As we age, most of us want to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible. Home care provides numerous benefits for people who wish to age in place. Even when frailty is a factor, in-home care clients tend to feel better and more comfortable when they are allowed to age in their own homes with a feeling of self-reliance and independence.
Other benefits of home care include:
- Family ties. Home care allows families to stay closer and family members tend to be more involved with the care when their loved one is at home.
- Personalization. Home care can offer personalized care tailored to the needs of the family and the individual on any given day.
- One-on-one attention. Because home care services are delivered one-on-one as opposed to the group setting of nursing homes, there is no “waiting for one’s turn” when care is needed.
- Get moving! Staying mobile is extremely important as we age. With a home care program, personalized daily exercise routines can be implemented and maintained with the safety of a qualified professional on hand.
- Healthy meals for a healthy body. Not only can in-home caregivers help clients stay active, they can also prepare healthy meals that appeal to the client and adhere to any dietary restrictions.
When it’s time to make the important decision about extended care, quality of life should be your number one concern.
