How are In-Home Care Giving Services Better Than Assisted Living Facilities?
The way most elder care is set up in nursing care homes and assisted living facilities has as much to do with safety as continuous medical treatment and supervision. In fact, because 75 percent of accidental deaths in seniors over 65 years old, nursing homes and other elder care giving services will often restrict free movement in mobility challenged seniors to prevent accidental falls.
Seniors well enough and functional enough to qualify for in-home professional care services have an advantage of staying more active with a senior health professional accompanying them where ever they need to go as well as providing services like taking care of tasks our elders are no longer physically able to handle safely.
Staying in the Neighborhood with In Home Elder Care
Seniors who want to stay in their own homes for as long as they are able to live independently often have friendships, neighbors, and activities they have been involved with for many more years. If a bit of safety remodeling in a senior’s home, widening access for wheelchair use around the whole house, support bars in the bathroom, as well as a walk-in tub, emergency alert system accessible in all rooms, and safety appliances all give seniors an advantage in their daily lives.
Saving Money During Retirement with Elder Care
Care Giving Services in the home cost less than the monthly fees of a nursing home or assisted living facility. Even saving just a few dollars by retrofitting a seniors’ personal home to keep them safe and reduce the chance of a fall is an advantage. Seniors able to save money have lower expenses, so they can afford to spend their money on special events and more personalized outings. Professional elder care companions will help seniors stay socially connected, helping send letters to friends and family, assisting with purchasing and planning snacks for visitors, as well as transporting them to where they need to go.
Benefits of Senior Care in the Home
As this generation of retired seniors look for solutions for their in-home living needs, there are many benefits to staying in the place they have lived for a long time. Seniors are less likely to become confused or disoriented in their familiar surroundings than if they are moved into a strange environment.
