10 Reasons Why Home Care is Better...

Most people prefer home care - and for good reason.  Who wouldn’t want to stay at home if they could?  Home is a place of emotional and physical associations, memories and comfort.  Here are ten reasons why home care is a popular choice:


1 - FASTER RELEASE FROM THE HOSPITAL

With home care, patients can come home sooner from the hospital. Quality home care can aid the healing process and help avoid hospital readmissions.  

2 - SUBSTITUTE FOR INSTITUTIONAL CARE

In some cases - depending on the severity of an illness or disability - home care can substitute for other forms of institutionalized care, including hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities.  People are clearly happier when they can live in the comfort of home. 

3 - INVOLVEMENT WITH TREATMENT

Both the patient and family members can be more intimately involved with the patient’s treatment at home - helping to administer medications, working with the patient on physical therapy, and coaching them on their recovery. 

4 - INDEPENDENCE

Who doesn’t want independence? This is, perhaps, the greatest plus for receiving care in one’s own home. 

5 - COMFORT

Being at home is simply more comfortable for most people than being in an unfamiliar place. They have their photographs, books, bed, bath, kitchen, telephone, television; everything is in its place, which in studies has proven to be an effective emotional healer. 

6 - FAMILY AND FRIENDS

Unlike the restricted visiting hours at hospitals and nursing homes, home provides a place where family and friends can be close to the person at all hours, whenever needed.

7 - MORALE

Patients tend to have a greater sense of well-being and overall morale when they are in the comfortable surroundings of their own home. 

8 - FASTER RECOVERY

Research has shown that recovery can be faster at home than in the hospital, particularly if there is good quality, skilled home health care available to the patient. 

9 - COST

Depending on the hours needed, home care can be much more affordable than nursing homes or other institutions. Please see Home Care saves you money! under About Us tab?  

10 - PROMOTES HEALING

Patients enjoy a much better quality of life which many families have said helped to extend the lives, health & happiness of their loved ones. They are in a familiar environment around their family in both their home and community in which they've lived for many years. This is particularly true with individuals suffering from dementia.
