Types of Services Home Care Providers Deliver:

Registered Nurses (RNs) and licensed practiced nurses (LPNs): Provide skilled services that cannot be performed safely and effectively by non-professional personnel. Some of these services include injections and intravenous therapy, wound care, education on disease treatment and prevention, and patient assessments. RNs may also provide case management services. RNs have received 2-4 years (sometimes more) of specialized education and are licensed to practice by the state. LPNs have 1-2 years of specialized training and are licensed to work under the supervision of registered nurses. The intricacy of a patient's medical condition and required course of treatment determine whether care should be provided by an RN or can provide by an LPN.

Physical Therapists (PTs): Work to restore the mobility and strength of patients who are limited or disabled by physical injuries or illness through the used of exercise, massage, and other methods. Physical Therapists often alleviate pain and restore injured muscles with specialized equipment. They also teach patients and caregivers special techniques for walking and transfer.

Social Workers: Evaluate the social and emotional factors affecting ill and disabled individuals and provide counseling. They also help patients and their family members identify available community resources.

Speech Language Pathologists: Work to develop and restore the speech of individuals with communication disorders; usually these disorders are the result of trauma, surgery, or stroke. Speech therapists also help retrain patients in breathing, swallowing, and muscle control.

Occupational Therapists (OTs): Help individuals who have physical, developmental, social, or emotional problems that prevent them from performing the general activities of daily living (ADLs). Occupational Therapists instruct patients on using specialized rehabilitation techniques and equipment to improve their function in tasks such as eating, bathing, dressing, and basic household routines.

Certified Nursing Assistants/Home Health Aides: Assist patients with 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.

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