Elder care, (also referred to as domiciliary care, senior care, or social care), is health care or supportive care provided in the patient’s home by healthcare professionals (senior often referred to as formal care; in the United States, it is also known as skilled care) or by family and friends (also known as caregivers, primary caregiver, or voluntary caregivers who give informal care).
Often, the term home care is used differently than elder care to distinguish non-medical care or custodial care, which is care that is provided by persons who are not nurses, doctors, or other licensed medical personnel, whereas the term elder care refers to care that is provided by licensed personnel.
