The Benefits of Residential Care
Your beloved parent may prefer a more home-like setting than a nursing facility. When that's the case, Jennifer Button of A Home Away From Home recommends residential care. This type of care offers a homey environment with a smaller number of residents with the benefits of more supervision and often a lesser cost.
You'll find these board and care homes in residential neighborhoods in almost every small city or town. Caregivers usually cater to the needs of only six to ten residents and provide help with the tasks of daily living, such as:
- Bathing, Grooming, & Dressing
Residential care is right for a senior citizen who wants a cozier environment and has needs that can be better served in a setting where the resident-to-staff ratio is small. This way, your loved one's needs are met quickly, caringly, and efficiently.
