Why Home Care?

Depositphotos 6596764 original

There is growing public demand for health care services that are available to the public in their own homes. The reasons have to do with tradition, with technology, and with cost effectiveness.

Home care is the oldest form of healthcare – and it is also the “newest." Modern technology has developed to the point where many services that are available in the hospital can be provided at home. There is significant evidence that it is less costly than other forms of care, and that it is the most satisfying form of health care available to the American public. It is an idea whose time has come.

So… Why Home Care?

  • It is delivered at home. There are such positive feelings that all of us associate with being home. When we are not feeling well, most of us ask to go home. When we are feeling well, we enjoy the sanctity of our residences and the joy of being with our 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 elderly independent. None of us want 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 patients choose to be placed in a nursing home, unless it’s the only place where they can obtain the 24-hour care that they need.
  • Home care promotes healing. There is abundant evidence that patients heal more quickly at home.
  • Home care allows a maximum amount of freedom for the individual. Hospitals and nursing homes offer more regimented, regulated environments. Home care offers a reassuring, individualized setting. 
  • Home care is personalized care. Home care is tailored to the needs of each individual. It is delivered on a one-to-one basis.
  • Home care involves the individual and the family in the care that is delivered. The patient and his family are taught to participate in their health care. They are taught how to get well, and how to stay that way.
  • Home care reduces stress. Unlike most forms of health care which can increase anxiety and stress, home care frequently has the opposite effect.
  • 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 an efficient form of health care. By bringing health services home, the patient does not generate board and room expenses. The patient and/or his family supply the food and tend to the individual’s other needs. Technology now has developed to the point where many services, once only available in a hospital, can be offered at 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.

Respite Care in Brooklyn, New York

Caring for an Aging Loved One? We Can Help!

Many times, caring for a client involves family, so Rosetta Care of Brooklyn can also play a role in providing “respite care” for the family caregiver (i.e., a wife caring for a husband or a daughter/son caring for her/his parents). Constant caregiving can bring considerable stress, because the caregiver’s focus is centered on the one needing care. Very often, we see that when we give relief with daily routines, allowing the family caregiver(s) more time for themselves, the relationship strengthens.

In the 21st Century, the demands placed on family and other informal caregivers continue to escalate, and will eventually affect nearly every American family. It’s everyone’s greatest fear: a parent starts to forget things…he becomes bewildered, confused, and angry…finally, he can’t take care of himself and needs full-time care. Adult children are increasingly faced with their biggest nightmare – parents who are as helpless as young children.

If you find yourself caring for an aging loved one, you are not alone! Consider the following:

  • Nearly a quarter (23.9%) of U.S. households are now involved in caring for an elderly family member or relative, spending an average of 20 hours a week in caregiving-related chores.
  • Some 80% of caregivers provide unpaid assistance seven days a week.
  • More than 60% of all family caregivers say they have suffered from depression. (Source: National Family Caregivers Association/Fortis Long Term Care, 1998)
  • Long distance caregivers miss nearly 15 million days of work each year. (Source: National Council on Aging/The Pew Charitable Trusts, 1998)
  • Long-term family caregiving takes a significant toll on workers. Lost productivity, absenteeism, interruptions and replacing employees due to elder care costs American business in excess of $11.4 billion annually. (Source: National Alliance for Caregiving/Glaxo Welcome Report, 1997)
  • A significant decline in the number of family caregivers is occurring in the U.S., while at the same time, the demand for elder care is increasing.

Rosetta Care of Brooklyn can help you by providing:

  • Qualified, caring, trained, insured, bonded, and flexible caregivers who can help you take a few hours, without feeling guilty or stressed, while you take care of yourself or other members of your family. Our caregivers can assist your elderly loved one for a few hours a week, a few hours a day, or more. Giving yourself a little bit of time away may be just what the doctor ordered and will help you to be a much better family caregiver.
  • In-home assessments. We routinely perform in-home assessments that result in a customized care plan for your loved ones. You may choose to have us carry out the care plan in whole or in part, or you may simply choose to use the care plan to improve your own ability to care for your loved one.
  • Access to information and training for caregivers. We have access to (and offer) a wealth of information, training and resources for caregivers.
  • Fall-prevention assessments and training. One of the largest sources of injuries among seniors is falling. We can help you assess the risks that your loved one faces and provide education on how to minimize the risk of falling. Also, if you request, we will even conduct a free workshop on fall prevention for your group. Visit the Fall Prevention section to learn more.
  • Home safety checks. We have extensive experience in the multi-faceted process of ensuring that your loved one’s home is safe, which is vital to maintaining independence for as long as possible.
  • Support and understanding. We can help you get connected with support groups and individuals in our area that can help YOU, as well as help you care for your loved one.

So if you are a family caregiver in needs of some help, don’t hesitate to contact us. You can talk to us about your unique situation, schedule a free in-home assessment, and be well on your way to a happier, healthier life for you and your loved one.

Before beginning services, we need to know more about you. We begin with a complimentary assessment to determine your care needs. We start the process by conducting an in-depth assessment of you or your loved one's lifestyle, medical conditions and the kind of assistance needed that will help them to remain independent at home. We will meet with you and your family and jointly determine the scope of care.

During the meeting, we explain fully the services available, answer any additional questions, and help with the important care decisions faced by the family with a loved one in need.

Issues covered include the following:

  • Matching the appropriate caregiver
  • Daily routines
  • Health and medication issues
  • Emergency response
  • Nutritional issues
  • Home cleaning issues
  • Transportation needs
  • Costs of services

After meeting with the senior or family, a customized and comprehensive Care Plan is developed to meet the physical, psychological and social needs of the senior and the family.

We take a holistic approach to matching the best caregiver with your loved one, taking into account such important elements as the senior's needs and personality. Moreover, ongoing follow-up supervision ensures that the care plan is well-implemented and that the senior’s changing needs are met with diligence. We are always mindful of family finances, and we can create a care plan that meets almost anyone’s budget.

So don’t delay – take advantage of this no-obligation opportunity to assess your needs and discover how we can significantly improve your life and the life of your loved one.
