4 Lesser-Known Advantages Of Home Care

4 Lesser-Known Advantages Of Home Care

Home care is available to seniors and people living with disabilities in the Norfolk area of Virginia. Here are four lesser-known advantages of this care.

1. Home Care Is Care With Which More Seniors Are Comfortable.

It can be difficult for some seniors to accept that they need care, or even that care could help them. It’s not hard to understand why. After all, if you have 60-odd years of self-reliance under your belt, it can feel awkward to let others take care of you. Some seniors resist care until they absolutely need it, and this can make their lives unnecessarily challenging and uncomfortable.

Often, the biggest hurdle for a senior to accept care is that they think that they’ll have to move into a senior care facility. Many seniors love their Norfolk homes and don’t want to move out. Other seniors simply don’t like how communal the style of living is inside senior care facilities. Thankfully, Always Best Care of Norfolk offers home care. We can deliver seniors all the care they need right in their own Norfolk-area homes.

2. Home Care Is Not The More Expensive Option. It’s Cheaper.

There are myriad excellent senior care communities all over the Commonwealth of Virginia, including several great assisted living communities right here in Norfolk. Always Best Care of Norfolk offers free assisted living placement consultations to help seniors and their families find the assisted living community that works best for them.

While many seniors enjoy living in these communities, cost is often a concern. Assisted living requires rent and fees. With home care, you only pay for the services you receive. Despite typically being the more convenient option, home care is also usually the more affordable option.

3. Home Care Can Include Covid-19 Elderly Care.

Covid-19 affects seniors worse than it does most younger people. Even fully vaccinated seniors sometimes require hospitalization. Always Best Care of Norfolk offers post-hospitalization Covid-19 care to help seniors recover from the lingering symptoms of Covid-19. We can also arrange Covid-19 vaccines for the elderly.

4. Home Care Can Help Family Caregivers.

Always Best Care of Norfolk offers respite care to families who provide care for their loved ones themselves. If you care for a parent, relative, or friend, there will be times when you can’t provide that care. If you’re going on vacation, are busy with work, or you’re feeling ill yourself, we can provide a respite and care for your loved one until you’re ready to once again.
