The Benefits of Home Care for Immobile People

For people who are immobile, home care can be the best solution for their needs. Unlike an assisted living facility, home care provides one-on-one personal care and attention in a familiar environment. Most, if not all, assisted living facilities require people to have their own care through an agency if they are immobile so people are paying significant costs. In today’s article, 4 Seasons Home Care discusses how we can help people who are immobile receive high quality care in their own homes.

Familiar Environment

One of the key advantages of home care is that it allows the client to remain in a familiar environment with which they are comfortable. This can have a positive effect on their mental health and well-being as they adjust to their new lifestyle. Additionally, this familiarity allows them to participate in activities that are meaningful to them such as cooking, gardening and socializing.

Personal Care and Attention

In-home care also provides personalized attention and care from qualified professionals who specialize in caring for immobile people. They are able to provide assistance with daily tasks such as bathing, dressing, toileting and transferring from bed to wheelchair or vice versa. 4 Seasons Home Care caregivers are home care professionals who provide emotional support during this difficult time, as well as helping clients stay active and engaged through adapted activities that suit their individual needs. Home care also promotes the healing process. Research studies have shown that patients can recuperate and heal faster and much more comfortably when they’re at home, compared to staying in a hospital or a nursing home. There’s also less chance of needing the services of the hospital again when their recovery process is at home.

Cost Considerations

People are who immobile are generally not accepted for residency in assisted living facilities without arranging for a home care company to provide personal care at the facility. Paying for an assisted living facility and home care simultaneously can result in extremely high out of pocket costs. Families can save money by arranging for care for their loved one in the home, foregoing assisted living that does not meet their needs.

Peace of Mind

Finally, with home care comes peace of mind knowing that your loved one is being taken care of by trained professionals at all times. This reassurance can reduce stress levels significantly during this difficult period while also allowing family members more freedom to live their lives without worrying about their loved ones safety or wellbeing.
