Reduces Stress for Client and Loved Ones
Home Health Care services can be beneficial when a family member has serious medical needs and loved ones need to work, or enjoy some time away from care giving responsibilities. Home health care staff can help caregivers avoid missing family time, children’s activities, and declining career opportunities.
Is home health care right for me?
Home Health Care can be a wonderful service for those people who do not need continuous nursing care and who wish to be cared for in their own home. Your home is where family, friends, and familiar surroundings make you feel most comfortable – and you’ll be able to recover faster.
Protect Personal Freedom
As opposed to being in a nursing home or other long-term care facilities, you or your loved one can receive health care right in your own home. Being at home provides a greater sense of privacy and confidence. Being at home permits you to take control of your well being about personal choices like meals, schedules and other activities of daily living.
When a loved one is aging and has an acute or chronic illness like congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or diabetes, it is best that they receive suitable nutrition, medication, rest, and medical supervision. For many people, home health care workers can help loved ones maintain their level of wellness for a longer period of time.
Research shows that home health care services can improve clients’ ability to walk or move around, get in and out of bed, have less pain when moving around, improve bladder control, get better at bathing, are short of breath less often, need less urgent unplanned medical care in general. And with VNA Alliance’s Safe at Home clinical pathway, you're ensured better health.
