What is home care?
Care provided in the comfort and security of your home through a licensed agency gives you, your family and friends a sense of control and peace of mind. Home care provides a wide range of health and social services to patients and teaches families to help care for their family member. Home care is personalized care that reduces the anxiety and stress associated with most forms of healthcare and allows a maximum amount of freedom for the individual. In most cases, home care also means significant savings in the cost of care when compared to a hospital setting or nursing home.
Millions of Americans rely on home care to stay out of a hospital, nursing home, rest home or other institution and remain in the comfort of their own homes. There is no more important social value than keeping families together, particularly in a time of illness. There is much scientific evidence that patients heal more quickly at home and there is very high consumer satisfaction associated with care delivered in the home.
Home care not only helps add years to life but also life to years. Studies in the US and abroad show that those receiving homecare have a higher rate of life satisfaction.
