Reasons Why Home Care Is the Better Option for Your Aging Parents

Reasons Why Home Care Is the Better Option for Your Aging Parents
Part of aging is the need to be assisted in your everyday living. That is why we know that most of you are weighing the benefits of entrusting your parents to home care providers or assisted living facilities.

As a Home Care Service Provider in Hawaii, Helping Hands Hale believes that home care is better for your aging loved ones. We do not just say this because we engage in the trade ourselves. We prefer giving home care services in the first place because we saw the advantages it gave our clients.

Here are the benefits:

  • Affordability

    You can save a ton when you invest in home care rather than in skilled nursing facilities. This is because you can customize on your cost. With a home care service provider, you are the master of your own expenses. When your parents are in a facility, they charge extra for the food and other services. But when your parent is in their own home, you are in charge of the expenditures. Think of it as only having to pay for the services of your caregiver and you do not have to worry about the rest.

  • Convenience

    Unlike other care services for older adults, home care gives your parents the privilege of being in their own home, following their own rules. Other than that, you can take charge of the kind of care your parents need. If they need to be assisted in their daily living, the caregiver can be there to do exactly what needs to be addressed. These professional caregivers provide their clients’ aid as well as the independence they deserve.

  • Safety

    When you let a stranger in your house, we are all aware that our safety may be compromised. Why is that so? It is because we do not know the background of the ones visiting. This is the primary concern of older adults why they prefer to be in assisted living facilities. However, if your home care service provider is as trusted as our In-Home Care Service Provider in Big Island, Hawaii, you will never worry about your safety. We make sure to do intensive background checks on our employees. We are keen on employing not only trusted individuals but also those who are competent on the job.

  • Happiness

    Elderly individuals who are in a place where they feel comfortable in are happier in life. And if they are happier, they heal quicker or even have better dispositions than those who are depressed. As they say, there really is no place like home. These individuals have more time to be themselves and do the things they like. They are not forced to participate in activities.

How about you, why do you prefer having home care services than sending your parents to assisted living facilities? Share your experience.

The state of Hawaii has determined that most caregivers are considered employees and in order to LEGALLY hire and pay your OWN caregiver, you must have a company established with State and Federal tax ID numbers. In addition to their hourly pay you must also pay for Workers Compensation Insurance, Temporary Disability Insurance, General Liability Insurance, and if the caregiver works more than 20 hours per week you must also provide medical insurance for each caregiver. Therefore; choosing an established agency such as Helping Hands Hale is an affordable and easy solution that will save you time, money, and relief from being in violation of State and Federal Labor Laws.
