What is Home care?

Home care is otherwise called personal care, companion care or custodial care. Services include toileting, bathing, dressing, grooming, transportation, meal preparation and medication reminders.
Advantages of Home Care
Physical & Mental Well-being
Home care is for people who are at old age or suffering with illness or people who depend on someone to do their daily chores. These people also tend to be affected with the feeling of loneliness and depression. It will be exacerbated when they are staying at hospitals or care centers. Here home care is the best option for receiving the expected care at home itself with the same environment and loved ones. In fact, it significantly contributes to increased self-esteem which enhances happiness and overall physical & mental well-being.
Flexibility and Independence
Home care allows people to remain in their comfort zone and do their daily tasks at their own home. Additionally, it makes people flexible to do their work and specify what package of help they can get from home care services unlike hospitals and care centres.
Staying within Community
People enjoy a much better quality of life when they are living with their loved ones. Since they are in a familiar environment and community where in-home care services are offered, it brings happiness and peace to people resulting in increased healing or increased possibility to extend lives. It specifically suits to the people living with dementia.
Feel the Convenience
Home care service is a convenient thing for everyone, especially people who are in need of care takers. They can invite their friends to their home or go for a walk to spend sooting time with nature. It is more of their control unlike services from hospitals and other care centre options.
Besides, it is easier for friends and relatives to meet their loved ones at their homes than in hospitals and be void of restrictions like fixed timing, number of people allowed, etc.
Home care services are cheaper than hospital care and other serviced home options.
