The Growing Industry of In-Home Care

With more than 40 million Americans over the age of 65 (Institute of Aging, n.d.), the amount of seniors getting help to stay in their homes is rising. Many seniors prefer to age in peace in the comfort of their own homes, but require assistance to do so. As of 2012, the number of disabled seniors with some form of in-home help hit 50% (University of Michigan Health System, 2016). Not only is the amount of seniors requesting to receive care from within their home growing, but the amount of nurses needed to provide the care is growing as well. This new demand is resulting in a booming In-Home Care industry.

What exactly goes into home care nursing? A home care nurse is typically a RN or a LPN who provides medical assistance to someone who isn’t able to leave the home. This medical assistance can include short term care or long term care. For example, home care nurses can help someone while they recover from a surgical procedure or can help an elderly individual remain in their homes. Treatments can include wound care, medication setup and administration, diabetes care, and skilled hospice support.

Home care nursing is a career that is very rewarding not only for the nurse, but also for the patient and the patient’s family.
