Types of In Home Care Services – Skilled Care vs. Custodial Care

Skilled Care generally provides for specific medical needs while Custodial Care may include Occupational or Environmental assistance, also known as Companion Care which includes help with housekeeping, shopping, meal preparation or Personal Care, such as bathing, dressing and feeding.
