Introducing home care to your loved one’s life can be challenging. It can be incredibly difficult for a person to adjust to the fact that they may need a helping hand with day-to-day activities – which is why it is really important to make sure you find the right solution. Take a look at how home care can improve quality of life for the elderly:
At Anglia Care, we like to provide a personal touch to our services. Where possible, we keep the same carers assigned to particular people so not to disrupt their routine. We also know each of our customers’ quirks and circumstances – their care is our first priority.
Being at home means your loved one will still have their independence. Although they might need a little help from carers, they will still be able to do all the activities they like to do. A carer will be able to make this as easy as possible.
One of the main benefits of home care is that your loved one will be able to stay in the place they’re most comfortable – their own home. It can be daunting for anyone to be removed from their place of comfort and being in familiar surroundings will help them immensely – especially if they are suffering from illnesses that affect them mentally.
As mentioned in our previous blog on domiciliary care, home care can work out more cost-effective than residential care. This is because the value of property is excluded when calculating the funding your loved one is entitled to when looking into home care.
Having a carer can be a great form of companionship for your loved one. If they are on their own, it is hugely beneficial for them to see a friendly face every day to have a chat with them or play a board game.
