Why Home Care is Necessary 905-436-2328

Lisa Ann Burke, Yahoo! Contributor Network

The primary goal of home health services is to provide care to those individuals recovering for illness or physical disability who prefer to recover within their own homes rather than be placed within an institutional setting. Home health care services provide many benefits to both patients and their loved ones.

Relieves Primary Caretakers

The provision of home health care services can provide relief to overburdened family members and friends who often suffer emotional burn-out from having to provide round-the-clock care. Home health aides provide assistance with meal preparation, grooming, bathing, food shopping, as well as provide daily companionship.

Promotes Recovery and Healing

Being cared for in the home reduces the risk of infection that is a common occurrence within hospital or assisted living facilities.

Home Health Care Provides independence

Rather than being held to the routines of a nursing home, the provision of home health care permits the person in recovery to set and manage their own day-to-day schedule, albeit with some services provided at pre-arranged times, such nursing visits or physical therapy.

Improved Quality of Care

Because of the one-on-one nature of patient interaction, along with personalized care, overall patient satisfaction is much greater in a home health situation than is the case within hospital or nursing home settings. A correlate of this improved worker-patient relationship is the well documented result of increased life expectancy.

Provides Care a Less Cost

As compared with lengthy hospital stays or residency in nursing homes, the cost of in-home care is significantly less. In a 2006 study by Genworth Financial it was found that the average cost of a private room within a nursing facility was $72,912, not counting the cost of ancillary services. This compares to an approximate average annual salary of one home health aide at $52,000.
