Do you think a nursing home is safer and more affordable than hiring a personal caregiver?
Comparing nursing homes or assisted living facilities, in-home care is generally less costly. Even though many high-quality senior facilities provide a wide range of services, this “one-size-fits-all” approach may result in your beloved one overpaying for amenities that aren’t needed. Since in-home personal care providers offer various care options, many families can save financially by only paying for required services on the days and times when they are most needed – without sacrificing care quality or availability. Also, staying at home decreases the costs of moving and storing, which may be associated with moving to an older adult care facility.
