Why is home health care better?
Home Health Care is a better approach from alternative options because it is affordable and home is the best place for you to remain as you age. Hospital is necessary if you need acute emergency or surgical care, however, there are many signs and symptoms of deterioration in your health that can be managed earlier at home. Residential Aged Care Facilities are great if you don’t have the support you need at home, however, we know that remaining in your own home as long as possible is ideal and gives you peace of mind and helps to maintain your independence.
