4 Benefits of In-Home Senior Care

4 Benefits of In-Home Senior Care - Blog - Balanced Home Care New - folks

For many baby boomers, watching parents age can be a source of sadness.  As moms and dads slow down, their needs increase, leaving families with very difficult decisions to make.  In the beginning, family members might question things about their parents’ ability to take medication correctly, plan and prepare meals, and handle sensitive financial issues.  As time passes, the initial concerns may be combined with other areas of worry regarding a parent’s ability to manage self-care (hygiene) and maintain mobility.  When these situations arise, family members often consider nursing homes as a possible solution.  At Balanced Home Care, we provide comprehensive and compassionate care to clients in their own home.  

Here are some of the benefits of in-home senior care:

  1. Dignity - Staying at home often provides our clients with a certain sense of dignity that would be lost if they were to move to a nursing home.
  2. Continuity - Not having to move provides our clients with a sense of continuity, which can be a source of comfort.  Having to learn a new environment in a nursing home can be overwhelming.
  3. Family - For family members, having Mom or Dad or Grandma or Grandpa remain in the family home can be very comforting.  The family won’t have to rely on memories and can continue to enjoy their presence in their own home.
  4. Tranquility - As people age, they  generally value peace and quiet over other comforts.  Hearing noises from neighbors in a nursing home, or beeps and dings from medical equipment can be bothersome.  At home, our clients enjoy the environment that they created and have enjoyed for years.

While our list is certainly not exhaustive, it provides an overview of some of the benefits to loved ones who receive care in their own home as they age.  At Balanced Home Care, our expert staff is comprised of extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and trusted professionals who take pride in helping your loved one with all that is necessary as they lose the ability to manage their daily activities.
