The Benefits of Home Care Over Institutional Care


Opting for a home care service provider in Hawaii for your loved ones is not only a significant decision but also an opportunity to enhance their quality of life. Unlike nursing homes, which often employ a one-size-fits-all approach, home care is personalized, catering to individual needs and preferences. This approach fosters not just health but also happiness, comfort, and personal freedom.

Providing personal care is an area where home care significantly outshines institutional care. With home care, help with tasks like bathing, grooming, housekeeping, and meal preparation is undertaken in a familiar, comfortable environment that respects the individual’s privacy and dignity. Such personalized attention is rarely attainable in an institutionalized setting.

Being a healthcare service provider in Hawaii, home care also delivers professional medical care on a personal level. From regular health check-ups to specialized therapies, your loved ones receive all necessary medical attention right at home. This is especially advantageous compared to the often impersonal and overwhelming environment of nursing homes.

Additionally, home care fosters independence, a quality often limited in institutional care. The freedom to maintain personal daily routines, lifestyle choices, and the comfort of staying in a familiar environment significantly promote emotional well-being. Last but not least, home care provides a relationship-based caregiving approach. In comparison, institutional care, due to its volume-focused model, often lacks this crucial aspect.

Choosing the right care is paramount. Serving with compassion and professionalism, Helping Hands Hale advocates for home care, offering home care services tailor-made for your loved ones. Let care come home, choosing freedom, dignity, and familiarity over the stringent confines of institutional care. Trust us for a future where your loved ones thrive.

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.
