Wondering whether in-home senior care makes sense for your loved one or loved ones? There are quite a few benefits of in-home services offered by the hands of qualified, trained companions – not all of them immediately obvious. Here are five key reasons families and their loved ones often find Albuquerque in-home care beneficial:
Reduced Reluctance to Care
For many seniors, the idea of assisted living means going into a nursing home or an extended care facility that takes them out of their home. At Comfort Keepers, we believe in providing specialized care for your loved one’s unique needs in an environment which they feel comfortable – their home! Nothing beats the comforts of being at home, and by offering care that doesn’t take them away from their favorite place, your loved one will be more open to the idea of getting a little help.
Many times at a senior care facility, your loved one may not receive the level of one-on-one care you would have hoped for. With in-home caregiving, your loved one’s care will be the only focus. You can have peace of mind knowing that someone is there around-the-clock ensuring all your loved one’s needs are met. From transportation and cooking to light housekeeping, a Comfort Keeper® will be dedicated to making sure your loved one receives an exceptional level of care and attention.
Most seniors will find themselves far more comfortable with in-home care than in a nursing home or retirement facility. There are plenty of well-outfitted, comfortable, pleasant retirement homes out there, but there’s something uniquely relaxing and comforting about remaining in your home that no alternative can beat.
It’s easier to adjust to the preferences and idiosyncrasies of a senior with in-home care than with the alternatives. With the added flexibility and one-on-one care provided by a Comfort Keeper®, your loved one’s caregiver will have an opportunity to learn more about your loved one’s likes, dislikes, and preferences to create a truly customized plan for their needs.
The familiarity of a family home or familiar living space can help keep your loved one in better mental health than they’d be elsewhere. Moving is considered one of the greatest stressors in life, and sparing your loved one that stress can help keep their health and their spirits high.
