencies also provide in-home care that is not medical in nature, including help with activities of daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) or older adults or their families may hire in-home caregivers on their own. (See Definitions). Unlike home health care provided on a short-term basis, these services are not covered by Medicare but may be covered by Medicaid in your state.
