There is growing public demand for health care services that are available to the public in their own homes. The reasons have to do with tradition, with technology, and with cost effectiveness.
Home care is the oldest form of healthcare – and it is also the newest. Modern technology has developed to the point where many services that are available in the hospital can be provided at home. There is significant evidence that it is less costly than other forms of care, and that it is the most satisfying form of health care available to the American public.
Home Care Benefits
It is delivered at home. There are such positive feelings that all of us associate with being home. When we are not feeling well, most of us ask to go home. When we are feeling well, we enjoy the sanctity of our residences and the joy of being with our loved ones.
Home care keeps 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 prevents or postpones 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 promotes healing. There is abundant evidence that patients heal more quickly at home.
Home care allows a maximum amount of freedom for the individual. Hospitals and nursing homes offer more regimented, regulated environments. Home care offers a reassuring, individualized setting.
Home care is personalized care. Home care 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 reduces stress. Unlike most forms of health care which can increase anxiety and stress, home care frequently has the opposite effect.
Home care is one of the most effective forms of health care. There is very high consumer satisfaction associated with care delivered in the home.
Home care is an efficient form of health care. By bringing health services home, the patient does not generate board and room expenses. 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.
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.

We have shopped and experienced several Senior Care facilities, and it is always tough to find someone good enough for "your" parent(s). My Choice and Mella have finally put my mind at ease. Their daily logs allow me to check in without holds or confusing delays, they are willing to work with your special requests, and my father feels safe (cared for) in his environment. My Choice makes me (us) feel like we're part of one big family/community.

My Choice was very timely, and courteous, when dealing with my father. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family in the future! The staff treated us more like family, and sure helped to make the transition to home care easy, and stress free.

The customer service and communication I have received from My Choice have been nothing short of amazing. These times with parents can be tense and I have been so relieved to have My Choice tackling a majority of the stressors, so that I can enjoy my dad again.

Great company that provides in home senior care. What really stood out to me was how kind their staff was and willing to help with anything that needed to be done. They treat their clients as if it was their own family rather a number and this was proven by their strong ethics and character I’ve experienced throughout working with them.

Great owners, and staff! Very caring and compassionate when family needs!!

My father needed around the clock care after a serious heart attack, my family choose My Choice because of the great communication with the owners and the ability to reach them any time we needed to ask a question. I think this company goes above and beyond to take care of their clients and am happy my father is happy with his caregivers.

Used them for help with my mom and the caregivers were wonderful. Always on time and did extra every time they came. The owners are available 24/7 via an emergency contact phone and billing was always correct thanks to their clock in and out systems. Everyone in the office is very professional and pleasant to talk with when I called with a question. I highly recommend them for any family member.

Former employee here. This is a smaller than usual company that takes good care of their clients and employees. They strive to match the best fit for their clients and go above and beyond known needs. They earned 5 stars from my point of view. Would recommend as an employer and a provider!

"My Choice took a huge pressure off me, because I can get to my office on time. I no longer feel stressed about taking care of her. Thank you for all your help!"

"Our My Choice caregiver is a treasure. She brightens my mother’s day and is so helpful. She has de-cluttered whole rooms, planted daffodils, polished silver, cooked special recipes, picked up medications and been a jewel in every way."

"We laugh and talk about art and really enjoy being together. I look forward to her visits and am happy to get out and about. Bless you for finding my special friend."
