In-Home Care with On Call Care Services, LLC

A recent study found an overwhelming majority of seniors (86 percent) want to continue living at home for as long as possible. Seniors appear to be willing to seek help to do that.

The study found that 54 percent of seniors who live alone are four times more likely to use professional care than those who live with their children.

Every day, more and more families desire senior care services that are provided in the comfort and safety of home.

  • Home care services keep families together. There is no more important social value. It is particularly important in times of illness.
  • Home care serves to keep the elderly independent. None of us want to be totally dependent and helpless. With some assistance, seniors can continue to function as viable members of society.
  • Home care help prevent or postpone institutionalization. Few patients choose to be placed in a nursing home, unless it’s the only place where they can obtain the 24-hour care that they need.
  • Home care does promotes healing and independence. There is abundant evidence that patients heal more quickly at home and thus creates a sense of comfort and independence.

  • Home care is personalized care. It is tailored to the needs of each individual. It is delivered on a one-to-one basis.
  • Home care involves the individual and the family in the care that is delivered. The patient and his family are taught to participate in their health care. They are taught how to get well, and how to stay that way.

  • Home care is one of the most effective forms of health care. This is why there is very high consumer satisfaction associated with care delivered in the home.

The patient and/or his family supply the food and tend to the individual’s other needs. Technology now has developed to the point where many services, once only available in a hospital, can be offered at home.
  • Home care is given by special people. By and large, employees of home care agencies look at their work, not as a job or profession, but as a calling. Home care workers are highly trained and dedicated to their work.
  • Why Home care is, in many cases, less expensive than other forms of care. The evidence is convincing that, for many services, home care is less expensive than other forms of care. In general, home care costs only one-tenth as much as hospitalization and only one-fourth as much as nursing home placement to deal with comparable health problems.
  • Home care extends life. A study by the U.S. General Accounting Office has established that people receiving home care tend to live longer and have a better quality of life. Home care helps not only add years to life, but “life to years.”
  • Home care is the preferred form of care, even for individuals who are terminally ill. There is a growing public acceptance and demand for hospice care, which is home care for individuals who are terminally ill. Please Contact us with any questions you may have.
