Live-In Home Care
Are you considering moving an aging family member to a nursing home or assisted living facility?
You should know that those aren’t your only options for long-term care. In fact, live-care can allow your loved one to remain safe and comfortable at home, regardless of their physical or cognitive impairments
The Benefits of Aging at Home
Research suggests that nearly 90% of American adults over the age of 65 want to remain in their own homes as they age. Even among those who require day-to-day assistance and personal care, 82% would prefer to stay at home.
Their desire is understandable, as aging in place has many obvious benefits, including:
Considering these advantages, it’s not surprising that seniors who age in place often exhibit improved levels of cognition, better functioning in daily living activities, decreased levels of depression, and lower rates of incontinence compared to older adults aging in nursing home settings.
Obstacles to Aging in Place
Aging in place can be difficult for some seniors, especially those who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, chronic illness, or mobility issues.
According to a recent survey conducted by AARP, nearly two in 10 Americans aged 70 and older say they either can’t live independently and accomplish daily tasks without assistance or find it difficult to do so
Other barriers to aging in place include a lack of reliable transportation to shop, attend medical appointments, and run errands, as well as social isolation that can lead to depression and accelerated mental decline.
How Live-In Care Helps People Age in Place
Live-in care can help eliminate many of the obstacles to aging in place by providing your loved one with all of the one-on-one personal assistance, non-medical support, and companionship they need to remain safe and comfortable in their own home:
- Meal planning and preparation
- Medication management.
- Assistance with bathing, toileting, and all other daily personal task.
- Light housekeeping/laundry.
- Encouraging exercise, as directed by their healthcare provider.
- Escorts to doctor’s appointments and social engagements.
- Help with shopping and errands.
- Companionship, including friendly conversation about sports, news, and other interests.
- Ensuring you’re apprised of any changes in mental or physical abilities/condition.
- Peace of mind that comes from knowing care is always available.
