5 Ways In-House Caregiving Helps



Having a member of the family who is not faring well with their health is a physically and emotionally draining situation. Every day feels like a struggle. The medications and the regular trips to the hospital are stressful.

Thankfully, more and more companies are offering in-house caregiving services. Home-based palliative care has benefits that should not be dismissed. It should be considered as the best option for families going through these tough situations.

Many studies show that those who opt for palliative care at home tend to live longer than others. Here are some of the other good things that it brings.

    Specialised care. A palliative care team usually consists of at least a doctor, nurse, and a social worker. Having a reliable staff of experts at home increases the chances of your loved one living longer, or potentially getting better. Specialised care that is delivered in the safety of your home also fosters a great environment for the patient and your family.
    More support. Having medical staff working in your home makes emotional and medical support more available and accessible. This immediacy of help is one of the main factors that contribute to the overall satisfaction of patients, and the healing process of the family. Furthermore, live-in caregivers are able to provide more accurate observations and assessment of a patient’s and his or her family’s needs compared to practitioners whom only make medical visits.
    Less stress for the patient. It is a general truth that patients much prefer to be in the comfort of their own home than in a clinic or hospital. Your family member will be much happier and have an improved quality of life if you give him or her palliative care at home. Moreover, frequently visiting the hospital exposes the patient to potentially unwanted environments that cause stress, so getting care at home prevents this from happening.
    Less stress for you. Having less stress applies to other members of the family as well, as opting for such services lessens or eliminates the need for visiting hospitals for scheduled check-ups. This saves you much time, which you might prefer to spend with your loved one. With an expert team in your house, you can also be assured that you are getting extremely specialised care.
    Easier transitioning. The end goal of palliative care is not the hospice. In fact, many people do not choose to move to a hospice anymore because of their loved one’s improved condition. However, in cases where the patient qualifies for hospice care, receiving palliative care beforehand makes transitioning to the hospice easier.

Be with your loved ones in their twilight years, especially those needing special palliative care.
