27 Oct 3 Important Benefits of At-Home Quality Care
For families with children who have disabilities or are medically fragile, type and level of care is often an important and ongoing discussion — and a common one at that. Over 28 million children in the United States have a disability, and according to the U.S. census, one in every 26 households have reported raising a child with a disability. For these individuals, long-term care services are often essential. In fact, by the year 2050,the 13 million people employing these services are estimated to double to 27 million. Long-term, compassionate care is often the best option for many families, and here are 3 reasons why:
Comprehensive and Compassionate Care
Medically vulnerable children require a certain level of care that is best met by professionals. Quality caregivers maintain and enhance the quality of life for both the children and families that receive their services.
Relief of Caregiver Stress
Parenting is difficult as is, but when your child has a chronic condition or disability, your role as parent suddenly doubles, as you turn into both a parent and a caretaker. For anyone, this is a great deal to take on. And as an individual with personal emotional needs, the stress of being a caregiver can take its toll. Enlisting in quality care as a means of support for your child can help you rest easy, knowing they are receiving the best home care possible and that you are working to be the best parent you can be.
Keeping Children at Home — Where They Should Be
Often times, sick and disabled children end up in nursing homes or hospitals where they are unable to be with their family. But it doesn’t need to be this way. Rather, in-home medical care allows sick and disabled children to receive the quality care they need without having to separate them from their loving family.
