Things to Think About
When the time comes that you would benefit from some extra support with personal care or companionship, you will most likely find yourself evaluating two options – home care or moving to a community? When people ask us, which is better, the answer is – it’s different for everyone. Some of variables are your current living situation, social situation, finances, and support system. Things to consider:
- How much support can family and friends provide?
- How isolated will I be from my social circles if I remain at home with or without services?
- How long can my home accommodate my needs?
- At what point does the cost for home care become such that living in a community is more cost-effective?
