Home Care’s Key Role in Independent Living Communities

Posted: November 30, 2023

The natural effects of aging can sometimes make living independently more difficult. Everyday activities like shopping and preparing meals, driving to appointments or housework can be overwhelming as we age. Those challenges, however, don’t mean someone can’t stay in their home. Oftentimes, they just need a little help, like that provided through home care support. 

Home care support can provide assistance with a variety of daily living activities that help individuals retain their independence in their own apartments. Examples include shopping and meal preparation, transportation for picking up prescriptions, social visits and doctor’s appointments, and personal hygiene like showering, dressing and grooming. Personal care providers can also help with light housekeeping such as linen changes, taking out the trash and tidying up. 

Additionally, there’s often the option to sign up for medication management, like weekly medication box setup, help in coordinating prescriptions with a physician and even re-ordering prescriptions. 

Fostering Freedom through Home Care Services

There are many advantages to having home care support, such as that provided by Rhythms Home Care.

Depending on how much support is necessary, the cost of in-home care can be less expensive than residing in an Assisted Living Community. Perhaps you don’t need help everyday, but feel more comfortable if someone is there a couple of times a week to help run errands and tidy up a bit. Home care support is tailored to you or your loved one’s specific needs without paying for room and board. 

Bella Vita Benefits of Home Care SupportThrough home care services, you also get one-on-one, personalized assistance. At Rhythms Home Care, you are assigned a dedicated caregiver who will be with you the entire time. This allows you the opportunity to develop a personal relationship. With that comes a sense of security and comfort. Having a consistent care partner who knows your likes and dislikes can alleviate anxiety. 

By living independently in your home, you can more easily maintain your existing social connections. In-home senior care services help to keep a balanced rhythm of the family that is nourishing for the entirety.  In your home, you can also determine when guests are welcome, and can conveniently invite guests for an overnight visit. 

By living independently, older adults can stave off isolation by maintaining their social connections. The negative effects of isolation have been well documented. Older adults  who are isolated often develop feelings of hopelessness and depression. The negative effects on their mental health can lower their quality of life.

Having a helping hand through home care support allows older adults to maintain their  independence by enhancing their personal freedom and quality of life. And the benefits of living independently are numerous. The ability to make choices throughout the day has a big impact on how you feel about yourself. When you are no longer managing the decisions in your life, you might feel like less of an individual.  

Living independently allows older adults to take on the unique challenges of aging head on and overcome them with a sense of accomplishment.
