  3. 3. As individuals age, they often need a bit more help with their day-to-day activities. The question then becomes whether or not that individual should continue to live at home or move into an assisted living residence. Home care is a great option for the elderly and has many benefits. www.HomeCaregiverStore.com
  4. 4. 1. Seniors who live at home are able to maintain a level of freedom that would not be possible at an assisted living residence. For many, this freedom is synonymous with maintaining dignity, which is something many individuals fear losing as they age. Similarly, those who receive homecare can come and go as they please—for whatever reason.They can also choose their own meal times www.HomeCaregiverStore.com
  5. 5. 2. Home care allows the elderly to stay physically close to the things they love. Their prized possessions do not have to be condensed and stored as they move into a single room. Being able to keep these items readily available is important because they often have sentimental value and are tied to countless memories. Similarly, seniors are able to keep any pets they may have if they live at home. Studies have shown that people with pets tend to be less stressed, which can lead to a longer lifespan. www.HomeCaregiverStore.com
  6. 6. 3. Visiting hours are not restricted at home, so friends and family can visit on a time schedule that works for them. This lack of restriction often leads to more frequent visits, which helps seniors stay connected to their families. www.HomeCaregiverStore.com
  7. 7. 4. Homecare can help the elderly maintain better health. In places where many people live together, such as assisted living facilities, illness spreads very quickly and if one person gets sick, everyone tends to get sick. At home, sick guests can be asked to postpone their visit until they are well again. www.HomeCaregiverStore.com
  8. 8. 5. With home care, the elderly do not have to deal with the emotional stress of adding multiple new elements into their lives. They will not have to adapt to a new routine in a new place, surrounded by new people. www.HomeCaregiverStore.com
  9. 9. 6. Assisted living facilities can be very expensive and, in some cases, far away from other family members’ homes, especially in less populated areas. . In many cases, seniors have already completely paid off their mortgage, which can substantially reduce the costs of caregiving at home. The stressors related to the actual moving process are also eliminated. www.HomeCaregiverStore.com
  10. 10. 7. And last but not least, many seniors who live at home are simply happier. For most, the comforts of home truly are priceless. www.HomeCaregiverStore.com
  11. 11. It is now easier than ever for elderly individuals to live at home. There are many services that are both simple to use and affordable. Homecare products and services, such as security systems and pre-made meals, make living at home a viable option, and in many cases enable you to honor your elder family member’s wishes. www.HomeCaregiverStore.com
