Benefits of in-home care
With the unstable economy situation and rising cost of living in Malaysia, the majority of Malaysians are struggling to maintain certain aspects of their life. From the daily demands of work, home, family or from their own self expectations, anyone whether is it a working adult or a schooling child would find it stressful dealing with all these issues on a daily basis. In addition to that, as the years go by, the number of disabled, ill and aging people in the population increase due to numerous factors such as environment, health concerns and many more. This adds to the pressure of juggling daily activities while caring for said people in the family that may result in a physical or mental state of exhaustion if the family members try to bite more than they can chew.
Therefore, more families are opting for in-home care as an alternative option to self-care at home or nursing homes. Here are a few good reasons why in-home care is beneficial for you:
In-home care only requires you to hire a caregiver to take care of your elderly loved ones at home unlike nursing homes that require you to transport the elderly to their area for them to carry out their caregiving process. Therefore, in-house caregiving only requires payment for the caregiver’s services whereas nursing homes require payment for both services as well as facility maintenance.
- Home comfort
Many of the elderly population prefer to stay at home rather than visit hospitals or nursing homes probably because it does not make them feel as much of a burden to their loved ones. Besides that, the environment of their own home isn’t as alienating as a hospital or a nursing home and they are also able to meet their loved ones on a daily basis. There’s truth to that saying: “There’s no place like home.”
- Personal care and companionship
Having a caregiver that tends to the needs of your loved one at home helps to improve the well-being and recovery of your loved one. This is due to the fact that most of the elderly population would have the undivided attention of the caregiver therefore allowing them to pay attention to the finer details such as indirect habits or needs of the elderly. Moreover, in their own homes, the caregiver would not restrict the movement or activities carried out by the elderly but instead further assist them so they can carry out their daily routines with more ease and finesse.
- Family involvement
As mentioned above already, another one of the reasons why many of the elderly population prefer to stay at home is to be able to see their family members daily. This may help the elderly to recover from their illnesses as soon as possible as well as prevent any relationship strains. In addition to that, family members are also able to monitor the caregiving process as well as correct any mistakes the caregiver may make throughout learning about the elderly’s daily needs.
