The Benefits of In-Home Care

The Benefits of In-Home Care

When you look at the numbers, it becomes clear that the United States is in a caregiving crisis of sorts. With Baby Boomers entering their senior years, America’s current system doesn’t have the resources needed to care for all of them. More importantly, seniors are beginning to reject the idea of spending their later years in an assisted living or nursing home.

By providing in-home care for seniors, we’re able to offer them a safe, comfortable, and affordable place to enjoy their time.

Meeting the Desires of Seniors

Today, so many seniors wish to stay in their homes for as long as possible that the practice has been deemed “aging in place.” With nine in 10 seniors wishing to stay in their home, there has never been a greater demand for in-home care.

Filling in the Gaps in Existing Care

In 2014, there were more than 46 million people over the age of 65 living in the United States — they represented 14.5 percent of the population at the time. Over the years, the senior population has only increased due to our growing life expectancy. But unfortunately, the number of caregivers is steadily decreasing.

Reducing Healthcare Costs

Assisted living and nursing homes can cost several thousand dollars a month, and are relatively standard, meaning many people pay for services they don’t need. On the contrary, in-home care is incredibly customizable. From medical care to companion care, our franchisees can rest assured knowing that they’re providing a valuable service at an affordable price.

We’ve also found that elderly Americans who receive home care have an average of 25% fewer doctor visits each year than older adults who live without such care.
