More than 65 million Americans juggle the daily demands of work, home, children and caring for someone who may be disabled, ill, or aging. Managing busy home lives and the emotional decisions that must be made when caring for a loved one can be overwhelming to most.
Parents and adult children may live thousands of miles away from one another, separated by different cities, or even states. Often, the demands and pressure of providing care can result in caregiver burnout—a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion. It occurs when family caregivers do not get the help they need and are trying to do more than they are able to.

For many families, home care is a beneficial choice—a safe and affordable solution that supports the family, while allowing your loved ones to stay in the comfort of their own homes and communities.
If you are caring for a loved one, here are many ways home care can support you:
Home care professionals can be there when you aren't able to be. If you are caregiving from a distance, home care can give you peace of mind. Trained and qualified professionals can assess safety risks and make simple corrections in the home—from placing a rug on a slippery floor, to recommendations for ambulatory assistance.
Home care supports activities of daily living (ADLs) & instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs). In-home services allow adults to receive day-to-day help with the personal care they need, preserving their dignity and maintaining a good quality of life. Assistance with activities of daily living can include bathing, grooming, and medication reminders.
Support with diet and nutrition. Are your loved ones getting the nutrition they need to stay healthy? Adults age 65 and older, people with chronic conditions, and those recently discharged from a hospital or nursing facility are likely to be nutritionally at-risk. Aging, bed rest, illness, and injury can all contribute to the loss of lean body mass. Home care may include nutritional counseling and home-cooked meals to protect your loved ones against malnutrition.
Home care professionals provide caring companionship. Research shows that aging adults stay healthier with social interaction. Home aides can become trusted friends for walks, reading, cards, games, movies, meals, and other social activities. Accompaniment on errands such as grocery shopping, medical appointments, and other activities are also added benefits.
Home care helps with light household chores. When aging adults struggle the daily demands of housework, such as laundry, vacuuming, dishes, and simple chores home care helps to consistently maintain a safe and healthy living environment.
Home care clients have comparable or better health outcomes. Research has shown that clinical results are comparable or better with fewer complications when home care is provided to individuals with chronic conditions such as pneumonia, diabetes, or COPD.
One-on-one focus and support. Home care services are truly unique, providing meaningful, one-on-one personal and skilled care that builds strong bonds between professionals and their clients.
