How Home Care Can Enhance Quality of Life for Seniors

Over the next two decades, more than 10,000 baby boomers will retire each day. However, gone are the days when seniors would automatically move into an assisted living or nursing facility. Instead, a growing number of seniors today prefer to age in place. Home care Santa Clarita seniors rely on is more than a cost-effective solution to a facility, it also helps seniors maintain a high quality of life while remaining in the comfort of their own homes. 

  1. Improved Healing

At-home care allows seniors to receive personalized care in the privacy of their own homes. Home care has been found to reduce hospital readmission rates, and it’s been found to help seniors recover faster from surgery, injury, and illness.

  1. Retained Independence

Moving into a nursing or assisted living facility means leaving home, getting rid of possessions, moving into an unfamiliar setting with strangers, and losing control over day-to-day routines. With home care, seniors are able to retain their independence and control of day-to-day activities. Moreover, in-home care is delivered on a care schedule best for the client and caregivers only assist as needed, fostering a sense of dignity and respect in seniors.

  1. Companionship

Home care is about more than helping with personal care, meals, and chores, it also gives seniors access to companionship and conversation. A startling number of seniors experience feelings of loneliness, isolation, and depression, which can lead to serious physical health problems. Having a Santa Clarita caregiver regularly spend time in a senior’s home can be particularly important if family lives far away.

Other ways home care can enrich a senior’s quality of life include:

  • Transportation services to help seniors stay connected with friends and go to community events
  • Monitoring chronic medical conditions
  • Mobility assistance during exercise or everyday activities
  • Nutritious meal preparation
