Homecare or Care Home?

Making the right choice

Going through all the options for the first time may be a bit daunting. At Optalis, we believe that your loved one will receive many more benefits from being able to stay in their own home, or the family home. 

The below table quickly and clearly outlines some reasons why choosing the homecare option can be the better option:

Homecare Care Home
Remain in comfort of your own home Uprooted/relocated to unfamiliar surroundings
One-to-one care and support Responsibility shared between many carers
Lifestyle and routine of customer is kept Disruption to routine
Choice of meal times and what you eat Set mealtimes and menu
Pets can stay living at home Risk of pets not being allowed
For couples: significant savings can be made For couples: cost of two beds
