Benefits of Having Personal Care Assistance in Your Senior Living Community
- Rapid Recovery: Personal Care Assistants (PCAs) help residents regain their independence and return to their optimal level of function following an injury or other health challenge. Studies show that these services can shorten recovery time by 50% and help clients achieve a better quality of life than if they hadn’t had PCA services. Some studies suggest that PCAs reduce healthcare costs by preventing hospital readmissions and transfers to skilled nursing facilities.
- Individual Focus: Personal care assistants (PCAs) are part of your senior’s support team. They help with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing and getting out of bed or chairs. PCAs also assist with taking medications and monitoring vital signs. They provide physical assistance when needed, but they do not provide medical services, so they complement doctors’ orders for medicine and treatment.
- Affordability: The cost of hiring a Personal Care Assistant in your senior living community is less than you think. Many families believe they can’t afford in-home care, but many find that it is more affordable than they thought.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
We all hope to age in place, but many older adults find themselves facing a more challenging future than they’d expected. In fact, according to one recent study, 88 per cent of Americans over 65 have difficulty performing daily activities. The benefits of moving into a senior living community are clear—the convenience, safety, and supportive environment of an assisted living facility can help you maintain your independence while ensuring that your needs are met. If you’re dealing with any chronic condition, it may be time to consider assisted living or a senior care community.
