Why Home Care?

Dependable, Trustworthy, and Compassionate Home Care That Keeps Your Loved One At Home

Many people prefer home care as an option, and for a good reason. Why would you not want to stay home? Your home is a place where you feel safe and secure, emotionally and physically. While care can be received in assisted living facilities, retirement communities, or nursing homes, many people prefer to receive care at home to maintain a sense of routine and normalcy - as opposed to a move that might be more disruptive than helpful.

Home care is quickly growing in popularity as public demand rises. It offers many benefits that clients and families value over a facility option. Home care allows clients to maintain a sense of independence in their daily lives, boosts overall morale when clients achieve a feeling of well-being, and provides a sense of relief to our client's families knowing their loved one is properly cared for. At Comforting Arms, we strive to hire trustworthy and compassionate caregivers to assist clients with their specific needs.

Reasons to Consider Home Care

Home Care is Personalized Care
Home care provided by Comforting Arms is tailored to the needs of each individual. It is delivered on a one-to-one basis by our extraordinary caregivers.
Home Care Reduces Stress.
Unlike most forms of health care, in-home care reduces anxiety and stress for both the care-receiver and their loved ones.
Home care keeps families together.
There is no more important social value. It is particularly important in times of illness.
Home care serves to keep the people independent.
None of us wants to be totally dependent and helpless. With some assistance, seniors can continue to function as viable members of society.
Home care prevents or postpones institutionalization.
Few people choose to be placed in a nursing home or assisted living, unless it’s the only place where they can obtain the care they need.
Home care promotes healing.
There is abundant evidence that people heal more quickly at home.
Home care is one of the most effective forms of health care.
There is very high consumer satisfaction associated with care delivered in the home.
Home care is given by special people.
By and large, employees of home care agencies look at their work, not as a job or profession, but as a calling. Home care workers are highly trained and dedicated to their work.
Home care is, in many cases, less expensive than other forms of care.
The evidence is convincing that, for many services, home care is less expensive than other forms of care. In general, home care costs only one-tenth as much as hospitalization and only one-fourth as much as nursing home placement to deal with comparable health problems.
Home care extends life.
A study by the U.S. General Accounting Office has established that people receiving home care tend to live longer and have a better quality of life. Home care helps not only add years to life, but “life to years.”
Home care is the preferred form of care, even for individuals who are terminally ill.
There is a growing public acceptance and demand for hospice care, which is home care for individuals who are terminally ill.
