What are the Benefits of Home Care?

Updated: Nov 25, 2021




Everyone needs care at some point in their lives. Whether it's for a short time, like after an operation, or long term due to disability or ageing parents. Does the question then become where that care should take place? Home healthcare can be the best option for many people. Here are just 6 of the benefits of home care services:


1) It is more cost-effective than nursing homes. We all know that the cost of care has gone up in the recent past. Care homes are expensive. The average cost in the UK is approx £700 per week and nursing care is £800 plus. Per week.

With home care, each visit can be tailored to your needs and only what you need will be provided.

- More cost-effective than nursing homes

- Visits can be tailored to your needs


2) There are fewer infections: Due to a small turnover of people coming in to assist, the infection rate is much lower than in care homes.


3) You're surrounded by your own things: We all like to comfort our homes. Receiving home care can be beneficial to the end-user given that they know their surroundings. This is also a great benefit if the end-user has dementia.


4) Your family and friends will feel more comfortable visiting you. They get the same homely feeling as you do.


- More comfortable for your family and friends

- Assistance as needed, not as much as needed!

- You can have privacy if need be or company when desired.

- All of the conveniences of home.


5) Continuity of care. Having the same people visiting you is a great benefit as they'd be able to pick up on any changes should the end-user need extra help or medical assistance.


6) Couple staying together. Having spent years together and learned to bounce off each other, couples tend to struggle if one of them gets moved into a care home. This tends to affect both of them in a different way. The one moved gets disoriented and the one at home is constantly worried about the other. With home care services, you know that they'll stay together and reassure each other.
