Home and Community Based Services are personal care and other services provided by our paraprofessional staff, allowing our consumers to live safely and independently in the comfort of their own homes. These services, funded through government and other sources, provide consumers on-going assistance with activities of daily living, which may include bathing, dressing, grooming, meal preparation, housekeeping, and errands .These supportive services can be arranged for any frequency of time, from one to twenty-four hours of care daily, or on a respite or temporary basis.
Addus Evergreen Clubs are adult day centers that provide a variety of planned social, health, and supportive services in a community-based setting. The programs are utilized by seniors and younger adults who have physical, cognitive or functional impairments, or may simply need companionship and can benefit from supervised care in a safe place outside the home during the day. The programs also afford family caregivers respite from the demanding day-to-day responsibilities of care giving.
Home health services are provided by Nurses, Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapists, as well as Dietitians, Medical Social Workers, and Home Health Aides, and can help avoid unnecessary hospitalizations, hasten hospital discharges, and enable an individual to remain at home during acute illnesses. Addus HealthCare provides these services directly in the states of Indiana and Delaware. In other states, Addus can assist consumers in selecting a Home Health Agency and coordinate these services with the Home and Community Based Services provided directly by Addus HealthCare, Inc.
Private duty home care services are the same as those provided under the Home and Community Based program, but are privately arranged and funded by the consumer and/or long term care insurance. These services may be provided to persons recovering from illness or injury, and/or as on-going assistance with activities of daily living, and may include bathing, dressing, grooming, meal preparation, housekeeping, and shopping. The goal of these services is to help consumers recover and live safely and independently in the comfort of their own homes.
Veterans and their family members may be eligible for in-home care services, in whole or in part, through programs and other benefits available through the Veterans Administration.
