Home Care vs. Assisted Living: Which is the Best Choice for your Loved One?

November 21, 2016 | Blog

At Spring Hills, we understand that making the choice between home care and assisted living isn’t an easy one. Fortunately, both services offer unique advantages, each designed to enhance the quality of life and well-being of loved ones who require care.

Living Arrangements & Amenities

Assisted Living

While it is not uncommon for some to be at first apprehensive about assisted living, many come to realize that it does offer a very loving and supportive environment. Each of our resort-like Spring Hills facilities is designed to be welcoming, from the dining room (complete with our Signature Dining) to the shared or private suites to the outdoor grounds. At Spring Hills, residents who love their furry friends can take advantage of our unique PAW (Pets Are Welcome) Program.

Private Home Care

Home care allows seniors to live at home, where they may feel most comfortable. Though their caregiver may not reside with them on a 24-hour basis, they can assist in all daily activities, such as meal preparation, running errands, and household chores. Whether you request a bilingual caregiver or your loved one would like somebody who shares in their beliefs, at Spring Hills we strive to pair each senior with a caregiver best suited to their needs and interests.

 

Socialization & Activities

Assisted Living

Assisted living facilities like Spring Hills offer an abundance of Signature Programs, including wellness classes and group events. These activities are designed to foster an environment built upon healthy social interaction. From playing card games in a common area to chatting over meals together to participating in one of our on-site events, seniors have ample opportunity to form lasting relationships and stimulate their minds and senses.

Private Home Care

Private home care allows seniors the opportunity to interact with family members and friends who may not be able to visit an assisted living facility as frequently as they’d like. While some believe private home care limits the opportunity to form new relationships, Spring Hills home care seniors can participate in our Signature Programs, attending ongoing wellness classes and social events with their caregiver. This means they do have the opportunity to interact with others!

 

Medical Care and Attention

Whether you and your loved one opt for assisted living or private home care, you can experience the benefit of 24/7 monitoring via or unique Signature Trends. Through this program, you can be ensured that your loved is receiving proper medical attention, as well as having their daily activities monitored to ensure they are living healthily and happily.
