How Home Care Assistance Benefits All Seniors

Home Care Assistance Benefits All Seniors

Conventional wisdom is that an elderly parent must be ill before you make the call to bring in home care. The truth is, home care offers much more than just medical care and its benefits extend far beyond the physical.

This article from Consumer Reports, How to Hire In-Home Help, explains the intricacies of what home health care has to offer and includes advice on a variety of topics, including:

  1. How to assess the type of care your loved one requires
  2. What in-home care costs
  3. Where to find the right provider
  4. How to decide if a particular caregiver is a good fit for your parent

Many seniors require only companion care but this level of care is as important as skilled care. That’s because companion careprovides the type of companionship that is vital to a senior’s health and well-being while taking some of the pressure off of adult children who have other responsibilities.

Read Consumer Reports’ How to Hire In-Home Help to learn more about the type of care your loved one needs.
