Overall satisfaction.

Generally, in-home care leads to a higher satisfaction with life, even when frailty is a factor.

Respect for loved ones.

Home care, done correctly, allows dignity, independence and maximum comfort for the care recipient.

Health and wellness.

Home care promotes healing. Research demonstrates that patients heal more quickly and comfortably at home versus in a hospital or nursing home setting and there is significantly less chance of rehospitalization when recuperation is at home. (Avalere Study 2008)

Family centered care.

Home care supports and keeps families together. Families tend to stay more involved with the care and maintain closeness with their loved one.

Personalized care.

Home care (mainly paid for by private and not government funds) can offer personalized care tailored to the needs of the family and the individual on any given day, whether that need is as simple as company and conversation or more complex, as in needs with personal care.

Individual attention.

Home care services are delivered one-on-one, assuring more private attention than a nursing home or a facility. There is no “waiting for one’s turn” when care is needed.

Cost-effective care.

Home care is usually cheaper than costs for a nursing home or even assisted living. A good rule is that 8 hours a day or less of home care will be less expensive than moving elsewhere.

Home cooked meals.

A home caregiver produces healthy and nutritional meals that appeal to the individual and can also keep a close eye on the amount of food eaten.

Safe exercise routines.

personalized daily exercise program can be implemented and followed through, with the added safety of a qualified professional being present.

A comfortable setting.

One can never underestimate the benefit of the familiarity of home, whether that be just enjoying a favorite chair or enjoying the daily cup of tea in a familiar corner.
