A caregiver at home with an elderly couple playing a game of checkersThe rapidly expanding industry of long term aid now offers an abundance of options for those looking to receive assisted care in their daily lives.

With the advent of the baby-boomers, it seems that more and more people are looking into assisted care facilities and other forms of assisted living.

But how do you know what the best option is for you when there are so many out there? And are the prices really worth it? Alvita Care has the answers.

Although it is important to stay within budget and be aware of what is financially feasible for a long term care plan, the value of staying healthy and getting the assistance necessary is something that has to be considered as well. At Alvita Care, we encourage our clients to stay as independent and healthy as possible, offering varying levels of assisted living.

Dealing with loved ones who are struggling with newly diagnosed illnesses can make caring for them difficult. Especially if you yourself do not have a background in medicine, it can be difficult and sometimes stressful to know how to make your parents more comfortable. By hiring a certified home health aid, an additional hand can help to alleviate a lot of the stress and make visits home much more enjoyable.

Sometimes your aging loved ones might even respond better to suggestions made by a third party. If your aging parents are picky eaters or resist physical therapy and exercise, having a caregiver can help to act as a voice of authority to ensure that they stay healthy, happy, and independent for as long as possible.

In fact bringing having a caregiver in your parents’ own home can help them to stay independent and feel empowered at the same time. By living at home, your aging parents can continue to go about their daily activities while you have the peace of mind that they are being safely looked after.

While living in an assisted living facility might also provide your parents’ with the supervision necessary, a personalized and well matched caregiver can make a difference when it comes to care. Not only do long-term caregivers tend to be more compassionate and caring about their patients, but when compatible, can even become part of the family.
