Why Home Care?
Every day, more and more older adults and their families desire senior care services that are provided in the comfort and safety of home. Below are a few of the reasons why home care is a popular choice for those in need of additional services.
It is delivered at home.
There are such positive feelings that all of us associate with being home. When we are not feeling well, most of us ask to go home. When we are feeling well, we enjoy the sanctity of our residences and the joy of being with our loved ones.
Home care keeps families together.
There is no more important social value. It is particularly important in times of illness.
Home care serves to keep older adults independent.
None of us want to be totally dependent and helpless. With some assistance, older adults can continue to function as viable members of society.
Home care allows a maximum amount of freedom for the individual.
Hospitals and nursing homes offer more regimented, regulated environments. Home care offers a reassuring, individualized setting.
Home care is personalized care.
Home care is tailored to the needs of each individual. It is delivered on a one-to-one basis.
Home care reduces stress.
Unlike most forms of health care which can increase anxiety and stress, home care frequently has the opposite effect.
Home care is one of the most effective forms of health care.
There is very high consumer satisfaction associated with care delivered in the home.
Home care is given by special people.
By and large, employees of home care agencies look at their work, not as a job or profession, but as a calling. Home care workers are highly trained and dedicated to their work.
Home care extends life.
A study by the U.S. General Accounting Office has established that people receiving home care tend to live longer and have a better quality of life.
