As more of the baby boomer generation reaches the age of senior citizens, the demand for in-home care services will continue to increase. The new generation of senior citizens clearly prefers aging in place to living in a retirement home so they can maintain a level of independence in their own homes. However, it is common for senior citizens who have chosen to age in place, or their families, to seek out some help so they can continue to live in their homes safely and comfortably. Senior citizens and adults with disabilities may need assistance with a variety of matters from personal hygiene to help with errands and housekeeping.
When an adult family member needs additional care, their families will take care of this in one of three ways.
They may have a family member act as an informal caregiver to provide care, hire an independent caregiver, or work with a home care agency to provide in-home care services. While the first two options are generally more cost-effective, there are many more benefits to working with an home care agency like Assisting Hands Home Care.
