Choosing the Right Senior Care Option

Why Turn to New Generations

senior care options

At New Generations, our Home Care and Adult Day Care programs are created to help those in need continue fulfilling their life. Our Home Care program gives elderly and disabled individuals the option to be assisted in the comfort of their own home, while our Adult Day Care program allows them to interact and socialize with others at our facility.

Home Care vs. Adult Day Care

If you’re in the market for a Home Care company, you probably have a lot of questions, and we’re here to tell you that while both of our senior care programs are a wonderful option for your loved one, they have their differences.

Home Care is a good option for those who have come to enjoy the comfort of their home and would like to stay there. We can arrange for our friendly aides or homemakers to arrive at their home and help them with things like bathing, dressing, laundry, vacuuming, ironing, meal preparation, bedding preparation, and more. Our staff members can also assist with transportation needs, whether it be a trip to the doctor or shopping.

Adult Day Care is a good option for those who still want to make new friends and participate in activities. At our facility, we promote independence by stimulating our Day Care members mentally and physically. We offer social interactions with other members, crafts, meals, activities, and medical assistance.

Which option you choose may be based on your loved one’s personality, level of care, or your own desires.

Things to Know About Home Care

If you choose our Home Care option for your loved one, you should know that there are many variations of senior care and support services:

Home- and community-based services: These are services available to seniors and disabled adults and are meant to assist them with physical or mental limitations in their own home. While some services are free, others can be paid for by the government, non-profits, or other businesses depending on qualification.

Home care registry: Also known as the Consumer Directed Model or a Registry, this type of home care puts families in control of their loved ones’ care. Home care services will be given by self-employed professional caregivers (often Home Health Aides, HHAs, or Certified Nursing Assistants, CNAs). This type of home care is usually paid for privately, with long-term care insurance.

Home health agency: A home health agency is often a type of home care that provides medical needs like skilled care, physical therapy, and occupational therapy.. This type of home care is usually funded by Medicaid, which means the program will only be available for a limited time and the Home Health Aides (HHAs) must follow a treatment plan prescribed by a physician.
