What to expect from Home Nursing
- Who are In-Home Nurses?
- An in-home nurse, home care nurse, medical caregiver, or even home health caregiver is the name given to someone who provides medical assistance to patients in the comfort of their own home, instead of the patient going into nursing home care or long-term care facility.
- What Services does an In-Home Nurse Provide?
- Home care nurses or in-home nurses are qualified to administer medications, injections and care related to health conditions including diabetes, tracheotomy, respiratory, colostomy, dressing injuries and so on. They mostly work in assisting those who are elderly, chronically ill, disabled, or cognitively impaired by performing the necessary medical therapies in the home of their clients.
- Depending on the client and their specific health care needs, the in-home senior care nurse may provide simple medication administration, monitoring, and check-up care or more complicated medical treatments and therapies, over a specific period of time during a recovery or ongoing. Again, depending on the needs of the person and their medical condition, an in-home nurse will come to their client’s home and provide the care they require.
Assisted Daily Living
Basic ADL activities are:
- Functional mobility (moving from one place to another while performing activities such getting in and out of bed, or a chair)
- Toilet hygiene (includes getting to the toilet, self-cleaning, getting up from the toilet)

Home Nursing Functionalities:
In-Home Nurses Provide Health Monitoring and Treatment
Home care nurses regularly assess your health. They will monitor vitals and how you react to your medications. Any changes to your overall health condition—good or bad—are what they watch for. An in-home nurse will regularly report to your physician and family about your health and any significant changes.
In-Home Nurses Provide Companionship
Your in-home nurse will get to know you and will be someone you can talk to regularly about how you feel both physically and emotionally. It is their responsibility to look after your well-being while you maintain the independence of living in your home. The comfort of being in your own familiar surroundings and having at home care by a skilled medical professional is the best of both worlds.
Indeed, it allows a friendly interaction and may feel like a kind caring friendship as opposed to a clinical check-up. This is a truly positive benefit to having an in-home nurse. We can more easily accept the nature of things as they are if we have a secure and homey environment in place to offset the perhaps worrisome and uncomfortable medical procedures that are necessary.
In-Home Nurses Administer Medication
As licensed and registered nurses, home care or in-home nurses can administer prescribed medications to their patients, including intravenously ( sometimes ). They are not able to prescribe medications but they are able to make changes to the patient’s dosage with the approval of a physician. This is an important consideration for those who have specific medications that are difficult to administer independently.
In-Home Nurses Can Provide Basic ADL Assistance
As mentioned earlier, basic ADL tasks such as toilet hygiene (getting to the toilet, self-cleaning, getting up from the toilet), eating, functional mobility (moving from one place to another such getting in and out of bed or a chair), dressing, grooming and bathing are things an in-home nurse can assist with. These are fundamental living activities and in-home nurses are trained to be capable of performing such duties for their patients.
