The benefits of home care services vs care homes
The Better at Home report commissioned by the Live-in Care Hub has revealed significant benefits for the health and safety of people receiving care at home compared to those living in care homes. Concerns over the high number of Covid-related deaths in care homes have caused many people to consider alternative care options for their loved ones. The report aims to make more people aware that home care services for elderly and vulnerable people are the best option for better safety, happiness and health.
You are the centre of your home care plan – even the best care homes are only able to provide up to 3 hours one to one care a day. Live-in care means you are supported around the clock and flexible hourly care provides support and companionship as little or as often are you need it. Whether you'd like a walk in the sunshine, a game of cards or some time spent with friends, you carer is there to help you do these things.
Better Health and Mobility
With 24/7 live-in care, you are likely to be healthier than if you go to a care home or a nursing home. Professor Dawn Skelton (Professor of Ageing and Health at Glasgow Caledonian University) says "the data certainly suggests that live-in care is associated with fewer falls than seen in residential care, perhaps because of the opportunities to be more active and engaged in self care and the ethos of moving more, and sitting less."
Happiness and Independence
Surrounded by the people, things and places you love. Care at home means you don’t have to separate from everything that is familiar to you. As much as you are able, you can continue to sleep in your own bed, enjoy the food you like served on your own plates, keep your pets, enjoy your garden and entertain family and friends. With the help of your carer you can continue to live life to the full.
A staggering 97 percent of people do not want to go into a care home if they become ill or less able to cope.
