Advantages of Home Care
Home care provides the comfort and convenience of health services in familiar surroundings. It offers a cost-effective alternative to hospitalization or long-term care.
Each year, over two million families experience the supportive care provided by Visiting Nurses Associations throughout America. Here are some valuable benefits home care offers:
- Preserved dignity and a sense of control
- Helps maintain involvement with family and friends
- Reduces the strain of hospital or nursing home bills for long term care
- Relieves the stresses associated with caring for a loved one at home
We work with families, physicians, and other health providers to create a plan of care that's right for you. Our staff is available 24 hours a day.
