If your loved one needs around-the-clock care, you may be considering the options for their care. The two best options are 24-hour home care or an assisted living facility. Seniors that need more specialized care and attention, seniors who may need assistance during the night, seniors with mobility issues or those who may wander at night can benefit from 24-hour home care. Family members might not have the ability to be there 24/7 with their loved ones and need adequate sleep themselves, so having a caregiver around the clock can provide peace of mind. 24-hour home care can provide many of the same benefits as assisted living but how do you choose? Here are four reasons to choose 24-hour home over assisted living facilities:
1. Personal attention—At an assisted living facility, your loved one receives care from different nurses and caregivers who must divide their time among other seniors. With 24-hour home care, your loved one will be the only priority in their own home and receive care from one compassionate caregiver. If they need assistance with anything or someone to talk to, they are provided with the personal attention they need from their caregiver. We want to take away the feeling of a facility and have your loved ones feel safe in their own home while receiving the care they need 24/7.
2. Age in place—Many seniors would rather age in place in the comfort of their own homes. 24-hour home care can provide a sense of independence and familiarity, especially for those suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s, who can become anxious and confused when life is disrupted. It can be extremely comforting to be in familiar surroundings and have consistent routines every day. With 24-hour home care, your loved ones can continue to sleep in their bed, relax on their porch, and spend time with family and friends in their own homes.
3. Safe and secure— Assisted living facilities are often busy places and may be filled with different people all day long, including staff members, other residents, and visitors. Your loved one should feel safe and comfortable in their environment. However, in a facility, they may not have a lock on their door and be surrounded by strangers which can make them uncomfortable. 24-hour home care provides your loved ones with the vital safety and security they deserve. With in-home care, they are also the ones along with their caregiver to control who comes in and out of their home when they choose. You’ll also be assured knowing who is there with your loved ones and that they are cared for at any given time.
4. Cost-effective—The costs of an assisted living facility include room and board plus care, and other expenses. These costs can add up quickly. The only thing you’re paying for with 24-hour home care is personalized, quality care from a compassionate caregiver, especially if your loved one needs around-the-clock care, this is a cost-effective option. With 24-hour care, they have the bonus of being in their home, eating the food they choose, sleeping in their bed, and more.
