The Benefits of Home Care Over Nursing Homes

When you are looking for care options for your elderly loved ones, it’s important to find them the best care possible. As you start your search for the possibilities, you will likely find two main choices: home care and nursing homes/assisted living. While both have their benefits, at Alliance Homecare, we believe that home care services are more effective, have better health results, and will keep those you care about the most comfortable.

At Alliance, we always treat each and every client with respect and care. One of our core values is The Grandma Rule℠. This states that we will give everyone the same care that we would provide our own grandmothers! Get in touch with us today to discuss home health aide in Manhattan, New York. We look forward to helping your loved ones with exceptional care!

Nursing Homes/Assisted Living

To begin, we’ll look at some of the information regarding nursing homes. These assisted living facilities can be good choices for individuals who require intensive medical care or have issues with cognitive function and memory. However, in many cases they are not the best choice for the client. When moving into long-term care facilities, your loved ones will be leaving behind their own homes, which means a loss of comfort, freedom, and often some amount of dignity.

As the world faces uncertain times due to COVID-19, one of the most dangerous places to be is in a nursing home. According to statistics, more than 40% of deaths caused by the virus in the United States are in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, even though only 10% of cases are in these institutions. States are still compiling data, but the median fatality rate for COVID patients is 17%, and more than 14,000 long-term care facilities have reported one or more cases of coronavirus.

Home Care

If you would like more personalized care for your loved ones, then private nursing care can be the better option! At Alliance Homecare, we provide at-home medical care for our clients with the comfort, freedom, and dignity they deserve, and this is due to the simple fact that they can stay in their own homes. Since they are in their own homes, the family is encouraged to support and participate in care and regular activities. While most facilities throughout New York report approximately 20% hospital readmission rates, ours is as low as 5%! We also are equipped and able to care for patients with Alzheimers and dementia, and nearly 20% of our clients in 2019 and 2020 have had some form of these diseases.

Throughout the past few months, we have been more diligent than ever due to coronavirus and its spread. Thanks to clients being in their homes, we are able to reduce the spread due to social distancing and reduced interactions where possible. Our staff is taking extra care during this time so that we can provide high-quality care and avoid illness.
