As more and more people age and begin to explore the maze of home care and alternative living options, many people discover that an in-home caregiver is a wonderful supplemental home care service that offers a number of unique benefits. Whether you or your loved one are in need of full time live-in help or simply a few visits here and there, whether you are in need of skilled nursing services or more simple assistance such as personal care, companionship, or transportation services, an in-home caregiver is an excellent choice.
Some of the benefits of having an In-Home Caregiver include:
High Level of Personalization
The biggest advantage of in-home caregivers is that they offer you complete personalization of service. No matter if your needs are medical, social, physical, or occupational, a professional in-home caregiver will be able to accommodate you. Skilled services, custodial services, frequency of visits, and scope of duty are all adjustable based on your own needs and considerations.
Impeccable Professional Standards
One of the biggest challenges involved with at-home care is finding the right providers. Our highly competent and professionally trained in-home caregivers undergo extensive interviews, background checks, proficiency testing, and skill validation prior to becoming a member of our team. They are managed, supervised, insured, and meet all State of Illinois requirements for certification and licensure. You can be rest assured that all of our caregivers live up to our impeccable standards of professional care.
Patients Enjoy Staying at Home More
Studies show time and time again that people, especially seniors and elderly adults, prefer staying in their own home when compared to the option of moving into an assisted living facility or having to change their living accommodations. In-home caregivers allow people to remain independent in their own homes and enjoy a higher quality of life, without compromising the level of personal care, companionship, and daily assistance they receive.
More Cost Effective
In a majority of cases, an in-home caregiver will be able to provide you or your loved one with the most cost effective solution to your home care needs. You won’t be paying for an expensive facility or any of the other overhead expenses that drive up the cost of facility-based care. You will simply be paying for the time and the expertise of a trained caregiver to deliver in-home care services that are specific to your needs. Not only will patients typically receive a higher overall level of personalized care when employing an in-home caregiver, but care can often times be provided at a significantly lower cost as well.
When the time comes to begin investigating home care and alternative living arrangements, make sure you fully research all of the options available to you and determine whether an in-home caregiver might make sense for you or your loved one. In most cases, an in-home caregiver can provide an excellent balance of high quality home care services at a price that is substantially more affordable than facility-based care.
