A little help from your favorite Philadelphia home care agency.
Since the rise of the home care industry, home care has now been added to a list of services that are available to the injured, disabled, and/or aging population. But what are the advantages of home care and why should it be seriously considered? Here are a few reasons:
1. Home care is cost-effective.
With no room and board costs compared to nursing homes, rehab centers, or other care settings, this fact alone makes home care a cost-effective health care service for those that need it the most. Now, in the state of Pennsylvania, waivers are available that make the services accessible to those on Medicaid with no out of pocket costs.
2. Home care promotes healing.
Studies have shown that patients recover faster in their homes as opposed to rehab centers or other care institutions. It is easier for your body to heal in the peace and comfort of your own home, than have to adjust to a whole new environment to allow your body to heal. 
3. Home care offers tailored services that can better meet the client's health and financial needs.
