THE BENEFITS OF HEALTHCARE AT HOME
In-Home healthcare is the most comfortable way to get well and has been proven most effective in research studies.
Thanks to technology, many medical services that used to be done only at a medical facility can now be done in the comfort of your home.
Here we outline the many benefits patients have expressed about in-home healthcare. We invite you to read on, do some research, then contact us for a consultation.
The Feeling of ‘HOME’ – Home is relaxed, comfortable and much more positive-feeling than a medical office. When you’re feeling ill, you just want to be at home, and that’s right where you should be. Instead of increasing levels of stress and anxiety like hospitals or doctor offices, home healthcare does the opposite, helping to focus on relief and recovery.
Preventing or Postponing Institutionalization – Nursing homes used to be the only way to receive for patients to receive the care they need, but few want to go there. In-home healthcare is a wonderful alternative in many cases, with many studies proving that people actual heal faster and more fully at home.
Independence for the Elderly – Feeling helpless and alone is common with elderly people and no one wants that for their loved ones. Home healthcare professionals give independence and social interaction while providing a safe, comfortable environment.
Maximum Freedom – Care at home provides much more freedom than a facility’s regimented schedules and rules. With the help of in-home healthcare services, you continue living life on your terms.
Active Involvement in Healthcare Decisions – With home healthcare, patients and their families are educated on how to actively participate in decisions that affect their care. Learn how to get well, and stay that way.
Special People Take Care of You – Home healthcare professionals see their jobs as a ‘calling’, like they were meant to do it. It’s not a job at all. Highly-trained in-home nurses, therapists and aides are dedicated to caring for their patients in the best way possible.
Home Care is Affordable – Home healthcare services typically cost one-tenth of hospitalization and one-fourth of nursing home care to deal with similar medical issues. Not only is it less expensive than hospitals or nursing facilities, it also cuts down travel expenses significantly.
In-Home Healthcare Extends Life – Getting well at home adds both “years to life” and “life to years”. A study by the US General Accounting Office shows that people who receive care at home tend to live longer, with a better quality of life.
Medicare Beneficiaries can receive in-home healthcare at NO COST to the person needing care.
