The Many Benifits of Senior Care at Home

Why in home Care?
We all have loved ones in our lives that are struggling with the aging process often these loved ones are integral to our family and especially our children. There becomes a point where we are aware that daily activities and self-care are difficult for these family members. As they struggle – we do for. We want to ensure they maintain their lifestyle and independence. However with our responsibilities we know we don’t have the time to take care of them or assist them.
Why in home care?
Most of the time, people associates positive feelings with home. A person confined to a hospital or nursing home may frequently ask to go home. On the other hand, when people are healthy and vibrant, they thrive on the sanctity of home and the pleasantries of having their own special place.
Choosing a Caregiver
Regardless of the depth needed. It’s important to remember that there are private companies like My Sisters Choice that exist to help families and loved ones keep their dignity, home and way of life.

Are You considering In-Home Care Services for a Loved One?

There are a multitude of benefits to be gained from professional in-home care services. At My Sister’s Choice, our professional Companions and Personal caregivers will encourage your loved one to pursue interests and to stay active. We also support a wide diversity of senior needs which can be customized specifically for you and your family.

Our professional care services offer responsiveness, meaning that  we are more readily able to respond to the needs of our seniors, than a family member who may have a full-time job and other commitments. In fact, it is not unusual for the caregiver to be the first person to notice a change in behavior or appearance that warrants a visit to the doctor or even to the emergency room. Providing diligent care is our utmost concern and our caregivers are trained to observe and to respond proactively in the best interest of our seniors.

in private residences and assisted living communities, nursing facilities, rehabilitation centers, and hospitals.

Maybe you never intended to discuss in-home senior care services.

More and more frequently, people are having these discussions, particularly when an elderly family member is facing decreased mobility or a health crisis. While many families choose to rally together and appoint one member as the primary caregiver, this can take a massive toll on that person’s well-being and can eventually cause them to feel burdened and resentful.

Too many families miss out on the option to use senior care in the home because they don’t know how beneficial the help of an experienced caregiver can be.

A Few Reasons … to choose homecare for your loved ones

It is delivered at home
Most of the time, people associates positive feelings with home. A person confined to a hospital or nursing home may frequently ask to go home. On the other hand, when people are healthy and vibrant, they thrive on the sanctity of home and the pleasantries of having their own special place.
Home care promotes healing
There is abundant evidence that patients heal more quickly at home.
Home care reduces stress
Living away from home at any age can increase anxiety and stress; home care frequently has the opposite effect. The impact is even greater for seniors, many of whom have lived in their homes for generations.
Home care is, in many cases, less expensive than other forms of care for the elderly
The evidence is convincing that, for many services, home care is less expensive than other forms of care. In general, home care costs only one-fourth as much as nursing home placement for comparable issues.
Home care is personalized care
Home care is tailored to the needs of each individual. It is delivered on a case-by-case basis.
Home care keeps families together
There is no more important social value. It is particularly important in times of illness.
Home care allows a maximum amount of freedom for the individual
Homecare is always preferable over nursing homes and hospitals, partially because they can only offer standard and regimented care. Your loved one will thrive under our caregivers’ personalized attention to their individual likes and requirements.
Home care is one of the most effective ways to provide assistance to seniors
There is very high consumer satisfaction associated with care delivered in the home.
Home care is efficient
By bringing senior services home, your aging loved one does not generate food, room and other living expenses.
Home care serves to keep the elderly independent
No one wants to be totally dependent on the help of another. With some assistance, seniors can continue to function as viable members of society.
Home care prevents or postpones institutionalization
Few patients choose to be placed in a nursing home unless it’s the only place where they can obtain the 24-hour care they need.
Home care involves the entire family when determining your senior's care plan
The family is encouraged to participate in helping their loved one get the most out of life.
Home care extends life
A study by the U.S. General Accounting Office has established that people receiving home care tend to live longer and have a better quality of life. Not only does homecare add “years to life,” but it also adds “life to years.”
Home care is provided by special people
Caregivers at My Sister’s Choice view their work, not as a job or profession, but as a calling. They are highly trained and dedicated to their work and to the people whom they serve.
