Home Health Care vs. Nursing Homes: Is Home Health Care the Right Choice?

    With diverse health care models available for our aging loved ones, determining the effectiveness and financial impact of each choice can be daunting. Home health care is emerging as a choice that addresses the need for cost-efficiency, medical benefits, and the emotional well-being of patients.

    We not only want to ensure that we choose an affordable managed care plan, but one that will allow our loved one to enjoy an ideal quality of life. While nursing homes and other care facilities strive to offer quality care to their patients, AARP has found that more than 80% of US adults over the age of 50 say they prefer to remain at home as they age.

    The transition from one’s home to an institutional setting can be challenging. As research has concluded, health and happiness are indeed linked and a positive outlook can help patients heal faster and enjoy better overall health.

    Research shows that not only are patients and their families significantly more satisfied with home health care, but patients may have more positive medical outcomes and find financial benefits as well. Our infographic below highlights these findings to help you and your family compare nursing home care vs home health care.
