Homecare services mean that your loved one doesn’t have to make many lifestyle changes to receive support and assistance they may need for aspects of day to day life. Support can be provided for as little as an hour or two a week, or it could be more intensive with a service like live-in care where a carer will be there around the clock. Here are 5 great benefits of homecare services:
1) Familiar Surroundings
The most important aspect of homecare services is that your loved one gets to remain in their own home. They will be able to continue to live as they are used to, surrounded by their own comforts, the neighbours they’ve known for years, where they hold cherished memories and where you and the family come to visit. This familiarity is especially important with conditions affecting memory loss like dementia.
2) More Independence
One of the main benefits of homecare services is keeping the independence your loved one has. Having homecare services doesn’t alter daily routines and your loved ones keep their independence, choosing to get up, eat, socialise and sleep when they want to. If your loved one chooses, a support worker can also assist with trips out if they like to live an active and social life.
3) Personalised Care
The care and support your loved one requires will be as individual as they are. With homecare services they will receive personalised care tailored to them, their requirements and how they live their day to day life. As homecare support is completely flexible, you or your loved one can change your mind and alter anything about their support when you wish.
4) Sharing Responsibility
For many people the first support and care they receive may be from their husband, wife or children. Many times those family members want to remain the main carer of a loved one, and with homecare services, support workers can share the responsibility of care with them. Carers can take on as much care of your loved one as wished; only stepping in to provide support when you want them to.
5) Adaptable Support
It is understandably difficult and sometimes even a bit embarrassing to accept help for aspects of day to day life. With homecare services your loved one can choose as little or as much support as they require. As they get more comfortable receiving assistance or if their needs change additional services can be easily added in the future. These may include things like such as extra support with personal care, housekeeping tasks or specialist care services required for those affected by dementia, or other long-term health conditions.
