Before modern medicine, it was rare to be admitted to a hospital and was much more common to have your health attended to in your own home. We are starting to revert back to that type of health care, especially with the new government regulated need for reduced hospital stays and readmissions.
Home care is supportive care that is provided wherever an individual lives, whether that is in their home, a retirement community or a care facility. It is a helpful service that can be provided for seniors, chronically ill children or adults, and those who are recovering from surgery or are disabled.
The home care solution is one that helps support and prolong quality of life. There is nothing like being in the safety and comfort of your own home, especially when you are going through difficult health times. According to the AARP, 83% of older Americans want to continue living at home for the rest of their lives and 42% of seniors over 80 rely on professionals. Conditions requiring home health care most frequently include heart disease, diabetes, cerebral vascular diseases, chronic ulcer of the skin, osteoarthritis and hypertension.
There are so many great benefits of home care that make it one of the best solutions when it comes to caring for a loved one in need. Some of those benefits include:
