According to the Family Caregiver Alliance (FCA), over 8 million Americans rely on long-term elder care, with the majority of them (4.7 million people) opting for home health agencies instead of nursing homes and other residential care facilities.
One of the greatest benefits of in-home elderly care is that your caregiver can help you maintain a certain level of independence through various personal care services. Caregivers might perform housekeeping, errands, cooking, shopping, and assistance with dressing and grooming.
