In previous generations, it was common for senior citizens to receive care at a nursing home or assisted living facility if they could no longer live safely on their own. The current generation of seniors have reversed this trend as they are choosing to age in place instead of leaving their homes when they need care. Around 90 percent of seniors now prefer home care services so they can receive the care they need without giving up their homes.
When seniors choose to age in place, they are keeping more than their homes. They are also retaining independence and control of their lives that they would lose if they left for a nursing home. While many seniors can handle living at home on their own for a while, they will eventually need help with chores around the home and some personal care activities. When they reach this point, senior home care services are an ideal option.
