What Are the Advantages of Home Care Over Senior Care in a Facility?
Staying home has a number of advantages over institutional care: freedom and independence are two of the biggest key differentiators. No matter how lovely the facility is, there are rules that are made by someone else. Other people are directing your life to one degree or another. With in-home care, you remain in charge of your schedule and activities. Staying home also means less exposure to illnesses and difficult personality conflicts, which can be stressful on the body. Particularly important for those with memory issues, home is familiar. Being in an unfamiliar place can be terrifying for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. The process of moving homes can be incredibly stressful, even for someone young and healthy. It can result in declining health and mental function, even depression.
Should facility living become the best option for your loved one, FirstLight Home Care is also available to come to the facility and provide services most facilities do not provide like errands, companionship, transportation to doctor visits, and trips to favorite stores or restaurants.
