What is Home Care Assistance?
A 2011 study conducted by AARP showed that 90% of individuals over age 65 prefer to age in their own home for as long as possible. Did you know senior home care services can help honor that preference?
Home care offers a more personalized alternative to nursing homes and assisted living communities. It provides a variety of services such as personal care, homemaking, companionship, and more to individuals living at home, so they can remain comfortable and independent for as long as possible. It is a service especially beneficial to those who are growing older, are chronically ill, recovering from a surgery, or living with a disability. Do you know someone who needs support with some daily tasks, but does not necessarily need to be in a nursing home or hospital? Home care could be a great option for them.
