It is difficult to admit that you need help at the best of times, but when it comes to making decisions about caring for yourself or a family member, handing over responsibility to an in-home care services
agency can be an extremely difficult decision to make.
Here are some of the benefits of in-home care services to assist your decision-making process:Customized Care
As every person is different and has different needs, having in-home care means that schedules and routines can be maintained from the convenience and familiarity of home. No need to adjust to new routines, environments and meals in a residential care facility. There’s a lot to be said about the comfort of sleeping in your own bed.Cost-Effectiveness
The cost of residential care facilities can be very high. Home care offers the flexibility to select the extent of care required and make adjustments based on individual needs, from a few hours a day to 24-hour, live-in care.Independence And Dignity
We all fear a time when we may lose the ability to make independent decisions around how we spend our time, when we eat, sleep or socialize, for example. In-home care provides the option of maintaining independence around all day-to-day decisions.
In addition, the care is being provided by an empathetic, professional person who is trained to deliver this service. All aspects of the care service are done in a respectful manner, ensuring that dignity can be maintained.Companionship
It has been proven that social detachment and loneliness are contributing factors to health decline. When isolation replaces an environment that was previously bustling with people, pets and other noise, a marked decrease in physical and mental health can follow.
Home care provides daily human contact with a kind, compassionate person that has your best interests in mind.Health And Safety
It has been proven that remaining in a familiar environment is more conducive to maintaining the health and welfare of an individual. Having a caring professional on hand also means that there is less chance of falls, accidents and other mishaps. Overall, people with in-home care are less likely to need medical attention or to be admitted to the hospital.
