Reasons Why Staying at Home with Rehab Home Health is Better
- New Surroundings can create problems- Moving into a retirement home or any new home environment can initiate decline in well being and overall health. Attempting to adapt to new surroundings can exacerbate dementia and frequently new environments introduce new bacteria and viruses that may have life threatening new impacts on weakened immune systems.
- Nutrition is important- Even the best institutional facilities fall short in providing the quality nutrition that can be prepared in a home environment by a qualified caregiver. Good nutrition for clients who are advanced in age or who may have compromised health is one of the most important factors in improving the quality of life.
- Life Expectancy is greater at home- Numerous studies have concluded that clients live longer in the home due to a number of environmental factors. The greatest of these may be the increased level of human interaction associated with being cared for on a one to one client to caregiver ratio. In retirement homes caregivers may be required to provide for up to 20 clients at once leading to unnecessary neglect.
- Companionship is important- Oftentimes clients report that one of the most rewarding aspects of their lives is the relationship they enjoy with a family pet. The great majority of institutional facilities do not allow pets which have been proven to assist elderly patients with late life challenges.
- Caregivers are closely monitored- If your loved one is in an institutional environment, you may not be aware of staffing changes associated with the care they receive. With private duty nursing, you will have the confidence that every individual that cares for your loved one has been rigorously screened and will be carefully monitored on a daily basis. With Rehab Home Health, any change with the caregiver assigned to provide for your loved one will be reported in advance.
