There’s No Place Like Homecare

June 2nd, 2011 by @lamberts

"No Place Like Homecare"If you’ve ever experienced or have a loved one experience the benefits of homecare, you already know how powerfully rewarding homecare truly is.  This blog is dedicated to you, the believers in the future of health care at home. We’ll delve into current issues affecting homecare beneficiaries and their caregivers, tools and techniques to keep your loved one more independent and safe, and ways to educate and empower you along your homecare journey.  Our goal of this blog is to be a resource for you, a place to find and connect with others sharing the homecare experience, and a vehicle to have your voice heard as thousands of us across the country stand up for homecare.

My name is Ashley, and I’m a homecare advocate.  I passionately believe in the value of homecare and dedicate my professional career towards protecting your right to receive it, for Congress to protect it, and for family-owned businesses like ours to continue providing this valuable service across the nation.  It’s what I want for my parents and eventually for my husband and myself.  I’m fortunate enough to work at Lambert’s where I can hear the stories of people who come in each day and give their testimony about how homecare has changed their lives. Maybe they’re a direct recipient of homecare services and no longer fear having to move into an institutional setting to get the care they need.  Maybe they’re a caregiver who has access to resources for the first time and learns they aren’t facing this alone.  Whatever the cause, it only takes one experience to convert someone into a homecare advocate.  It’s the final chapters of the American Dream.  It’s aging with dignity. It’s personal, it’s family, and it’s worth fighting for.

We welcome you to subscribe to our blog, provide comments on articles posted, and engage in a conversation about homecare.  So put on those ruby reds and repeat after me, “there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home…”

Thanks for commenting; we welcome all viewpoints. Homecare is a fantastic short- and long-term option for many Americans, and though there are some whose physical and/or mental conditions are better suited for a skilled facility, the significant majority can be served through home and community-based services. As many family caregivers can attest, it isn’t always easy, but homecare is very rewarding and results in a higher quality of life. In fact, numerous studies revel that homecare is patient preferred, more cost effective, and results in better clinical outcomes. I welcome you to check back with Homecare Advocate periodically as we explore these issues in greater depth and encourage other readers to share their experiences with homecare and caregiving.

Well please tell your cousin thanks for sharing us with people! One of the biggest challenges with homecare and caregiving is that many people feel isolated in their quest to find a workable solution to meet their family’s needs. We need more awareness and support for caregivers and homecare, which is why we started writing this blog. I’ve met countless caregivers who are privately struggling to find answers and who often feel very alone and without a proper network of like-minded people they can lean on and learn from. My desire is for this blog to help these people gain information and connect with others in similar situations across the country so that they know they are not alone, there are options, and there is hope. May this blog help serve you in some way as you deal with your family’s circumstances; best of luck, Brendan!
