Why Choose Personal Care Over Home Health Care?

Find out why choosing Assisted Living over Home Health Care is the best next step in your senior living journey.

What is Personal Care?

Personal Care (also known as Assisted Living) at Harmony Senior Services communities offers all the pleasures of a maintenance-free lifestyle with the extra support for life’s daily care needs. Choose from our spacious studio, one, and two-bedroom apartment options. Enjoy three delicious chef-prepared meals in our dining room every day. Get as much or as little assistance from our nurses and professionals as you need. And much more!

What is Home Health Care?

Home Health Care is when a caregiver is hired to come into your loved one’s home to help them with activities of daily living. Agencies providing this in-home care offer a range of different services from simple companionship to supervision and personal care. This allows seniors to age in their own homes.

Importance of Socialization

Socialization is so important throughout our lives, even more so as we age. If left isolated, there is a risk for loneliness and depression. Socialization is proven to play a role in living a healthier, longer life with fewer ailments. At Harmony Senior Services, our residents never have to be alone. Our monthly calendar of events and activities offers so much more than a way to pass the time. Residents and our Life Enrichment Director work together to create diverse, engaging, and stimulating opportunities for physical wellbeing, intellectual vigor, and pure fun. No more days alone at home at Harmony.

Cost Comparison

Throughout your life, you’ve probably been conservative in making most of your purchase decisions. It’s important to consider both affordable prices and optimum life satisfaction. Home Health Care will require the cost of the caregiver, your continued mortgage, property tax, and home maintenance payments, your personal care supplies, your groceries, housekeeping, and laundry, and so much more. In our Personal Care communities, your apartment and your care level are all you will be paying for. Everything else is included!

Continuum of Care

An important part of feeling confident in your senior living decision is the ability to age in place. Harmony Senior Services’ flexible options and multiple care levels enable us to respond to changing abilities and needs. We work with you and your family to create a personalized care plan that suits your needs. We ensure the quality of life, maximize independence, and peace of mind for the family in each of our care levels. And we cater to the whole person, meeting such needs as assistance with medications, scheduling healthcare appointments, or offering a friendly escort to meals and activities.
