Residential care – should you choose to stay at home instead?

Staying at home instead of going in to a
#carehome is becoming a more popular option. Discovering that an
individual requires additional care support can be a distressing and
difficult time for all involved. Often when care needs are less
intensive however there are alternative options available, and
residential care can be delayed or could even become unnecessary.

The biggest question initially facing
individuals requiring care and their families often concerns the choice
between residential care, and remaining at home instead. Both have
advantages and disadvantages, and both have different financial
implications. This can make it difficult to choose which is going to be
best for you in the short and long term.

This article may help you to decide what best suits you..
