Why Is In-Home Care a Good Choice for You and Your Family?

Most people prefer home care — and with good reason. Home is a place of emotional and physical associations, memories and comfort.

Here are 5 reasons in-home care is a good choice for you and your family:

  1. INVOLVEMENT WITH TREATMENT

    Both the client and family members can be more intimately involved with the care plan at home. Our certified RN’s will work with your family to develop a personalize care plan and have experience with patients who are dealing with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, heart disease, ALS, and multiple sclerosis.

  1. IMMEDIATE ATTENTION & RESPONSIVENESS

    In-home care features 1:1 personal care, whereas facility-based care can potentially ask a single person to cover 12 to 15 patients.

  1. LOWER COST

    Home care can be significantly more affordable than assisted living, nursing homes or other institutional forms of care. Click here to view and/or download a cost comparison of the cost of home care versus the cost of assisted living.

  2. MORE ACCESS TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS

    Your family and friends have the ability to visit anytime you, and they, want to in your home. You aren’t limited to visiting hours or the schedules of others.

  1. 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 in its place, which studies have proved to be an effective emotional healer.

We believe that home promotes happy

Patients enjoy a better quality of life, which many families have said helped extend the life, health, and happiness of their loved ones. They are in a familiar environment around their family in both their home and community where they’ve lived for many years.
