The benefits of receiving home care go beyond the obvious ones of comfort and convenience. Home care draws on the resources and support of the family and recognizes these as essential to the healing process.
Additionally, many physicians maintain that patients recuperate more quickly and more fully in a home environment, among family, friends and familiar settings. And with the cost of home health care averaging $86 versus $1,810 per day for a hospital visit, patients, insurers and providers all are realizing the substantial benefits associated with home healthcare.
One of the most satisfying features of home healthcare is the one-on-one relationship that patients develop with their home caregivers. People often are less threatened and feel more comfortable in their own homes.
This allows the patient/family and caregivers to form a team, and to develop a level of trust and compliance essential for treatment success.
