8 Different Business Models

The Business Models offered by Home Care for the 21st Century

Companion Care

Companion care is primarily emotional support and companionship for seniors who are generally healthy and who want to remain independent at home. However, it can also include a range of non-medical services that help make a senior’s life more manageable. These services can include light housekeeping, assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), medication reminders and more. Though companion care focuses on those seniors in their homes, it can be provided to those in nursing homes and assisted senior living facilities. Companion care also falls under the titles personal care assistants and homemaker services.

Personal Care

Typically provided by a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) or Personal Care Assistant (PCA), this type of care includes help with everyday basic tasks such as mobility, bathing, feeding, grooming and toileting. Personal Care Assistants can remind elderly clients to take their medication, but they cannot provide medical care.

Skilled Care Medicare or Private Duty

Home health care includes a wide range of health and social services delivered in your home to treat illness or injury. Home health services include intermittent skilled nursing care, therapy, and care provided by a home health aide. Depending on the circumstances, home health care will be covered by Medicare, private insurance or private pay.

Hospice Care

Hospice is a program of end-of-life pain management and comfort care for those with a terminal illness. Most hospice benefits offer end-of-life palliative treatment, including support for your physical, emotional, and other needs. It is important to remember that the goal of hospice is to help you live comfortably, not to cure an illness.

Non Emergency Medical Transportation

This side of the business concentrates on those unable or uncomfortable driving themselves. This includes doctor and hospital appointments and also could be pharmacy, dentist, groceries or just getting them to a meeting, club or event.

DME

Durable medical equipment (DME) is equipment that helps you complete your daily activities. It includes a variety of items, such as walkers, wheelchairs, and oxygen tanks.

Medical Staffing

In this model your office will assist a wide range of healthcare professionals with a wide range of positions in hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living facilities. This might be for a short-term solution or available full-time positions.
