When it comes to senior care, in home care isn’t always the first option for most families. Many are led to believe that nursing homes or private care facilities are the best, if not the only means of making sure that their elderly loved ones are given the proper care and attention they need.
But the truth is that most of those who belong to our elderly population don’t even need to be admitted to nursing homes and similar facilities just so that their needs are attended to. Despite their age, many of them are still able to live comfortably in their own homes. Unfortunately, many of them still needlessly end up in these unfamiliar nursing homes, taking up space that should have been given to those who need them more.
The truth is that nursing homes are usually just intended for people who need special medical care. They were created to help the average family with no background or equipment to care for those who need constant medical care. Usually, the elderly who are admitted to nursing homes don’t even have to stay there for long – only until they get better and can be allowed to go home.
You’d be surprised, however, at how well the elderly can fend for themselves – with a little help from you, of course. We at Comfort Keepers will help your senior loved one live each day happily and comfortably right within the comforts of his or her home. Our well-trained caregivers will promptly attend to your mom or dad’s needs when needed. And since we’ve got part-time, full-time, and even 24 hours in come caregivers, we’ll be there for them at any time.
Studies have shown that those elderly who live in their own homes tend to live healthier and happier lives. This isn’t just because they’re more comfortable, but they get to feel safe within a familiar environment and loved because of the familiar faces. So, unless your loved one is in serious need of constant medical attention, he or she is quite better off with in home care.
