A Baby Nurse (also known as a Newborn Care Specialist) is a newborn care expert who is educated, trained and highly skilled in all areas of infant care and parental education. They extend their service during the post-delivery stage before starting the baby’s regular eat, sleep and wake schedule.
Home care (also referred to as domiciliary care, social care, or in-home care) is supportive care provided in the home. Care may be provided by licensed healthcare professionals who provide medical treatment needs or by professional caregivers who provide daily assistance to ensure the activities of daily living (ADLs) are met. In-home medical care is often and more accurately referred to as “home health care” or formal care.
Most patients need help in the days following surgery, and at least some ongoing assistance until they are fully recovered to resume their normal daily routines. There are many post-surgery details to handle, like making sure that the patient is comfortable, that surgical dressings are fresh and medications taken, and that the patient’s immediate needs are taken care of. Depending on doctor’s orders and the type of surgery, the patient may be encouraged to get up and move around on schedule so the body’s normal functions are maintained.
Hospice care is end-of-life care. A team of health care professionals and volunteers provides it. They give medical, psychological, and spiritual support. The goal of the care is to help people who are dying have peace, comfort, and dignity.
This means a patient living in a nursing facility or long-term care facility can receive specialized visits from hospice nurses, home health aides, chaplains, social workers, and volunteers, in addition to other care and services provided by the nursing facility.

Caring for an aging parent, elderly spouse, domestic partner or close friend presents difficult challenges – especially when a crisis hits and you are suddenly faced with the responsibilities of elder care.

Caregiving can also begin as a result of a series of unsettling mishaps and warning signs that indicate a need for long term senior care. Perhaps your elderly spouse has wandered off and gotten lost several times. Or a long-time friend has lost a lot of weight and rarely leaves home.
You may be the only person to step in and become the caregiver, or you may be the linchpin of a network of family members and friends willing to help care for your elderly senior. Whatever the situation, you are not sure of the next step, or even the first step.
