Many of the services that previously required a hospital stay can now be provided in the home; consequently, the demand for home health care service continues to rise. A study conducted by the U.S. General Accounting Office finds that people who receive home care enjoy a better quality of life and tend to live longer.
There are numerous reasons that individuals choose home health care for their elderly loved ones:
- Seniors can remain comfortable in their homes, which offer them a sense of independence.
- Family members do not have to worry because they know a caregiver is helping their loved one with daily activities.
- When compared to the cost of inpatient care, home health care is a less costly option.
10 Reasons Georgetown Home Care Makes In-Home Care Better
In 2005, Tim Bradshaw created Affordable Senior Home Care. John Bradshaw decided to re-brand the family company in 2014, changing the name to Georgetown Home Care. The Bradshaw family still owns and operates Georgetown Home Care today.
Tim and John’s father suffered with congestive heart failure. Initially, siblings who resided nearby cared for their father; however, as their father’s condition deteriorated, primary caregivers became necessary. The Bradshaw family knows how difficult making decisions for an elderly loved one is. This experience prompted the brothers to help others dealing with similar issues.
