Weighing Options – Providing Care at Home or Move to a Nursing Home

Families are often faced with an important dilemma; should the person whose health is failing be cared for at home by professionals or should they move to a full-time nursing home?

There are many advantages for a person to stay at home. They will be close to an environment that they are happy to live in, possibly with members of their own family. They will continue to be part of their local community and where they are able to get out and about, even with assistance, they will still feel that they are participating within their own neighbourhood.

Employing Professional Private Home Care Services

By using private homecare services from a professional organisation, these individuals, that require varying levels of care, will still be able to eat when they choose and turn the television on and watch any program they desire, which may not be as easy living within the confines of a nursing home because there will be rules and regulations which will govern certain activities within the business.

Because the individual will continue to sleep in their own bedroom and use their own bathroom facilities, they will not be as disorientated as they would be by moving to a different location.

Removing the Stress of Family Care Provision

They may feel a closer bond to their family because some of the stress of providing homecare by family members will be removed by employing private homecare services.

Where a person is beginning to suffer from dementia, when they continue to live in their own home and use private homecare services they will recognise their own fixtures and fittings and their garden will remain familiar.
