Is Home Care Right for Me?
Home care allows people living with a variety of diagnoses and situations to continue to stay safe and independent at home as they manage their condition. Whether care is needed for just a little while or for the long term, it is often the right choice for people who are:
- Caring for aging family members
As a parent or loved one ages, family members will often step in to help at first. As their loved one’s needs become more significant, it can become very challenging for the family caregiver(s) to meet those needs while keeping up with the rest of life’s responsibilities. Professional home care services can supplement the care being provided by family. Learn more about BAYADA’s personal care and companionship services.
- Living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease
Home care enables a person who has memory loss to remain safely at home, in a comfortable, familiar environment. Some home care providers, like BAYADA, specially train caregivers to be experts in caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

- Living with a spinal cord or traumatic brain injury
Expert nursing care can help individuals rehabilitating from a spinal cord or traumatic brain injury become as independent and self-sufficient as possible. Learn more about BAYADA’s private duty nursing care.
- In need of “high-tech” care
Receiving care at home is possible for many people, even those dealing with complicated respiratory issues that may require a tracheostomy or ventilator. Learn more about BAYADA’s private duty nursing care.
- Managing long-term medical conditions, such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and multiple sclerosis (MS)
Being able to live at home, as opposed to a facility, is often one of the primary objectives of people considering home care. A customized team of home health care professionals can provide high-quality care to meet each person’s unique needs. Learn more about BAYADA’s private duty nursing care.
- Adults with pediatric diagnoses, such as muscular dystrophy (MD), spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), cerebral palsy, and others
Home care offers adults living with a lifelong condition the opportunity to receive expert care at home, provided by nurses and caregivers who specialize in pediatric onset diagnoses. Learn more about BAYADA’s private duty nursing care.
- Recovering after an injury, illness, or hospital stay
Transitioning home after being in a hospital or rehabilitation facility can be tough. In-home nursing care and therapy (such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, or speech language pathology) can give patients and their families peace of mind by helping to make the transition home smoother, safer—and possibly sooner.

- Managing a setback of a chronic medical condition
Nursing and therapy care for recovery at home from a flare-up of a chronic condition addresses the cause of exacerbation and promotes prevention by teaching self-management strategies. The goal of this proactive approach is to reduce the risk of an unnecessary hospitalization. Learn more about BAYADA’s home health care services.
