If you or a loved one needs assistance with daily tasks, home healthcare is an excellent option. Typically, house call services are provided by nurses or other healthcare professionals. Visiting hours are scheduled for the patient and may include wound care, medication management, and other treatments. Home health care services are also available after hours and on weekends. The services are provided by a nurse, a physical therapist, or a social worker. It may be difficult to find the right home care provider, but it is possible to find a good one.
Allowing a live-in Aid for a senior is both fair housing and a fair HUD requirement. The definition of a live-in aide is someone who lives with one or more senior adults, close-to-elderly adults, or disabled people, and who: A) is physically capable; and B) requires the assistance of another person on a daily basis in the performance of tasks that would normally be performed by an able-bodied person. The requirement does not mean a live-in aid has to be permanently living in the home it just means a senior citizen companions. It could just mean someone needs help occasionally to carry out everyday activities. The aide must not be prohibited from living independently.
