Benefits of In-Home Care
Things you can expect from an in-home care provider include but are not limited to:
- Check-in and supervision
One of the greatest benefits of in-home care is that it takes the burden off of family members. Family members may want to help, but have to go to work or are not able or qualified to assist their loved one in the way that is needed. Having a designated caregiver that is not family also allows family members the privilege of keeping their relationship roles the same.
Difference Between In-Home Care and Assisted Living
In-home care is more of an option for those who need less assistance and do not require advanced, constant supervision and care. For those who need this type of constant help, assisted living may be the better or only option.
In-home care is just a boost or a supplement to living independently. It also is a social stimulant for seniors who may otherwise live or spend a lot of time alone.
There is research showing that mortality rates are much higher in elderly adults who are isolated. The companionship of in-home care is one of the greatest aspects of in-home care. Someone may need assistance with day-to-day errands, but will soon discover that the bond they form with their caregiver is the most valuable investment for their health and wellbeing.
Making the Right Choice
Using resources wisely is not only cost-effective but is appreciated to reduce caregiver burnout. Those who move into a facility prematurely may decline more rapidly. This is because it is easy to let the staff take over daily tasks that you or a loved one could still do themselves. The more sedentary you become and the less frequently you perform these tasks, the more likely you are to decline mentally and physically.
Budget and Family
As far as budget, it makes sense to only pay for the services that you need. If you do not need 24-hour nurse supervision, then there are other options that would better suit your needs such as in-home care. While it may seem most natural and cost-effective to stay with family, this is not always the best option. The financial, physical, and time restraints on loved ones can strain precious relationships unnecessarily.
Even if you feel you can still live independently at home without assistance, it is a matter of prevention, safety, and quality of life. If you already maintain an active lifestyle, there is no harm in letting someone else do some of the grunt work. If you hate mowing the lawn or vacuuming the floor, why not let someone else do that for you? The safety factor is important so that if something were to happen, there is someone accountable for checking on you regularly. Having someone to help with more high-risk chores such as cooking, cleaning, and yard work could also prevent falls or other injuries.
