Who Needs In-Home Care?
Individuals who are incapable of accomplishing an Activity of Daily Living by themselves are able to utilize in-home care for the help they need to effectively complete an activity.
Each individual will need varying degrees of care support based on their physical or cognitive limitations. One person could require minimal assistance throughout the week, while someone else may require 24/7 comprehensive care assistance with each ADLs for a period of time.

Some common situations where a caregiver may need extra assistance could include:
- A caregiver needs a temporary break from an essential care responsibility such as when going to work
- A caregiver is overloaded with outside responsibilities and needs extra support to fulfill certain caregiving duties throughout the day
- A primary caregiver such as an elderly spouse is unable to assist with more difficult activities such as getting out of bed and into a wheelchair
