Is there a Need for Home Care Services
Senior home care services now available in Halton & Peel
There is a need for Home Health Care Services and that need is escalating, as the elderly population numbers continue to increase. Part of this upsurge is due to:
- Senior citizens are living longer and “baby-boomers” are swiftly approaching their retirement years.
- Home Care Assistance enables people to be managed and monitored in their own homes and communities.
- Because of the high costs of health care in hospitals, patients are being discharged early. Many require short-term home support services as they recuperate.
- Elderly care in the home is more cost effective than care in hospitals.
- The quality of life improves for those people who are able to remain in their own homes.
- The burden on caregivers (family and/or friends who are providing direct care to someone) is increasing. Often this can result in caregiver burnout which, in turn, leads to the need for outside home care assistance.
