Choosing Home Health Care Over a Facility

When you have a loved one in need of care, whether temporarily following a hospital stay or permanently, it can be a very difficult time filled with many important decisions.  One of the decisions you will likely face is whether to place your loved one in a facility or to have them cared for at home.  At Champion Home Health Care of Palm Beach, we believe that home health care is the best choice.  Let us explain why.

 

The Comfort of Home Vs. Medical Facilities

EVERYONE feels more comfortable in their own home than they do in a hospital or care facility.  Hospitals and care facilities don’t smell like home, the sounds are different, and there are strangers everywhere.  For most of us, when we don’t feel good, we just want our own bed and the comforts that we find from being in our own home – familiar sights, smells, people, and even the food.

 

You may be reluctant to choose home health care because you don’t feel equipped to care for your loved one. Perhaps you work and can’t be there with them all the time.  Maybe you have physical limitations yourself that make it impossible for you to care for your loved one.  Whatever the reason, just know that you don’t have to do it by yourself!  This is still a completely viable option for your loved one.

 

Champion Home Health Care exists specifically for this reason.  We want to see people recover in the comforts of their own home. In fact, they may even recover more quickly being at home in an environment where they feel safe and comfortable.  We realize that not all clients will recover. Some may have chronic and eventually fatal illnesses.  We understand that and want to do everything we can to make you and your loved one as happy and comfortable as possible, whether they have days or years left to live.

 

Customized Home Health Care Services

Our highly trained staff is matched to our clients on an individual basis based on the client’s specific needs.  If your loved one needs medical attention that requires a trained nurse, then that is who will be assigned to them.  Our employees are also trained in memory loss and dementia, so you don’t have to worry about explaining the situation adequately and wondering if the care is sufficient.  Our caregivers are trained and ready to work with your memory-impaired senior loved one.  In fact, we believe that keeping those with memory issues in their home is ideal for as long as possible.  The more familiar the surroundings, the less likely they are to become even more confused and frightened.

 

Home Care is Often More Affordable Than A Facility

Do not be overly worried by the cost.  The cost of assisted living facilities can be outrageous, but home health care is often covered under your loved one’s medical insurance or Medicare.  We will work out all the details with you.  Don’t let the fear of the unknown or an assumption that we can’t help prevent you from calling our home health care agencies in Palm Beach County.  We think our senior helpers in Boca Raton CAN help, and we want to help!

 

If your elderly loved one lives in the South Florida areas of West Palm Beach, North Palm Beach, Boca Raton, or Fort Lauderdale, then please call us today at Champion Home Health Care of South Florida.  We have offices nearby and trained staff of caregivers and nurses ready to help your loved one stay at home where they want to be!
