The Advantages of Home Health Care

The Advantages of Home Health Care

If you have a parent or loved one who has reached their senior years –or if you yourself are of that age– there will likely come a time when you must make a difficult decision. Father time is not particularly kind to any of us. Even if you eat healthy and exercise every day, if you live long enough, the daily chores of life will become difficult and you will experience health problems. That’s just the cold hard truth. But thankfully, we now live in a society today where we have a plethora of options to choose from with regards to how we get the help we or our elderly loved ones need. But not all of these options are equal. Yes, a nursing home or elder care facility might be the right choice for some, but for the majority –perhaps even the vast majority– of seniors who need a little (or even a lot) of help, home health care is the superior option. To learn about some of the advantages of home health care, please continue reading.

It starts at home

The first advantage of home health care is the most obvious: you don’t have to leave home. Moving house is an awful ordeal for even healthy 20-somethings, so it can be a real hardship for the elderly. And apart from the physical and practical hardships, there is also the emotional element. Having to leave their home of years, or even decades, can be very difficult for many seniors. And moving to an elder care facility often signals to many seniors that they have entered their final stage in life and can trigger depression. It just makes all the sense in the world for seniors to stay in their own homes, if possible. And it is possible. Executive Care offers everything from help with household chores, to medical care, to even live-in care.

Companionship

One of the selling points for some elder care facilities is that they can help to foster a sense of community and help seniors build relationships. This is important because seniors are perhaps the most at-risk demographic for isolation. But it doesn’t always work out this way in nursing homes and other facilities. The move to such centers can often trigger depression or malaise in people. Thankfully, home health care can be very good at combating the isolation and loneliness that sometimes accompanies aging. Not only will the caregivers of Executive Care provide all the medical help required by seniors, but they can also provide some much needed friendship and companionship. Our caregivers are friendly, empathetic, and courteous, in addition to being skilled, knowledgeable, and professional. The end result is that our caregivers inevitably forge a bond with the seniors with whom they work. This bond is incredibly important to the success of a home health care plan and can be just crucial to the health and well-being of the elderly as medicine, diet, and exercise are.

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.

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.
