Benefits of Live-In Home Care vs Residential care

If you’ve reached the decision that you or a close loved one needs support, you may need to decide whether live-in home care or residential care would be most suitable. Here at Promedica24, we are proud to offer the former, and below, we have pointed out some of the key benefits for choosing our team to provide this.

Familiar Surroundings

Dealing with a medical set-back is hard enough, so being able to remain in familiar surroundings will do wonders for the mental health of those remaining at home. Certain conditions like Alzheimer’s can cause significant issues for the brain, so staying home can be a really simple way to stabilize the mind. You can also modify personal spaces far more freely compared to residential care homes, allowing you to make necessary alterations to the layout for greater safety and productivity each day.

Cost-Effective

Moving is very costly, and takes lots of time to get everything in order, whether you’re buying or selling. These expenses are often on-going for quite a while, and with the costs associated with residential care also soon coming into play, this could become a rather expensive ordeal to go through. In most cases, live in carer cost will also be far more effective, given how this can be called on as little or often as necessary.

Proactive Support

The support you receive will be far more proactive, given how this will be the sole concern for live in care givers. This means assistance will be tailored to your needs alone, and should serious issues arise, they can be dealt with right away, therefore preventing further problems from escalating out of control.

Live-In Home Care Vs Residential Care

There are in fact many more reasons to choose live-in home care over residential care. Below is a direct comparison between the two, showing you the number of key areas you will greatly benefit from choosing live in care provided by Promedica24.
