What is Homecare?
Why should I choose Homecare?
• Homecare keeps families together
This is particularly important in times of illness when families desire to be near one another for support. Homecare is a comforting alternative to premature admission to a long-term care facility. Since most people would prefer to stay in their own homes as long as possible, homecare can provide a level of service that is customised to the client’s needs.
• Homecare is safe and can promote healing
Many risks, such as infection, are eliminated or minimised when care is provided in the home. There is scientific evidence that many clients heal faster at home. Caremark support this research by caring for people in their homes.
• Homecare is less expensive than other forms of care
If skilled care is not needed around the clock, homecare can allow you to create a customised care plan that meets your needs and your budget.
• Homecare is the preferred form of care
Studies have shown that 95% of those aged 75 and older prefer to stay in their current residence for as long as possible.
