Caring For a Loved One at Home

Safety in the Home

The home is commonplace to provide care for a loved one, family member, or friend. It allows them the time and space to recover from illness in the comfort of home surrounded by those they love. The level of care needed typically depends on a person’s individual needs. But more often than not, it means that there is a caregiver present to help with the activities of daily living, managing medications, and helping them around the home, so they have a successful recovery.
