One of the main reasons that home care is so popular, is because of the flexibility and the variety of care available. There are services that are available with home care, such as customer-focused, one to one care which may not necessarily be available in a much busier, care home environment. In a care home environment, the carers are likely to be caring for numerous customers. As a result. The care that you receive may not be quite so focused on your specific needs.
Staying in your own home also means that you can continue with your preferred lifestyle. The care package that is provided will be tailored to your specific requirements, and so you will be able to continue watching your favourite television programmes, and you will be able to eat your favourite meals as usual.
If you live alone, your carer can become your companion. Your carer will be fully trained to be able to keep you company at all times of the day, be your opponent during a game of chess, and watch your favourite television shows with you.
