Bringing Assisted Living to the Home in Peoria, IL

No one likes to think about the effects aging has on their loved ones, especially when it comes to deciding about their living arrangement. This is one of the biggest and most difficult decisions families are likely to make for a loved one. For most families, the options are either assisted living or in-home care. Here are some of the main benefits of in-home care and differences to keep in mind as you make your decision.

Close to family and friends

Most seniors would choose to age in place. They can enjoy their social environments, including visits from their family members and friends. However, an assisted living facility may mean fewer visitors and only during visiting hours. For this reason, many seniors would choose to remain in the place they love, while receiving a helping hand from a professional caregiver to stay safe and comfortable. 

Age in a comfortable environment

Seniors who have lived in the same home for years feel comfortable and safe in their familiar environment, and it would be disruptive and stressful for them to move to a new location. Entering an assisted living facility would require your loved one to part with their home and many of their belongings and adapt to a strange new place. Professional caregivers can provide the care they need while increasing home safety, so you can encourage your loved ones to remain in the comfort of their homes.

Sense of independence

For seniors who feel they have lost some of their independence, moving to assisted living may make them feel completely lost. Many assisted living facilities have routines and schedules for activities, and your loved one may no longer be able to do the things they enjoy. For example, they may have scheduled meals and if your loved one enjoys cooking, they will no longer be able to in a facility. With in-home care, a caregiver can assist your loved one with cooking and other tasks to ensure it is done safely and allows them greater independence. Remaining as independent as possible is essential for seniors who want to maintain their best quality of life. 

Quiet living space

In an assisted living facility, your loved one will live in a community with other seniors, which can be upsetting if they enjoy their personal space and quiet surroundings. With in-home care, your loved ones can still enjoy their peaceful space with socialization on their terms and avoid listening to arguments or unwanted noise around them.

Maintain control 

When your loved one lives in an assisted living facility, your family has less control over the care they receive. In-home care allows selected caregivers to fit your loved one’s personality and needs, while your family maintains control over any big decisions impacting their care and happiness. Families are also involved in creating a customized care plan tailored to their loved one’s needs to ensure they receive the care and support they need.
