Quality Home Care in Guildford

For relatives and friends of older people, it can be easy to suggest that they need help – particularly if they live alone. And that help will always be well-meaning, but it may not be the best kind of help for them. Going into a care home will be perfect for some people, but for others, it could be the worst thing for them. This is why home care in Guildford can provide the ideal alternative, allowing the elderly to stay in the home that they love, whilst also ensuring that they get the care they need. Why do older people want to stay at home?

Memories
Often, an older person will have lived in their home for many, many years. Unlike younger generations who move around a lot, switching properties every few years, older generations tend to stay in one place – possibly even living in one house since they got married. So asking them to leave the one home they have known, the place they lived with their spouse, the place they raised their children, can be a difficult thing for them – impossible in some cases. It can even make them unwell. Home care Guildford means that they can stay where their memories are, and enjoy them, whilst still getting all the help they need.

Inheritance
The other main reason that older people want to stay in their homes is that they want to leave the property to their children, or other relatives. Going into a care home might mean that it has to be sold earlier than they would like, or that their heirs can’t take it on. Staying at home with home care Guildford to take care of all essential needs such as washing, dressing, cooking, even dog walking… it can change everything for the better, and put everyone’s minds at ease.
