As you age it may be difficult to do everyday things. Things like basic chores, paying bills, and running errands can become a pain. However, that doesn't mean you have to give up your independence and livelihood by moving into an assisted living facility.
Here Are 2 Benefits To Aging In Your Home:
-More Cost Effective
According to the US Census Bureau, on average the cost of living in a semi-private facility in 2016 was $6,844 a month, (that's over $82,000 a year!).
Your Retirement years are supposed to be filled with living the life you want after working for so long, throwing all your hard-earned money into a facility when you are still fairly competent on your own is no way to live.
There are other resources that will help you with the little things you struggle with. Hiring in-home care that will visit you depending on your needs is more effective, both money-wise and life-wise!
Having care services visit you at home for a couple of hours can help you with chores, groceries, housekeeping, and more!
You've worked hard to obtain your house and belongings, it is your right to enjoy them! Staying in your home allows you to have your own privacy and be in a place you are most familiar with and comfortable with. Many living facilities have rules, like certain visiting hours, having to share a room and more limiting factors. Staying home will allow you to get the care you need while also keeping your independence.
