At some point in time, most families will need to provide care for a family member who is ill, aging, or disabled in the home setting. Sometimes, health problems are temporary. Other times one’s health problems, such as Alzheimer’s disease or a terminal illness, are difficult to manage and are long term.
If possible, one should care for a person who is ill, disabled, recovering from surgery or serious illness in his or her own home. Being in familiar surroundings can have a positive effect on a person’s sense of well-being, which can lead to a quicker recovery or, at least a better quality of life.
While home care giving can be beneficial, it takes careful planning, support, and patience.
