Why Home Care may be right for You, A Friend, or Family Member?

The importance of in-home care via thehomecaredirectory.com

In-Home Care is rapidly becoming the most commonly asked for service among today’s aging population. In-Home Care involves a network of service providers who deliver personal care and maintenance right to the home. These service providers handle routine tasks including light housekeeping, meal preparation, errand running, mail sorting and a whole lot more. If desired, they can also provide assistance with personal care. Besides the elderly, In-Home Care is a wonderful service for new mothers and those with a short-term disability or illness. 

If you’re wondering whether In-Home Care makes sense, then consider this: 

It’s Convenient 
Companies providing In-Home Care (for example Right at Home DC) are springing up all across the country to meet the needs of the huge numbers of aging individuals so finding a reputable company is easy. When you meet with the contracted In-Home Care service provider, together you’ll work out a visitation schedule and a list of duties the provider will perform. That ensures the care you receive is personalized to meet your exact needs as well as your schedule. 

It’s Comfortable 
Because the In-Home Care provider comes to your home, you’re able to continue living independently, in familiar surroundings. It doesn’t matter whether you’re feeling ill or well, there’s something comforting about being in your home. An added benefit is that your In-Home Care service provider gives you something your life may be lacking – companionship. That’s right. You can have someone taking care of your home, your personal care and your need for company. In additon, there are many organizations that offer additional in-home services such as Medical Alert System - which provides medical alert systems to seniors and disabled persons with an aim to promote independent living. 

It’s Cost-Effective 
Dollar for dollar, you get real value when you contract the services of an In-Home Care provider (for example Right at Home DC). You have someone on whom you can rely to handle all the tedious tasks involved with living on your own. You won’t have to contract separately with an errand service, a personal chef, a housekeeper, a nutritionist, and someone to help you get out and about. Think of all the time you’ll save and all the money, too. 

It’s Secure 
With so many In-Home Care companies clamoring for your business and all making the same promises, how do you know if the company will actually live up to its claims? More importantly, how will you know which ones are honest? It’s sad but true that for as many reputable companies there are serving the elderly, there’s that many more that have been set up as a front to pull off the latest scam. Before contacting an In-Home Care company, first check to see if it’s insured, licensed and bonded. That’s the best way you have of protecting yourself and your home. 

It’s Peace of Mind 
Many children of aging parents choose In-Home Care because it gives them peace of mind. With their own lives to live, oftentimes in completely different states, many adult children can’t regularly pop-in to check on their parents and tend to their needs. With an In-Home Care service provider doing the checking, families are regularly updated as to the well-being of their parents. That alone is worth the price!
