4 out of 5 older adults face at least one chronic condition such as arthritis, osteoporosis, or a heart disorder, and the number of people over age 65 is expected to increase to 80 million by 2040.
Chronic conditions or lack of mobility make it difficult for many aging people to live alone. Professional, non-medical home caregivers provide compassionate assistance and additional support for those who no longer have the ability to live independently.
Home Care Supports Family Caregivers
53 million Americans are currently providing home care for a loved one. Informal caregivers—unpaid family or community members that assist with non-medical home care services— provide an average of 20 hours per week of care.
Women are more likely than men to act as a caregiver for a family member, and caring for a loved one is linked to higher rates of emotional distress and chronic disease due to caregiver stress.
Formal non-medical home care services from caregivers provide support for the whole family. Trained professionals will be there even when you can’t be, and you can rest assured that your loved one is getting the compassionate care they deserve.
Home Care Supports Activities of Daily Living
Non-medical home care services allow aging adults to maintain a sense of independence and remain in their communities.
Because care plans can be customized, many older adults are able to continue their daily routines with additional support from professional caregivers.
Depending on the needs of the individual, this may look like help with household chores, managing finances, cooking nutritious meals, and medication management.
Home Care Promotes Better Health for Aging Individuals
Non-medical care services promote healthier aging for seniors who choose to age in the comfort of their own homes.
Many aging adults report feeling lonely or isolated, and a lack of social relationships is associated with an increased risk of physical health complications such as dementia, heart failure, heart disease, stroke, and hospitalization.
Being involved in the community, feeling independent, and living in a familiar environment with unrestricted visiting hours contribute to a happier, more meaningful life.
