5 REASONS MORE SENIORS AND FAMILY CAREGIVERS ARE CHOOSING HOME CARE IN NEW JERSEY, (NJ)
For family members struggling to decide the best course of action for their senior loved one here are 5 reasons to consider senior care in New Jersey, (N)J:
1. One-on-one care
Quality, one-on-one care from certified home care provider is the backbone of aging in place. Home care providers know from experience that no two seniors are alike, and they tailor their caregiving to suit the needs of every individual. Whether it’s something as easy as knowing how to prepare a favorite dish at the end of a long day or patiently comforting sundowning seniors with dementia, one-on-one care always puts seniors’ needs and comfort first.
2. Fewer visits to the doctor
Seniors who receive in-home care in New Jersey require fewer in-office doctor visits over the course of a year as compared to seniors who do not receive in-home care. This holds true for patients with conditions that are “worse than [those of] others of the same age,” including those with arthritis and heart disease. Seniors with Dementia who received in-home care visited the doctor an average of 10.2 times per year, compared to 19.2 annual visits for those without.
Home health care professionals are effective in preventing unplanned hospital admissions with targeted interventions for seniors who choose to age in place.
3. Faster recovery
Adults with acute conditions who were treated with hospital-at-home care had a:
🔸Shorter recovery time,
🔸Fewer complications, and
🔸Ended up with a lighter medical bill.
Hospital-at-home care in New Jersey was also associated with greater satisfaction for both seniors and their family caregivers.
4. Too Sick for Work
Sometimes you’re too sick for work but that doesn’t mean you require hospital care. In situations where a little extra help is necessary, temporary in-home caregivers can provide relief and assistance in a comforting place without being deserted in a hospital setting.
