When your loved one's health or independence declines, you might make the decision to step in and provide care. Although rewarding at first, this new role can feel overwhelming as it takes a lot of time and energy from both parties. In addition, meeting all of their needs while also managing your own personal life can be an extremely difficult task. Perhaps these difficulties have led you and your family to search for alternative care options. For most families, the first options they consider include communal living facilities and nursing homes. However, studies have shown that most seniors prefer to remain at home through their final years. At Comfort Keepers Manhattan, we make this possible by providing in-home care services, so your loved ones can remain where they feel most safe and comfortable.

Why In-Home Care is a Better Option for Seniors Over Communal Living

So, what makes in-home care a better option than communal living facilities? In recent years, more people have realized that there are more benefits for seniors to remain at home with care than move away to nursing homes. Here are some reasons why:

  • With the number of seniors in nursing homes, many have to wait for attention from their caregivers. With in-home care services, caregivers are always focused on one client per shift, so there is never a competition for attention. This constant observation results in a reduced number of harmful falls since there is always someone watching.
  • Nursing homes and communal living facilities are often much more expensive than in-home care. This is because nursing homes offer live-in facilities and have special equipment that can be used for senior care. But this also means that you’re paying for equipment and services that your parents don’t necessarily need. 
  • Your parents will also feel more comfortable staying at home than moving to a communal living facility. There's simply nothing like sitting on your favorite couch and being surrounded by cherished photos and memories. Relocation can also be a stressful process, so in-home care provides a solution to avoid this hassle.
