How do I choose between home care and assisted living/retirement homes?
Home care services help seniors in various activities of daily living such as bathing, eating, getting dressed, taking medications, preparing meals, housekeeping, mobility, and other household chores. Home care is ideal for those who wish to stay close to family and friends and can afford day to day in-home care.
Alternatively, assisted living/ retirement homes to provide seniors with comfortable apartments, dining options, and plenty of opportunities to socialize with peers. Assisted living also comes with optional nursing care facilities, a memory care unit, and other amenities to provide seniors with a safe, secure, and fulfilling retirement life. After a thorough analysis of your affordability, medical needs, and emotional goals, choose a senior care option that feels most comfortable and convenient to you.
Top reasons to consider assisted living
If the level of care you require increases, but you are unable to find a caregiver at home to help you meet your medical, social, emotional, and physical needs daily, you must consider moving to an assisted living. Also, if you are unable to cook your daily meals, unable to maintain your home, take care of your laundry, or pay your utility bills, joining an assisted living may the best option for you.
Also, if you are unable to maintain finances, if you feel lonely and isolated, or if you have memory-related problems, you may be more comfortable and happy at an assisted living. Besides, if you suffer from mood disorders and if you feel that your safety is at risk, be sure to start your research for assisted living communities near you.
