By comparison, the average resident at an assisted living community pays $3,600 per month. Nursing homes can cost up to $250 per day. In the past five years, the costs for assisted living and skilled nursing have risen by 3.5%.
Preventing Costly Accidents
In addition to being an affordable option, home care can actually prevent the accidents and injuries that lead to hospital stays and visits to the doctor. As caregivers help with activities of daily living, they can help prevent falling and promote a healthier living environment. Falls can lead to head injuries and broken bones, and having a steady hand helps many seniors be more sure on their feet.
Keeping track of prescriptions is also a challenge for many people using home care services. Medication reminders given by a caregiver can prevent our clients from forgetting to take their medication or overdosing, both of which can lead to more serious health concerns.
