Care homes vs. home care
Care at home is an option a lot of people consider when the time comes that their loved one cannot manage on their own. The other option is to place your friend or family member in a care home, but this is not suited to all people. Below, we will discuss the many benefits of live in care so you can determine whether this is the right solution for you.
Firstly, let’s establish what home care is. This involves regular visits from a home care worker to help with preparing meals, shopping, and personal care, or in some cases, it can involve 24-hour care at home, whereby the carer lives with the person. So, what are the benefits of this approach?
The main advantage is that the person gets to stay at home. This is something that is very important to a lot of people, as it allows them to maintain their independence and privacy. The majority of older people don’t want the upheaval and stress of moving to a new place. In some cases, it can cause severe anxiety.
Not only will the person stay closer to what is familiar to them, but also they will have full control over the care and support they receive. The carer is dedicated to them, and them alone, which isn’t the case with a care home.
Of course, the cost is a factor when considering any form of care. Costs do variably considerably for home care and care homes, however, when hiring a live-in carer the cost of your home will not be taken into account when calculating how much you need to pay, as is the case with a care home.
Finally, when assessing the benefits of care at home, you also need to look at the potential drawbacks of care homes. This includes the fact that the person can feel like they have lost some of their independence, they may not fit all of their belongings into their room, they may have to get rid of any pets, and they may not enjoy the other residents’ company.
