When a loved one cannot safely carry out day-to-day activities without assistance, it may be time to explore your in-home care options. However, how do you know when it’s time to reach out to a home care provider such as Progressive Home Health Services, Inc. in New York, NY?
In most cases, people require care when everyday activities like bathing and taking medications become too burdensome or dangerous to perform without assistance. Additionally, if an elderly person becomes cognitively impaired, he or she may need assistance with daily activities and personal care. Home Health Services can help reassure families that their loved ones can safely remain at home through assistance in medication management, meal preparation, ambulation, and more. When considering options, families often compare the cost of in-home assistance to the cost of a residential establishment like an assisted-living facility. According to a survey by Genworth Financial, the average annual cost of an assisted-living facility can be more than $41,000, while the annual cost of home care can be about $30,000.
