In part one of our blog series on the many benefits of home healthcare, we discussed how difficult it can be to take care of your aging parent or loved one on your own. The physical and mental strain can often weigh heavily on an individual who is simply trying to avoid sending their elderly loved one to a nursing home or extended care facility. We also discussed some of the reasons that home healthcare is a great option for your whole family. Your elderly loved one is more content and comfortable with the ability to remain at home, they enjoy some of the freedoms that they’ve always enjoyed, and receiving visits from friends and family are so much easier.

In today’s blog post, we’ll continue learning about all of the ways that that home health care is beneficial for you and your elderly loved one. We’ll also discuss the many services that Nova Home Healthcare offers to the amazing community of Fairfax. Continue reading on to learn more about this life-changing option for families with elderly parents in need of care.

Benefits of Home Care

No Trauma From Change

As anyone who has worked with older seniors can tell you, major changes that occur in their lives can be extremely difficult for them to deal with. Significant life changes, including moving from home to a care facility, can bring out a number of physical, mental, and physiological issues. Traumatic changes of this nature can make memory problems worse, increase the physical manifestation of problems already present but lying dormant, or cause a whole host of other issues that could affect your loved one, your family, and yourself. What better reason to keep your loved one in the comfort and familiarity of home?
