Top 5 Reasons to Choose Homecare
1. In Home Care Promotes Healing.
"I know that our clients enjoy a much better quality of life which many families have said helped to extend the lives of their loved ones," says Terrie Marr, CEO, RN and founder of Angel Homecare. "We focus on healing the mind, not just the body. In many circumstances, the person rehabilitates better in the home. They are in a familiar environment and are more comfortable. This is particularly true with individuals suffering from dementias."
2. In Home Care Is Safe.
"Many risks such as infection are eliminated or minimized when health care is given at home," says Marr. Quality home care by professional caregivers can help prevent issues that may become very serious within the home. One example includes preventing falls in the home. Seniors may be too weak or dizzy from medication and fall when they're cleaning or bathing.
3. In Home Care Allows The Maximum Amount Of Freedom For The Individual.
Patients at home may be engaged with their typical daily activities as their health permits. Plus it allows patients to receive care in the least restrictive environment. "This is the most conducive to patient-centered care which allows individuals the most control over the care they'll receive and the manner in which they receive it. An important point is that is also allows individuals to remain in the community.
4. Home Care Gives Them Some Control.
As baby boomers age, the in home care option gives them more control over the type of care they'll get to choose. Marr explains, "Baby Boomers want more choices and want to be a more active participant in their own care. Home care allows them the most say in their care as they are in the least passive situation."
5. It Eases Burdens On The Family.
Marr explains, "With the length of stay in the hospital steadily decreasing, patients are going home earlier. And many of them do not choose to go to a rehab center to recover." Rather, they want to go home to their own environment with their loved ones and have someone provide them with the care they'll need in order to reach their maximum level of function. Marr continues, "Families are willing to have their loved ones with them, but may feel inadequate or unable to provide their loved ones with the help that they might need." Private home health care services offer them the assistance these families need.
