There are significant differences between home health care and residential care facilities, the most important of which is that the latter requires the client to move to a new location while the former allows the clients to live in the comfort and privacy of their own home.
“Most people prefer to live in their own home,” says Shylo Director and Owner, Margot Ware. “We help make this dream a reality. Home Care is not a luxury reserved for the wealthy. The majority of our clients need only a few hours each day, and many only require care a few times a week or month.”
Contrary to what some may think, a client does not need to be seriously ill or recovering from an injury or operation to receive home health care. The range of care listed on the Shylo website is extensive, even covering family support when a new baby graces a family. Home services range from palliative and respite care, to help with family illness, to basic support for those who have difficulty managing in their home.
Because homecare only takes place during a part of the day, clients don’t lose any aspect of their independence. The professional staff of home support workers— each one thoroughly screened before being hired — is there to help so that a client’s sense of independence remains intact.
“We take the time to get to know each client so that we can match them with the right home support worker,” says Ware. “Every small request or quick review from the client is listened and adhered to.”
If you need care but want to remain in your home, home health care is definitely the way to go. Not only will you keep your independence, you’ll receive care from someone who is just right for you.
