What Are the Advantages of Home Care Versus Senior Care in a Facility?
Freedom! There are terrific benefits, both physically and emotionally, from remaining in the familiar surroundings of one’s own home. Seniors can remain active longer when they can keep their own schedules, and be more mobile due to their intimate knowledge of the ‘lay of the land’ inside their home. It’s because they’re so well-versed in the daily maneuvers they need to get around in their familiar living space.
Staying in your own home has been associated with good emotional health. So many seniors experience depression when moved into nursing homes. This is known to adversely affect both their health and quality of life.
At FirstLight, we’ve had families ask us specifically to furnish extra companion care above and beyond the assistance they are already using. We go to assisted living facilities, nursing homes, or retirement communities to provide backup for services that these places might not provide. We provide the necessities such as taking you out on your rounds, whether to the doctor or to your favorite restaurant. Need us to run your errands? We are ready for you!
Lean on FirstLight when you need us for companion care or senior care in St. Augustine, Jacksonville, or nearby communities.
