When it comes to where your parents live, it’s important to fit the right solution to lifestyle. Today we look at Access to Care: Residential Care vs Care at Home, we look at the difference in care to help you and your parents make the right decision.
Access to Care in a Residential Facility:
Residential care facilities are staffed by qualified clinical staff and visiting medical professionals and doctors. Around the clock care is provided but it’s important to note that they do not provide emergency care for acute conditions, this is mostly provided in hospital type settings. If your loved one requires high-dependency care a residential facility may be the best option.
Access to Care at Home:
The benefit of in-home care is that it can be tailored to suit the individual and their lifestyle. This means that a client can still do the things that give them the independence they need, but get a little help with the things that they cannot manage themselves. Preparing basic meals may be something they enjoy doing themselves, but they may need a little help when using a stove top.
A care package can be tailored to suit these types of requirements. Around the clock care at home can easily be part of the services provided by a taylor made in-home care package.
