For those who are looking into care for a loved one, you may be wondering whether a facility would be the right option. The main difference between the two is that with home care, the individual is able to remain at home, in comfort of familiar surroundings, and receive direct personal care. That means that when a professional from Rx Family Home Care comes to visit at their home, the individual will receive undivided attention during that time. That doesn’t happen within facility care; these caregivers are usually working to care for many patients at the same time.
One of the most important aspects of life to the client is retaining as much independence as possible for as long as possible. Home care is the perfect answer to this need. It allows the person to keep as much control over their existence as they like. They also don’t have to bend to the schedules imposed by facilities over such things as meal times and choices. It helps them feel that their life is carrying on as usual. In fact the federal government and health agencies now agree that home care is the best level of care for seniors requiring some assistance.
It’s no secret that as we age, our stamina and strength begin to decline. We may be able to do the things we used to, but the energy runs out before the task is completed! But because these things need to be done… we push ourselves to complete them. Our bodies then let us know we have overextended our realistic ability and may remind us of it for days! Projects like cupboard cleaning, spring and fall cleaning, window washing and other major tasks continue to mount.
Perhaps you are capable, but just don’t want to tackle it. Rx Family Home Care has strong, agile, energetic ladies who excel at organizational and cleaning tasks. They will work alongside you, or complete the project on their own. You’ll be delighted with the outcome and enjoy the process!
