In-Home Care is the Best Choice for Aging Seniors
Let's Stay Home! More and more people recognize, especially now during Covid, that there are more benefits caring for a loved one in the comfort of their own home, surrounded by the things they love and that feel familiar.
Here are some reasons why:
Caregiver one-on-one attention - You can always be sure your loved one is never alone. A caregiver will always focus on your loved one's need immediately.
Living at home - People feel safe, secure and comfortable in their own home surrounded by familiar things and pets. Leaving home and moving can be very stressful initiating a long grieving process.
Customized care plans - Caregivers and in-home care customize care plans according to the changing needs of a loved one. There is no "one size fits all approach to care."
Independence - In-home care offers loved one's freedom and independence. They can set the rules with the caregiver. They can eat, bathe, go out, shop and have visitors on their time.
Fall prevention - Caregivers can prevent falls by supervising all activities of daily living and maintaining a safe home.
Meals - Caregivers will always make sure loved one's are eating and staying hydrated. Often preparing favorite foods or drinks to maintain health.
Medication management - Caregivers in the home will make sure all necessary medication is safe and taken on schedule.
No restrictive rules - There are no restrictive rules in a private home giving loved one's a sense of control.
Hygiene - In-home care aides will bathe, shower and dress loved one's so they feel good and look good.
Cost - It may turn out that nursing homes are more expensive and restrictive than in-home care.
So let's stay home! Give us a call to see if private duty care is the best option for your loved one.
