There are many benefits to receiving non-medical in home care and home health care. Initially, a caregiver provides a senior with the greatest amount of independence and autonomy. Further, with home care, seniors typically have a great deal of control over their care and are a key part in the care process. According to the National Institute of Health, on average, seniors who receive professional care also receive more support and have far more interaction with family and friends than those who have moved into a care facility.
The primary reason seniors seek support is to receive help in areas of their life in which they are having difficulty. Typical areas of support include light housekeeping, laundry, running errands, medication management, cooking, and transportation. The amount of support needed and the time required is different for every senior. Some require a half and hour or hour a week while others need 20-40 hours. Other seniors, such as those with late-stage dementia, may require 24-hour support.
A few questions your loved one should ask to decide if they are ready for home care include:
- Do they need help with daily tasks but desire to remain in their own home?
- Do they need help getting to and from the store, appointments, or social engagements?
- Do they need help monitoring or caring for a medical condition or their medication?
- Do they need help with personal care, including toileting, bathing, grooming, or dressing?
- Could they use some help preparing healthy, nutritious meals?
- Would they benefit from social or emotional support?
Note that seniors can be highly active and vibrant and still receive great benefits from home care. The idea that seniors need to be in a wheelchair, bedridden, or socially isolated in order to receive care is simply a myth. In truth, seniors with these conditions would most certainly benefit from in home care support, but tens of millions of other seniors could maximize their independence and quality of life by receiving support before their condition ever gets to that point.
