Why In-home Care Is Better Than You Think

Why In-home Care Is Better Than You Think

As a responsible and loving adult that you are, it is only right to give back to your aging parents. You want to make sure that you are by their side always, keeping them company, and creating wonderful memories together. But this isn’t always possible, especially because life gets in the way. What can you do to continue giving them care and attention? Traditionally, a nursing care is the primary go-to for the public. But nowadays, more and more people are opting for in-home care over nursing home. The benefits that are only found in home care are just too good to pass up. Here are some of the benefits that should lead you to consider choosing in-home care:

  • One-on-One Attention

    One of the benefits of home care is that caregivers can give all their attention to one patient. In nursing homes, the caregiver-to-patient ratio might be 1:2, which may mean limited attention given to seniors at the nursing home. Coupled with other responsibilities, there are tendencies that seniors are overlooked in a nursing home, especially if the nursing home is understaffed. This is not the case for home care since the caregiver is solely focused on one task and that is to care for the senior.

  • Comfortable Surroundings = Happier Seniors

    Indeed, there’s no place like home. The wonderful memories created, and the familiarities of the area are just some of the reasons why seniors prefer to remain at home. This is also helpful for seniors suffering from dementia. The familiarity of the place can help avoid upsetting or confusing them. Also, having them at home makes them feel loved and important as opposed to putting them in a nursing home which makes them feel otherwise.

  • Customizable Services

    Since different seniors have different needs, home aides can modify their services to provide the best care for them. This is a huge advantage compared to nursing homes which apply a “one size fits all” approach. The flexibility of the services gives you the assurance that every specific need of your aging parents are met.

With so many benefits other than those listed above, it is not surprising that more and more people are choosing in-home care over nursing home, which leads to more homecare centers being established. Helping Hands Hale, a Home Care Service Provider in Hawaii, is just one of the many in-home care companies that are tailored to meet the needs of your aging parents at home.

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.
