5 Distinct Benefits of Home Care for a Loved One, Manhattan, New York

While the phrase “nursing home” doesn’t always get the best reception, there are actually many types of assisted living — and each has its own strengths. Deciding that a loved one needs a caregiver is not to be made lightly, but when the time comes to embrace an option like home care, the benefits will restore your sense of security and bring ease into your loved one’s life.

Home care has many of the benefits of conventional nursing services while allowing your loved one to continue living at home. Many families choose this type of assisted living because it allows for a lot of flexibility. Here are some of the top benefits:

  • Part-Time & Around-the-Clock Home Care: Your elderly loved one may only need help with a few activities, but otherwise be fine living alone. In this case, they may only need a caregiver for a few hours per week. Home care is flexible enough to provide live-in services as well.

  • Keep Pets: Pets are well known for relieving stress and improving the quality of life for their owners. They aren’t always allowed in assisted living communities, but with home care, your loved one can continue living with their four-legged friend and even get help walking, feeding, or cleaning up after them.

  • home careGet Help With Basic Needs: A caregiver will assist your elderly loved one with a variety of tasks, which can be as personal as bathing and dressing or focus more on household management, such as meal preparation, grocery shopping, and light cleaning.

  • Enjoy Privacy: One of the most important aspects of home care is that it allows patients to retain their independence and enjoy the privacy of their own home.

  • See Family Regularly: While receiving home care, your loved one will be able to spend the same amount of time with you and other family members. Life can go on as usual, but with even more security.
