When you or a loved one start to need some extra help around the house or in daily life, there are two main solutions – moving into a CCRC or assisted living community, or hiring in home senior care. Here we take a look at how seniors benefit from home care services.
- The comfort of home: For many people who use these services, this is by far the most important benefit. Moving can be a big disruption in life, removing you from familiar surroundings, your community and your social circle. By staying at home, a good level of independence and routine is maintained, which is something most people love – and is especially beneficial to seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
- Control over your care: When you choose senior home care, you get to control what services are provided, when they are provided and who provides them. This means customized care that fits the patient’s needs as well as personal preferences. You can choose from live-in care to part-time or respite care as the costs are usually determined on an hourly basis, and services can include anything from light housework, transport and companionship to assistance with bathing and grooming.
- Affordability: By being able to customize care services and work within hourly rates, assistance for seniors is often more affordable than making the move into an assisted living facility. You can choose whatever care option best suits your budget rather than having to pay monthly fees.
- Greater flexibility: By choosing in home care, you get greater flexibility in your services because they’re provided for just one person rather than a whole community. This means that if you want to go grocery shopping, your home health aide can take you. If you want meals at a certain time, that can be arranged. It’s all about working within your requirements.
