Why is senior in home care better than going to a skilled nursing facility?
The biggest advantage of home health care is that seniors get to stay in their home that they know and love. They know the neighborhood and their neighbors, which tends to make people feel more comfortable and happier. When people are comfortable and happy, stress is less. When the body is not stressed, diseases tend to progress at a much slower rate, which in turn leads to a better quality of life. And, have you ever walked through a nursing home? I have! I must say if I had a choice, home or nursing home, I would choose my own home a hundred times over. Nursing homes smell, there are depressing for the patients and visitors, and often the staff have up to 10 patients they are caring for, which makes it difficult to provide high quality care.
