Home Care Resources
Home care is a cost effective alternative to extended hospital
stays or institutional care. Being at home helps clients feel
better about themselves and gives them a sense of security
and well being, without imposing a burden on family and friends.
In addition, home care can cost a fraction as much as hospitalization
or a long-term care facility. Home health care enables clients
to recuperate in the comfort and privacy of their own home,
at a cost savings of 36 to 50 percent over hospitalization
or nursing home confinement. Staying at home means being near
family and friends - people who can offer loving care and
support. A trained home care provider can teach them the skills
needed to help with certain types of care.
