In Home care addresses the problems individuals face when making the decision to remain at home or enter a long-term care facility. Home care can often be less expensive than a long-term care facility. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, facility costs average approximately $6,500 per month. At In-Home Health Care Services we recognize that these monthly costs are difficult to manage from both a financial and emotional standpoint. Because our services are catered to the specific needs of a client, an individual who only needs a few hours of assistance a day pays for only those few hours. This can equate to thousands of dollars in savings versus facility placement.
Finally, fulfilling a client’s desire to remain at home facilitates healing time, increased mental health, increased feelings of dignity and a higher quality of life. Home care allows for the maximum amount of freedom for an individual. Clients at home can remain engaged with their usual activities while remaining the comfort of their own homes.
From cost savings to an increased sense of dignity, there are many benefits to choosing in home care for your family member. To discuss more of these benefits, as well as a customized plan of care for your loved one’s needs, contact In-Home Health Care Services today.
