3 Reasons to Choose Home Health Care for Your Loved One, St. Louis, Missouri

When a loved one needs more care than you can provide, you may be evaluating your options. Fortunately, there are  home health care agencies that specialize in providing everything from assistance with household tasks to nursing services. Along with several other benefits, your family member can receive a high level of care without leaving their beloved home for an assisted living facility.

3 Reasons to Choose Home Health Care

1. Independence

After decades of independent living, seniors sometimes find the transition to a nursing home difficult. If you want to help your family member maintain a sense of independence, home health care is your answer. Your loved one can still perform the activities within their ability, while gaining assistance for those that aren’t.

2. Comfort & Familiarity

home health careHome is where memories are. This is more than a sentimental consideration for seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s. Being in the familiar surroundings of home is therapeutic for patients who struggle with memory loss. It creates a sense of continuity, and allows your loved one to maintain valued friendships.

3. Flexibility

As your family members age, their needs change. At first, your loved one may only need assistance with chores or shopping. A medical event like a fall could increase those needs temporarily. With home health care services, you can customize the level of care as their needs fluctuate. You can also work with a home health agency to find a professional who is a good personality fit.
