When to Choose Assisted Living
Assisted living facilities have many amenities that make them attractive to older people who may have difficulty getting around or caring for all their own needs. They often include entertainment, transportation, assistance with daily tasks, meals, and other helpful care.
The downside is that due to the pandemic, there are strict health precautions in place, which may leave your loved one isolated and lonely. This can lead to anxiety or depression. An alternative is to get care at home instead of moving them to a facility.
Improving Quality of Life and Health Benefits
Staying at home can improve quality of life and have added benefits like more one-on-one interactions and tailored safeguards. Seniors with cognitive decline are more likely to suffer fewer severe symptoms if they live in a familiar environment.
A few benefits of at-home companionship care include the following.
- They get to stay near loved ones
- It will be easier to spot physical or mental declines so they can be treated faster
- The home environment can be altered for safety
