LOS ANGELES, CA, March 26, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- As the "baby boom" generation heads toward retirement and life expectancies continue to lengthen, there is a growing population of older Americans, but little consensus over how best to help them enjoy their golden years. Many if not most seniors would prefer to remain living independently, in their own homes, for as long as possible. This can make their adult children nervous, however, especially if they do not live close by. A nursing home or an assisted care facility can come to seem like the only sensible option.
But it's not -- in-home care can provide the benefits of having an aide to check in, monitor health, and help with day-to-day needs, while also allowing older people to maintain a sense of independence and continue to live in their own homes. In-home care
provides a more personalized experience as well, as both the care recipient and his or her loved ones get to know the caregiver.
"A qualified home care agency can provide you with the assurances you need that you won't necessarily get from an individual independent caregiver," explains Ed Morris, founder of Los Angeles-based homecare agency Abbey Caregivers. "You and your loved ones will get to know one caregiver, but at the same time, you aren't completely reliant on that one person. If something comes up and your caregiver can't be there, you can relax knowing that an agency will be able to send someone else."
The in-home caregivers provided by Abbey Caregivers are insured and bonded, have undergone pre-employment background checks, and undergo continuous assessment to ensure that they provide quality care. They work to provide excellent elder care at a reasonable cost, offering a more personalized approach and giving seniors greater independence than an assisted-living facility.
