Home Care for Elderly: Discover the A Care Connection Difference
Today, statistics show that the majority of older adults in the United States plan to stay at home for as long as possible, despite changes in health, mobility, or cognition. Thankfully, trained and specialized caregivers have the ability to facilitate all sorts of customized care plans— all in a comfortable and familiar environment. But it’s not just about comfort.

Benefits of In Home Care For Elderly Loved Ones & Family Members:
Comfort & Independence
Older adults who remain in their homes enjoy much more freedom and independence than those who live in assisted living facilities or nursing homes. When your aging loved one can stay in their own home but still receive critical medical, it’s not only more convenient for all involved, but also drastically improves their level of comfort. They can sleep in their own bed, use their own bathroom, and continue their daily routines. Remaining in familiar surroundings can be especially beneficial for those suffering from progressive conditions that affect the memory such as Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
Safety & Peace of Mind
Home care enables your family to be a larger part of your loved ones care plan while ensuring the utmost safety while at home. Fall risks & safety assessments are done and therapists may recommend strength training and assistive devices. An aging-in-place specialist can also provide helpful advice regarding the remodeling of a living space to make it accessible and safe for an elderly person choosing to stay at home for the long term.
Reduced Loneliness & Depression
Seniors who live alone often experience social isolation and feelings of loneliness which can lead to a decline in health. A caregiver provides your loved one with a familiar face, friendly conversation, and a meaningful human connection, all of which can have a big impact on overall health and well-being. Plus, keeping the same social network as they age allows seniors to continue to stay connected to their friends and family— which has a direct impact on their happiness and overall wellbeing.
Reduced Stress & Anxiety
Moving from an apartment or private home to a senior living facility or skilled nursing facility may address immediate safety and health concerns, but the disruptive trade-offs can be steep for older individuals who are still capable of living mostly independently. In most cases, these older adults have lived in the same location for decades. Having to suddenly live in someone else’s space involves living by another’s rules, including conforming to set meal times, structured activity schedules, and numerous other new regulations that can cause high levels of stress and anxiety.
Personalized One-on-One Care
The personal nature of home care allows your loved one to be the primary focus of the caregiver. Their job is to provide a level of attention and care that ensures your loved one is safe and comfortable. Because an in-home caregiver is usually tending to a single client, their needs are met much faster and more attentively than in a residential care facility.
Research shows that patients recover from surgery and illness faster and more successfully in the comfort of their own home. They also have a decreased risk of developing infections from exposure to common germs in a medical facility.
Constant Care (Depending on Need)
The need for close monitoring used to be a common reason patients needed long hospital stays. Recent advances in medical technology combined with in home care for older adults allows for long term and constant care provided safely and comfortably in the client’s own home. This drastically reduces the need for most hospital visits and hospital re-admissions.
