There is growing public demand for health care services that are available to the public in their own homes. The reasons have to do with tradition, with technology, and with cost effectiveness.

Home care is the oldest form of healthcare – and it is also the “newest.” Modern technology has developed to the point where many services that are available in a healthcare setting can be provided at home. There is significant evidence that it is less costly than other forms of care, and that it is the most satisfying form of health care available to the American public. It is an idea whose time has come.

 So…WHY HOME CARE? 

  • It is delivered at home. There are such positive feelings that all of us associate with being home. When we are not feeling well, most of us ask to go home. When we are feeling well, we enjoy the sanctity of our residences and the joy of being with our loved ones.
  • Home care keeps families together. There is no more important social value. It is particularly important in times of illness.
  • Home care serves to keep the elderly independent. None of us want to be totally dependent and helpless. With some assistance, seniors can continue to function as viable members of society.
  • Home care prevents or postpones institutionalization. Few people choose to be placed in a nursing home, unless it’s the only place where they can obtain the 24-hour care that they need.
  • Home care promotes healing. There is abundant evidence that people heal more quickly at home.
  • Home care allows a maximum amount of freedom for the individual. Hospitals and nursing homes offer more regimented, regulated environments. Home care offers a reassuring, individualized setting.
  • Home care is personalized care. Home care is tailored to the needs of each individual. It is delivered on a one-to-one basis.
  • Home care involves the individual and the family in the care that is delivered. The client and their family are taught to participate in their health care. They are taught how to get well, and how to stay that way.
  • Home care reduces stress. Unlike most forms of health care which can increase anxiety and stress, home care frequently has the opposite effect.
  • There is very high consumer satisfaction associated with care delivered in the home.
  • Home care is given by special people. Our employees see their work not as a job but as a calling. Our care assistants are highly trained and dedicated.
  • Home care extends life and improves its quality. A study by the U.S. General Accounting Office has established that people receiving home care tend to live longer and have a better quality of life. Home care helps not only add years to life, but “life to years.”
  • Home care is the preferred form of care, even for individuals who are terminally ill. There is a growing public acceptance and demand for hospice care, which is care for individuals who are terminally ill.
