Home-Based Personal Care - There is No Place Like Home
According to Forbes magazine "A 2018 AARP survey of adults shows that 3 out of 4 adults age 50+ want to stay in their homes and communities as they age. Baby boomers turn 65 years old every day, and by 2030 18% of the U.S. population will be age 65 or older."
The Covid pandemic, chronic disease and dementia are but a few reasons personal home-based care is increasing. People want to age at home where they feel comfortable and secure around the people and things they love.
Personal care at home offers many benefits:
Greater independence. Older adults may not admit they are struggling because they don't want to lose their independence
Safety, supervision, comfort and convenience
Respite for family caregivers
Personalized one-on-one care
Reduces medical emergencies
