Ageing and Recovering: How Home Care Benefits You

Senior CareOne of the most significant roles of home care providers is to ensure their patients — the elderly ones, disabled patients and those who are ill — receive the highest quality, compassionate and personal care possible. Home care aims to meet all the needs of the patients through personalised services at the comfort of the patient’s home.

This helps reduce readmissions to the hospital. Singapore’s Ministry of Health reveals that in 2013, the readmission rates for patients over 65 ranged  from 18.5% to 21.1%. Studies show patients recovering from injury, illness or any surgical procedure faster and more positively when recuperating at their home rather than in a hospital or a medical facility. Below are some of the many benefits of receiving home care services:

  • Peace of Mind

When you decide to have home care services, you are ensuring your peace of mind. It is not easy for you to provide your loved one’s needs, but by hiring a home care provider, you are giving them the level of care they need and deserve.

  • Independence and Comfort

You feel more independent, confident and comfortable when you are at home. Recovering from an illness will likely be more effective if done in the home setting. The healing process is faster and easier. With the variety of home care services, your family member can live an independent life while having someone to help, if needed.

  • Personalised Care

Every patient has their unique needs and it is the responsibility of the caregiver to provide these. This guarantees that your loved one will receive one-on-one care to achieve ultimate relief and comfort.

Basically, home care services provide the needed assistance to families. This allows you to live a normal life and get back to your daily routine while enjoying your own time.
