Benefits of Home Care compared to Aged Care Facilities

Benefits of Home Care compared to Aged Care Facilities

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, there are around 4.2 million Australians aged 65 and over. Unfortunately, many of these older Australians may be unable to care for themselves. Hence, many people may need to consider whether their loved one will require increased assistance by living in an aged care facility.

Aged care facilities are best suited for older people who can no longer live at home due to increased care needs. Although these facilities can be very helpful, there are some disadvantages of living in aged care homes such as:

  • Increased financial burden.
  • Feelings of isolation and loneliness
  • Possibility of sub-quality care and/or negligence

However, with the rise in home care service providers, older Australians have the option of staying in their homes for longer. Some of the potential benefits of staying in aging in your home are:

  • Cost-effective option
  • Increased sense of familiarity
  • Increased opportunities for socialisation with friends and family
  • More opportunities for personalised care needs

At Home Care Assistance SE Melbourne, we offer a range of services to assist with caring for your loved one.

I really like working at Homecare Assistance the Office Team are very helpful and they give me plenty of work.
Recently I had a situation where due to a family crisis, I needed respite assistance for a couple of days. Home Care Assistance provided a quick response to my query and were able to get a... person for me in time for me to go to my brother's funeral in another state. The person who stayed and looked after my father was very caring, compassionate and reliable. I was extremely happy with the service provided.read more

We have been with Home Care assistance for last three years. I am impressed by the diversity of the services, they provide.I had few carers but the carer, Shweta, has been coming to us for last two... years, has been a Godsend. She pushes him to do the things which i am unable to. It’s a compliment to Homecare assistance to employ professionals of that standard.No matter what problem I incur, all I have to do is to ring the agency..The eagerness and understanding towards the need of the client is amazing.I would recommend Homecare assistance to anyone and everyone, who requires assistance in all aspects of life.In my case i am grateful of the help i am getting to look after my husband.read more
