Austin Senior Care: In-Home vs. Facility Care

Austin facility care, Austin senior in-home care, Austin senior facility careWhen you consider long term care options for seniors, there is a big difference for your loved one. We are strong advocates of in-home elderly care assistance in Austin because:

  • Seniors want to be home: According to the AARP, 89% of people ages 50+ wish to remain in their homes indefinitely. When they stay in their home, they get elderly care assistance in the comfort of their own belongings and community.
  • Personal attention: In home care offers 1-1 attention, customized meals, personalized daily activities, and a range of services based on the needs of each client.
  • Less expensive: You can save money by utilizing in home care, particularly when the care is minimal (can add hours as they are needed) and non-medical.

There are, however, times when Austin in-home care facilities (assisted living in a home setting), assisted living community, or nursing home facility may become a necessary option for families:

  • There is a decline in health or a medical need for health care professionals
  • Extensive mobility problems
  • Home modification is required and cost-prohibitive

The ideal option is to allow a senior to remain as independent as possible through elderly care assistance. That is why we offer non-medical services from as little as 4 hours at a time up through 24 hour care.
