2016 Clark County In-Home Services Guide

Editor's Note: The Messenger made every effort to list correct information for home care agencies and services in Clark County for this guide.


Home Care

Home care is provided by caregivers, usually called home care aides, who are trained to understand the nuances of senior care. Home care aides can help older adults with activities of daily living, or just offer some friendly companionship. Unlike home health, home care is classified as personal care or companion care and is considered “unskilled” or “non-clinical.”
