What are the benefits of home care vs a care home?

Choosing home care over a care home comes with a number of benefits you may not have considered before in your search, including promoting independence, the fact that you get to remain where you are most comfortable and have as much control over your care as possible.


  • Home care means you get to remain in your home

The care home environment is not a good match for everybody, especially those who enjoy their own company and have a special attachment to their home. Our home care service means that you don’t have to leave your home or any of your most treasured possessions and memories behind in order to receive quality care from trained professionals.


  • Home care preserves your independence for longer

Having the freedom to carry out your daily routine as normal is a big benefit to choosing home care over a care home. Our carers can give you their undivided attention when undergoing a welfare check or providing home care for you and tailor their care plan to suit your needs. Home care is more flexible than a care home, allowing you to retain your independence and have total input into your own care for as long as possible.


  • Home care makes it easier for you to do the things you enjoy

Many people are active members of their local community and have a range of hobby’s that a care home  potentially cannot accommodate as frequently as they would like. Home care makes keeping in touch with friends and family and enjoying favourite pastimes much easier than in a care home environment, as our care is totally centred around you and your needs.

Our carers take the time to get to know you as an individual and tailor care plans to suit not only your health requirements, but to accommodate your routine and hobbies too! Contact our expert care team today to find out more on 01425 470 411.
