Why Not a Nursing Home?

Nursing homes are sometimes a cheaper option, and a permanent solution for a family member who needs care. Why not choose one?

  • Nursing homes are sterile, cold and institutional and may cause a significant increase of stress levels in patients.
  • A home is familiar and comforting, and provides a better environment for healing.
  • People sometimes fear that a family member or loved one at home might not be getting the care they need. That is the value of home health care. People can remain at home, where the environment is the most conducive to getting well, and still make sure their health care needs are being met.

A sterile room in a nursing home may cause patients to feel that they are still in the hospital, which makes healing more difficult overall.

For peace of mind and patient wellness, home health care is always a better alternative.
