Why Home Care?

  • It is delivered at home.

    There are such positive feelings that all of us associate with being home. When we are not feeling well, most of us ask to go home. When we are feeling well, we enjoy the sanctity of our residences and the joy of being with our loved ones.  Home care is also tailored to the needs of each individual. It is delivered on a one-to-one basis.  Hospitals and nursing homes offer more regimented, regulated environments. Home care offers a reassuring, individualized setting.

  • Home care involves the individual and the family in the care that is delivered.

    The patient and his family are taught to participate in their health care.  They are taught how to get well, and how to stay that way.

  • Home care serves to keep the elderly independent.

    None of us want to be totally dependent and helpless. With some assistance, seniors can continue to function as viable members of society.  Few patients choose to be placed in a nursing home, unless it’s the only place where they can obtain the 24-hour care that they need.

  • Home care promotes healing.

    There is abundant evidence that patients heal more quickly at home.  Unlike most forms of health care which can increase anxiety and stress, home care frequently has the opposite effect.

  • Home care is one of the most effective forms of health care.

    There is very high consumer satisfaction associated with care delivered in the home.

  • Home care is an efficient form of health care.

    By bringing health services home, the patient does not generate board and room expenses. The patient and/or his family supply the food and tend to the individual’s other needs. Technology now has developed to the point where many services, once only available in a hospital, can be offered at home.

  • Home care is, in many cases, less expensive than other forms of care.

    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-tenth as much as hospitalization and only one-fourth as much as nursing home placement to deal with comparable health problems.
