1.WHY DO YOU NEED HOME CARE?
Let the truth be told,care at the comfort of your home is not for everyone,its meant for those who have a genuine need for it and can afford it.
For example; an eighty year old woman who stays with her children in the city, the children will go to work from 7 am and return back 7 pm, when they are back,they are exhausted, they go to mama’s room and spend 20 minutes and go to bed.
16 hours or more of complete loneliness,everyday multiply by God knows how many months or years, this is simply punishment.
Put yourself in her shoes,will you want to be treated this way?
She needs a companion, someone to talk to,someone to argue with,someone to play with and that is where a trained caregiver comes in.
She isn’t a pet to be kept in a cage,she needs care and because you are not available cause of your work,someone trained to care must be around her all the time.
Another example is a 70 year old stroke patient who is recuperating at home,he has either hemiplegia, paraplegia or quadriplegia which is simply paralysis.
Psychologically,he is not stable,physically unstable,emotionally imbalance and generally unhappy.
You don’t need a house boy or a relative to care for this man,it is simply an act of punishment if you do so, because what this man need is more that bathing or wearing cloth for him,what he need is wholistic care.
A professional that will care for him totally.
A professional care giver that knows what he wants before he ask,that has the basic and profound knowledge of what happened to him and what he might be going through and knows exactly what to do to help him.
2.CAN YOU AFFORD HOMECARE?
HOMECARE might be difficult to maintain, if you consider the financial aspect.
This is as a result of the fact that we do not have plan for HOME CARE while saving for retirement.
HOMECARE is not a luxury but a necessity, we all want to live good lives and be comfortable.
So,the question should be how much can’t I spend to be comfortable.
No matter how much home care is, it is worth it as long as the goals are met.
You should know that there is no fix price for homecare.
But always be careful when the price is too low or too high.
When the price is too low,be sure the service will be the same.
In a country far away from ours,approximately 50% of old people have engage the services of HOMECARE at one point or the other because they have the in depth knowledge of what homecare nursing is and have saved for it.
Its like saving water for a journey to the desert.
Homecare helps in prolonging life and what ever the cost,its worth it.
