Enabling older people to remain independent for as long as possible has a host of proven benefits.
Studies show that seniors who are able to continue living in their own home and carry on with their social life and hobbies have a better quality of life. They are also less prone to loneliness (which research has shown can be as deadly as obesity when it comes to shortening life and reducing its quality).
For many people, it really is a case of "use it or lose it": maintaining as much mobility and being as active as possible as the years go on is critical to staving off a number of medical issues, as well as promoting independence. Home care provides a fantastic way of giving help where needed, at the same time as allowing people to do as much as they possibly can for themselves.
Tailored Home Care That Allows People To Lead Their Own Lives
Just because people may need a little assistance with bathing, or would be safer with some night care "just in case", there's no reason why they can't continue to enjoy many of the things they used to do, to the very best of their ability.
Sensitive home care helps clients with tasks which would otherwise present insurmountable barriers or expose them to unacceptable levels of risk. Rather than having their independence curtailed (as can happen in a residential facility), clients can still do whatever they wish, just with the safety net of home care on hand if required.
Set Your Own Routine With Home Care
Because home care is provided (as the name suggests), in the home, clients set their own timetable and routine. From flexible rising times through to meals when required, showers or baths on demand and the freedom to leave the house at any time, home care gives clients the chance to live their life as independently as possible.
If you or a loved one recognises the need for some additional assistance at times but don't want to endure lifestyle restrictions and limitations as a result, home care could be the answer to your requirements.
