The Benefits of In Home Care for Seniors in Suffield, CT
Learn about the benefits of in home care for seniors looking to remain independent at home.
According to research by the AARP, most American seniors want to remain in the comfort and convenience of their own home as they age, even if they face challenges in doing so. Each year, tens of millions of family caregivers help their senior loved ones by providing support and assistance with daily living tasks so that their loved ones are, in fact, able to remain at home. In most cases this support leads to senior independence, freedom, and an increased quality of life.
Sadly, for every senior who has this help and support, there is another one who does not. For these seniors, independence, and freedom are often replaced with social isolation, loneliness, chronic illness, and psychological distress. While these seniors do not generally enjoy a high quality of life, the troubling reality is that in most cases things did not have to turn out this way.
