Home Care Services vs Institutional Care
The caregiving journey can be a challenge. It can be physically and mentally exhausting. Home nursing services provides personalized and compassionate treatment. It can help you when you have a loved one who is recovering from surgery, had a hospital stay or coping with chronic conditions such as dementia or stroke. Here at iKare, we believe the following reasons are why home nursing care can be better for our loved ones.
PERSONALISED CARE PLAN IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME
The healing process and state of mind of loved ones depends on the environment. The home has a favourable impact. When a loved one receives care in the comfort of their own home, surrounded by familiar settings, it makes a difference to both their physical and mental well-being. Even with the best accommodation and intentions, care facilities can be cold and isolating without the comfort and familiarity of home. There is comfort in sleeping in your own bed and receiving quality personalised care in your own home.
HELP TO PROMOTE FASTER HEALING AND RECOVERY
Reducing the amount of time in a hospital or nursing home can lower the risk and exposure to superbugs and infections. By staying out of the hospital and nursing home, your loved one can receive care in a safe environment to assist in their healing.
MAINTAIN INDEPENDENCE AND INTEGRITY
Your loved one values their independence and integrity. Home nursing services lets them maintain their routine and lifestyle in a familiar environment. By being able to perform familiar tasks and interact in familiar surroundings, they grow in self-confidence. They will quickly accept the care that they need by not letting it get in the way of their lives.
FAMILY AND FRIENDS CAN VISIT
A hospital or nursing home is not an ideal place to visit with specific timings and many restrictions. With your loved one at home, family and friends can drop by anytime and provide companionship. This extra support and social interaction helps keep them engaged, healthy and happy.
PREVENT HOSPITALISATION OR NURSING HOME STAY
Studies show that the majority of elderly desire to spend their remaining days at home if they can receive sufficient attention and care. Home nursing services will ensure they can do this while keeping them safe and comfortable. This will allow your loved ones to stay home until end-of-life and avoid any out of home stay.
REDUCES HOSPITAL ADMISSIONS
With home caregiving support, your loved one can reduce risk of falls and medical events like infections or flare of chronic diseases. Thereby reducing hospital visits and admissions. Home caregiving support also reduce loneliness for those home alone.
