There has never been a higher demand for in-home care services. As the aging population and caregivers navigate the unprecedented challenges presented by Covid-19, it has become clear that the need for professional, compassionate care is only going to increase with time. More individuals than ever before required in-home care during 2020 and that trend shows no sign of stopping as we enter the new year.

The dedicated team at iCare Home Health Care Services understands the motivation for families to keep their aging loved ones out of hospice, assisted living facilities, and hospitals for as long as possible to avoid them possibly being exposed to coronavirus. The exceptional caregivers on their team serve clients within the Springfield, Virginia, area and surrounding counties, including Stafford, Prince William, Fairfax, Arlington, and Loudoun.

Caregivers across the country are rising to the challenge, and they are providing the support needed to help their clients transition to new realities of home care. Below is a list of a few changes that are here to stay.

  • Telehealth
  • More people being sent home for outpatient treatments
  • Changes to insurance coverage and policies
  • An increase in social isolation

These are some of the obstacles that have become a part of daily life for the elderly generation, and there is still plenty we can do to make them easier for our senior loved ones to effectively overcome.

The caregivers at iCare Home Health Care Services are already working hard to bridge the gaps and provide resources for clients and their families by making it easier to accommodate telehealth options, giving respite from loneliness and isolation, and being available to turn home-based care into an affordable and safe alternative to in-patient treatments. If you or a loved one lives in the local Springfield, Virginia, area and requires some extra assistance, the men and women at iCare Home Health Care Services are available to ease the transition to professional home care.
