Senior Home Care vs Assisted Living

It can be around this time of year that families gather and discuss senior home care options for their loved ones. Only about 3.3% of Americans have long-term care insurance which helps pay for assistance needed as you grow older for either in-home care or a nursing home. There are advantages to choosing in-home care over a nursing home. 


Benefits of Home Care 

Aging in place, versus living in a nursing home is preferable for most people. This option is more feasible now than ever with in-home care such as All Saints Home Care. 


One benefit of in-home care is that your loved one will still have the freedom they are accustomed to, with just some additional assistance. Seniors with in-home care can still do the activities they enjoy such as visiting with friends and family, hobbies, and daily activities. They have the freedom to keep their own schedule as well.  


Additionally, seniors can keep their pets, who are a great source of companionship and purpose. Pets also provide stress relief and reduce anxiety and depression. These reasons are why All Saints has implemented our Very Important Pet (VIP) initiative to recognize the importance of our clients’ pets. 


Aging in place is comforting for many seniors. A change in location from the familiar to a facility can take a toll on mental and emotional health. Staying in their home can help seniors stay happier and feel less isolated. 


In-home care can be personalized to meet the individual needs of the client. Some clients may need assistance with grooming and personal care. Some may need medication reminders and meals. Some may need help with housekeeping, or errands. And others may need assistance with all the above. All Saints Home Care works with our clients’ medical teams and families to create the best care plan for that individual. 


Finally, in-home care can be a more cost-effective solution for long-term care than assisted living. In-home care can be a fraction of the cost of assisted living. Often Medicare and Medicaid can also be used to pay for in-home care.
