We all know the saying, “there is no place like home.”
There are a multitude of reasons why somebody may need healthcare at home. Sometimes our clients are having a planned surgery, others have suffered a fall or change in generalized strength, some need specific help with eating, talking or walking and many need help understanding what medications to take and why.
We at Helping Hands Healthcare understand that there are a lot of things that are confusing and difficult to understand in today’s healthcare market. We can help guide our clients and their families through the “maze” of benefits, payer sources, services and almost anything that pertains to the delivery of home care. Our management staff has over 100 years of experience in this business. Together they utilize their skills to make your home care experience the best possible.
What is Home Care?
According to the AARP, 82% of people said they would prefer to stay in their own homes as long as possible.
Here's another startling fact: according to a 2007 study commissioned by Clarity and the EAR Foundation, seniors feared loss of independence more than death.
Together with the rising demand for home care in the healthcare industry, these facts are powerful testaments to the overwhelming benefits of helping clients remain in their homes to heal and maintain their lifestyle for as long as possible.
Following are the benefits we've witnessed to our clients in our 30 years working in home healthcare:
- One-on-one care ensures client-centered attention
- More affordable
- Fosters independence because clients are in control of their own home
- Builds confidence
- Ensures comfort, which does wonders for the spirit
- Provides social interaction
- Partnership with family keeps clients connected with the ones they love
- Heal and recover in private
- Peace of mind for clients and their loved ones
Whether it's a beloved armchair, a favorite pillow or a bond with a pet, our clients rely on the restorative powers of familiar surroundings. A study by the U.S. General Accounting Office confirmed our observations when it found that people receiving home care tend to live longer and have a better quality of life.
