How We Assist With Aging in Place in Chadds Ford
When aging in place doesn't seem like a possibility for your loved one, the compassionate caregivers at Visiting Angels® Chadds Ford can help. At our local care agency, we know how desperately most seniors want to live in their own homes. To help them do so, we offer a vast range of in-home care services delivered by care professionals. With our professional support, aging in place can be a reality even for elderly adults who face challenging age-related conditions or memory disorders.
The Importance of Aging in Place
Most seniors would express a preference for aging in place if asked. In fact, AARP has even conducted a study showing 90% of adults 65 and over want to live at home as they age. When you realize that living at home often translates to seniors maintaining their independence and daily routines, it's easy to see why many would choose to age in place over moving to a senior care facility.
In-Home Care vs. Assisted Living
In-home care offers a number of benefits that assisted living does not. For one, in-home care gives seniors the opportunity to continue going about their daily rhythms and routines on their own terms. Rather than having to change their lifestyle to receive care, they can benefit from the helping hand of a care professional as part of their normal day-to-day.
In addition to promoting seniors' social, mental, and emotional well-being by allowing them to remain in familiar surroundings, in-home care can also be beneficial to their physical health. Research has shown that elderly adults who receive care at home tend to have better health outcomes than those who are cared for in an assisted living center or other type of shared facility. This may be because contagious illnesses can spread rapidly in shared living environments.
