When your loved one can no longer care for him or herself, what are your
options? In the past, many families faced the difficult decision of putting
a loved one in a nursing facility, but now, more people are choosing
in-home care in Philadelphia. In-home care offers many benefits for both seniors and their loved ones,
and the good news is that support services are available. Consider these
advantages of choosing in-home elderly care for your loved one.
Leaving a treasured home can be very difficult on seniors. When you choose
in-home care, your loved one gets to stay in the comfort of home, surrounded by memories,
familiar neighbors, and his or her own belongings. Seniors who stay at
home tend to experience less depression than seniors in nursing care facilities,
and they also benefit from being isolated against the risk of infection
that is inherent in group living situations.
In-home care providers can give your loved one any kind of care he or she
needs. If your loved one simply needs help with household duties, the
care provider can cook meals, do housework, and help with errands. If
your loved one needs specialized care, such as disabilities care, then
your caregiver can provide that. Assistance with personal care is also
available. For the family, this means that you always have support in
making sure your loved one’s needs are being met and that you can
relax knowing that he or she is in good hands when you can’t be around.
No Visitation Restrictions
When your loved one moves to a senior facility, there may be restrictions
on when family and friends can visit. With in-home care, you can visit
your loved one any time and stay for as long as you like without interference.

the right level of care for your family’s needs, from our Flexi-Rest
