There's no place like home.
Recent studies have found that home care is preferred by seniors 9 to 1 over institutionalized care. The comfort and familiarity of their own homes creates a quality of life far better than anywhere else.
Home care helps seniors maintain their independence.
Home care allows seniors, who strive to maintain their remaining independence as long as possible, to continue to live in the place they function best - their home.
Home care helps promote healing and reduces the stress that often accompanies illness.
Medical evidence shows that people recover more quickly at home. Illness increases anxiety and stress, but research shows it's not nearly as great when care is practiced in the home.
Home care is safer and extends life.
Living amid a chronically ill population (such as in a hospital or long-term care facility) increases the risk of infection and other complications over being cared for at home. Studies by nursing schools and government agencies have found that home care actually extends life. Visits by home care professionals provide social, spiritual and non-medical support.
Home care is delivered by a special group of people.
People don't work in the home care industry for the money. They do it for the emotional satisfaction of helping others and for making a difference in the life of another.
Home care is less expensive than other forms of care.
The cost of home care is always less expensive than hospitalization and almost always more affordable than nursing home or assisted living care. With in-home care, you also have the option of hiring someone for only the hours when your loved one needs help the most.
