4 Key Advantages of In-Home Caregivers

4 Key Advantages of In-Home Caregivers

Have you ever purchased a seemingly insignificant product and found that it had a remarkable effect on your enjoyment of something? Maybe it was the first time that you used power windows in a vehicle and didn’t have to roll them down manually. Or maybe it was when you purchased a smart TV or a device that allowed you to stream content on your television. Or, if you are of a certain vintage, perhaps you remember the first time you used a microwave as opposed to a proper oven.

All of these are examples of products and innovations that may not have seemed important at the time, but after you got used to using them, you appreciated how much more convenient they made your life. In-home caregivers are very much the healthcare equivalent of that. After availing yourself of the services of in-home caregivers, you will wonder how you ever did without them before. Here are four key advantages of in-home caregivers.

Convenience

The first advantage is the most obvious: convenience. Why should seniors have to go out to see a doctor or nurse for a service that an in-home caregiver could provide right in the comfort of their own homes? Well, they shouldn’t. It’s silly. And when you consider the vast array of services that in-home caregivers can provide, it’s hard to imagine not wanting to take advantage of them.

You get to stay in your own home

Far too often, when seniors become unable to live their lives safely totally on their own, their families start thinking about assisted living communities and nursing homes. Many senior care facilities are great and provide just what their residents need. But many seniors don’t want to leave their homes. And why should they? They’ve lived in their homes for years, perhaps even decades. They have memories and a sentimental attachment to these homes and moving to a senior care facility can signify a depressing life change for them. With in-home caregivers, seniors can get the care they need without dealing with all this extra baggage.

Cost

We often are willing to pay a little extra for convenience. We’ll pay a delivery fee for food that we could get ourselves but would rather not. However, with in-home caregivers, the opposite is true. Not only are in-home caregivers more convenient than moving to a senior care facility, they are also less expensive. By hiring in-home caregivers, you need only pay for them, not also for rent and upkeep as you would in a senior care facility. It’s a win-win.

It opens the door for more care

In-home caregivers are great even for seniors who don’t need a great deal of care and assistance. For some seniors, physical health isn’t as much a concern as is their emotional and mental health. For these seniors, companion care can see to their needs. Some seniors can take care of themselves just fine, but the chores and errands of looking after their homes can be a bit too much. For these seniors, homemaking services are ideal. In either case, by hiring in-home caregivers to provide one service, you have already opened the door for more involved care if and when that becomes necessary.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
