What is the difference between “skilled” and “unskilled” medical care?
“Unskilled” or “Non-medical” care typically refers to personal care and companion activities such as bathing, grooming, dressing, as well as assistance with meal preparation, light housekeeping, and running errands. It could also include medication reminders, assistance with ambulation, and transportation to medical appointments. These types of services are typically provided by Home Health Aides (HHAs) or Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), and can be arranged for anywhere from a few hours to 24-hours a day. “Unskilled” or “Non-medical” care is often sought by the elderly, new and expectant parents, individuals with disabilities and those transitioning from a hospital or medical facility to home.

Skilled Medical Care follows a specific plan of care under the supervision of a Physician, Nurse (RN/LPN/LVN), or Therapist, and involves home healthcare services such as nursing care; physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapies; as well as social services and hospice care. Skilled medical care in the home can help provide a comforting solution to residing in a hospital, nursing home, or assisted living community.
