More seniors are now choosing home care services rather than moving into a nursing home or assisted living facility. A fall or an acute illness is all too common for seniors. After being discharged from a rehabilitation center or hospital, seniors find the sight of familiar surroundings improves morale and can often shorten their recovery time. In addition, home care has become a more affordable and desirable option for South Florida seniors. Often clients love where they live, their home, friends, clubhouse and local activities, but just can’t manage on their own anymore. La Nurse Home Care Registry can help! At home, a client will have the one on one attention they need with a caregiver to help with their daily routine, while remaining in their familiar surroundings and continuing to do the activities they love. If you or your loved one prefers to lead their life in their own home as opposed to transitioning to a nursing home or assisted living facility, a caregiver referred by La Nurse Home Care Registry will certainly be a valuable resource to help with everyday activities and quality of life.
La Nurse Home Care Registry can also refer caregivers for care in the hospital, nursing home, rehabilitation center, and assisted living facility.
