1. It Promotes Healing.
Having your loved one in their own surroundings promotes healing not only of the body, but also of the mind. Getting old is no fun. It is a huge transition not to be able to do all the many simple tasks that used to come easily. When you top that with actually moving from your own home with all its memories to a strange place, well it can be extremely overwhelming.
2. It is Is Safe.
Many times when a patient is transported to a hospital, infections can occur. As clean as a hospital can be, it is difficult to keep the place 100% free of bacteria with so many sick people everywhere. When a person resides at their own residence, the chances of attracting infections become smaller.
3. It Allows Freedom For The Individual.
While staying in the privacy of their own residence, patients can enjoy engaging in familiar activities. A Professional, of course, is on hand to assist them. The patient is much more at ease when keeping their independence. Even though he or she is being helped by a Professional, it isn’t quite as devastating as being in a cold hospital room.
4. It Eases the Burden
Having your loved one in their home does ease the burden on family members once they opt for care at home. This rings true especially if the family member is the sole caretaker. When it is their responsibility to care for their loved one, plus work outside the home — it can be a life changing experience. Without professional experience, many times it is almost too much to bare (depending on how sick the patient is).
5. It encourages Family Involvement. Family members usually are free to come and go instead of making a special trip to a hospital or nursing home. Having family members come in and out is a great way to keep up a person’s spirits.
6. It provides Personal Attention – Personal attention ensures that the person you love will get what they want when they need it without going through hospital channels.
7. It Lowers Costs. The cost of in-NDIS Service is usually quite less than a traditional nursing facility or even assisted living centers. You can even hire someone to come at only certain hours of the day which in itself is cost effective.
In home care is becoming more widespread throughout the United States. It frees you from making the decision for your loved one to go to a nursing facility. Life can actually go on pretty much the same as before when you have competent home care..
