When considering what options you have when your parents become older you have two main choices – one is a care home, where a team of staff look after an elderly group within a single facility, or, as we offer, there is home care, where a dedicated caregiver is assigned to watch over your loved one within their own home.
We strongly believe that staying at home is the best place for Mom and Dad. The home is a familiar environment to them, the sights and smells they have lived with. Ornaments and pictures line the walls that they themselves had chosen and placed there.
A home is place to welcome friends and family and to entertain guests. It is their choice of color and decoration.
Whilst at home should a loved one feel hungry they can eat, no need to wait for dedicated meal times. Should they wish to stroll around the garden then they can do so at their own free will. The word is freedom.
Another reason that home is the best place for Mom and Dad is that whilst they are receiving care they have a single dedicated caregiver watching them, not a team of staff whose attention is spread over many individuals. Also, who is to say that your Mom and Dad will enjoy being with these new people.
What about the location? Where your parents live now is of their choosing, if they are to be relocated will they be nearby, so family and friends can visit them easily.
It has been proven that financially home care beats many other forms of care for the elderly in affordability.
