How does in-home care differ from institutional care?
November 12, 2014
- Home care provides one-on-one attention, which is not
typical in an institutional setting. Caregiver/caregivers provide care that attends to specific personal needs, such as preventing falls, andering, bed sores, at-home injuries, and monitors the status of you or your loved one’s health and wellbeing.
- Home care prolongs independence allowing individuals to continue their activities of daily living at home versus on the schedule of an institution. Home care serves individuals that want to remain at home as long as possible, and helps make that wish a reality.
- Home care can improve the quality of life by allowing individuals to remain in their home, while maintaining a lifestyle that they are familiar with and enjoy. Home care clients can continue living with their belongings, and in an environment that is familiar, at HOME.
