The Benefits and Comfort of Age in Place Home Care Versus Assisted Living

When loved ones begin to require assistance to complete their daily tasks, whether as a result of the natural aging process or from an unforeseen, unfortunate event, you may find yourself questioning how best to support them. Depending on their everyday needs, the comfort of age in place home care may best suit your loved one rather than an assisted living facility. While either option can feel like a challenging decision to make, the move towards proper home care for the senior in your life can bring relief and peace of mind to you, your family, and your loved one in need.   

What Is Age in Place Home Care?  

If your home is your sanctuary, then it would be natural to thrive within the walls of familiarity and the creature comforts your own home affords you. Age in place home care can range from a few hours a week to 24-hour assistance, all from the comfort of the home your loved one knows best. The routine and sense of calm such surroundings can offer are comforts that cannot be replicated in an assisted living facility. Comfort Keepers are caregivers expertly trained and serve the Clermont, Florida community with a loving spirit. 

These sweet souls will eagerly attend to your loved one's needs and are determined to bring joy to every home they visit. From meal preparation to making the bed, bathing, and grooming to transportation services, in-home care seeks to alleviate the stresses your loved one would otherwise experience when trying to accomplish everyday activities.   

What Does Assisted Living Look Like? 

Self-dependent adults who could benefit from a helping hand with day-to-day tasks can live together in an assisted living facility in which they rent or own their unit. These facilities offer both accommodation and care and encourage independent living and a community of seniors. Activities and communal areas are often provided. Such living situations can be pricier than in-home care and are tailored towards those seeking fewer services for everyday assistance.   

Safety and Stress Relief

While the vast majority of seniors wish to age at home, it can be especially important for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia. For the senior in your life who is experiencing diminished cognitive capacities, remaining in their own home can help to maintain a sense of structure and balance at an uncertain time. The gradual and sometimes acute decline that can accompany dementia can be ever-so-slightly eased when personal care services are provided at home. 

The reliable and trusting presence of a Comfort Keeper can offer a guiding hand to ensure your loved one's environment is a safe space, free from hazardous materials and areas, and comforting, nurturing walls from which they do not unwittingly wander. The comfort of age in place home care can ensure the physical safety of your loved one while also working to relieve the stress and uncertainty that often burdens both you and your sweet senior when dealing with a blurring of memory.
