Finding yourself or a loved one in a position where support from a nurse or caregiver becomes necessary to remain at home can be an overwhelming feeling. Retaining independence by living in their own homes is integral to most adults' sense of well-being yet frailty, illness and forgetfulness can make living at home difficult. A common approach for individuals who do need some medical services is to assemble a team consisting of a licensed professional to assist one more hours a week with medical needs and a non-medical caregiver to assist throughout the week with basic activities and to provide companionship. With the appropriate support network in place, your or your loved can retain independence and stay in the comfort and familiarity of home.
