Which is Best For My Loved One?
Choosing elderly care for your loved one can not be approached as a one-size-fits-all solution. Simply put, choosing the right care is dependent on what your elderly loved one’s needs. Needs to consider include:
Home care is a type of care that provides your elderly loved one with a nurse or caregiver in their home. This type of care is best for those loved ones who are more independent and wish to and are able to stay in their home. This type of care tends to be more customizable and provide services such as companionship, meal preparation, medication reminders, light housekeeping tasks, and personal care, as well as more intensive care like wound care, ventilator care, pain management, and more. Home care allows your loved one to receive the care they need without having to relocate.
Assisted living can be a great option when in-home care is insufficient, family isn’t as involved, and it sometimes can be more affordable, depending on if your loved one needs 24/7 care. Senior living can provide personal care while allowing your loved one to still enjoy some independence. Also, it can allow your senior to enjoy ample social opportunities. Though it may still be saddening for seniors to leave their homes, they can enjoy amenities that they wouldn’t have access to at home as well as a nurse call service, daily meals and snacks, laundry, and housekeeping services.
If this is your first time looking into elderly care for your loved one, you may be surprised to find there are a lot of options in Honolulu. There is in-home care, assisted living, nursing homes, and more. The options available may be overwhelming; the best place to start when deciding on care for your loved one is to consider their needs as well as other important aspects.
There is not a one-size-fits-all solution to care for your loved one. Each senior is different and requires a different level of care. Also, there are other aspects to consider such as your budget, your family’s involvement in care, and if your loved one stays in their home, who will take care of the home. Some families choose to keep their loved one in their own home as they would suffer from homesickness. Others choose to have them relocated to assisted living for more social interaction.
