Elder Care

Home Care is the Preferred Choice

If you’re researching elder care, you’re probably aware of the many senior housing options, such as a nursing home, assisted living community, adult day care, retirement community, or continuing care retirement community.

These elder care options all have some benefits, however, at home care is the preferred choice for seniors. In fact, remaining at home is not only the preferred choice of adults over the age of 45– according to studies conducted by the AARP, Clarity, and the EAR Foundation– it also is substantially more affordable than nursing homes and other assisted living facilities.

And it’s no secret that today’s seniors are living much longer, healthier lives than generations past. Assisted living is a great choice if your loved one needs help with the activities of daily living, such as:

  1. toileting, incontinence, and related issues
  2. Bathing, grooming, and dressing
  3. Needing help with errands and transportation
  4. Laundry
  5. Companionship
  6. Meal preparation
  7. Housekeeping
  8. Medication
  9. Walking

And if you are in the Chicago area, the caring professionals at Health Advocates Homecare are prepared to help your loved one, in the comfort of home.

“Recently my 92 year old mother required several hours of supervised care. As it was my brother and my desire to provide mom with a comfortable, safe and yet familiar environment we decided to look into home care services. It was our good fortune that we found Health Advocates Homecare. My mother is surrounded by very caring and compassionate individuals who understand the needs of the elderly and infirmed. My mother is also treated with respect, which is very important in this phase of my mother’s life where maintaining her dignity is so very important. Having the services of Health Advocates Homecare has given my brother and me peace of mind knowing that our mother is in such good hands.”
