What is Home Care?
There is no place like home. Most people prefer to live in their own home as long as possible. Studies show that several hours of home care services provided in a person’s home each week cost about 20% of what it costs to move into a retirement or nursing facility. But it is just not about money.
As the population of older adults continues to grow each year, more older adults are finding ways to reside in the comfort of their own homes. They have found that home care services allow them to remain at home and avoid moving into a retirement facility or nursing home. And being at home makes their lives more fulfilling, healthier and happier.
Before making major changes—selling a home, distributing belongings and moving, there are other options to consider.
Home care is a general term that represents a wide range of services that support a person in their home. A person may need services due to an acute situation, such as a hip fracture, or chronic conditions, such as a stroke or multiple sclerosis. Home care services give people that little extra help to manage their everyday lives.
The skills and duties of home care personnel vary, but all have one common goal—to make it possible for people to remain at home in a safe environment and in some cases have more independence than they did before. In the process, home care services also give family caregivers a chance to replenish themselves mentally and physically.
