In home care provides a multitude of different benefits to retirees. A caregiver can provide meals, do laundry, clean up around the house, assist with bathing and grooming, and even offer their friendship. In this respect, in home care can do a lot toward helping a senior citizen out and can provide a huge stress relieving function, too. When chores and daily tasks are all accounted for, it lets the person receiving care focus on the things that truly matter to them, without having them get bogged down and worked up over just trying to get through the day.
In home care is a great way for seniors to age in place since they are able to stay in their homes for much longer than if they simply lived by themselves and were responsible for all of their usual duties. In home care allows them to stay in their house and enjoy the comforts of familiarity for much longer and can help them to avoid a stay in a nursing home, hospital, or even a hospice home. In home care truly is versatile and can provide for seniors in a way that they couldn’t if they were just on their own.
However, sometimes in home care just isn’t enough. Transitioning to a different type of care can work against the concept of aging in place, but this doesn’t have to be a traumatizing event if you plan accordingly. With Paradise, aging in place can occur quite easily—even if the person in care needs to switch from in home care to an assisted living facility. This is because Paradise runs to assisted living facilities, also in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Paradise Gardens Care Homes provide assisted living in two different homes and this can be extremely beneficial to senior citizens in need of a bit more supervision or even those who just desire to have more of a social life.
Assisted living is great in both of these respects. Within the Paradise Gardens Care Homes, your elderly loved one will receive around the clock attention if they need it, all while having their daily chores completely accounted for. Assisted living can also be pretty hands-off, if desired, so your loved one will have the freedom and independence that they crave all while having the safety net of a high quality team of trained caregivers to fall back upon if they need to.
Assisted living also offers a sense of community that cannot be replicated within in home care. For instance, in home care is usually just the person receiving care and their caregiver. This is a great way to provide help, but it lacks a larger social atmosphere. In assisted living, your loved one is surrounded by other people their own age and can have the social life that they may have been craving.
The best part about this is that they can retain the same caregiver. So while the transition might not be technically aging in place, the transition will be as smooth as possible. This is a great way for your elderly loved one to live the stress free life that they deserve.
