Cornerstone Home Health Care Services’ mission is to provide families with quality and affordable home health care services in the Southwest Florida area. They understand the daily demands of juggling work, home, and caring for the children and the elderly on a personal level. In fact, founder and owner Edwin Cordero’s experience in taking care of both his mom and sister is what inspired him to start his company nearly 20 years ago. Since then, Cornerstone has cared for thousands of children and adults with special needs and established itself as one of the leading providers of home health care services in Florida. 

Cornerstone believes that home health care is the best solution to help manage caregiving responsibilities while avoiding caregiver burnout. It gives additional support to the family and at the same time, allows their loved ones to stay in the comfort of their own home. 

Taking care of someone with special needs is a complicated and challenging task. Here are some of the reasons why hiring a professional caregiver at home might be a great choice for you and your loved ones. 

1. Familiarity and Comfort

In general, staying at home provides you with a sense of familiarity and comfort. Although some people choose to stay in assisted living facilities or retirement communities, many still prefer to stay in their homes because they are close to their friends, families, and loved ones. 

2. Faster Recovery

Studies have shown that the recovery process can be faster at home than in the hospital. This is especially true if the patient receives quality home health care services from a skilled and experienced caregiver. 

3. Treatment Involvement

One of the major benefits of choosing home health care is your personal involvement with your loved one’s treatment. You will be able to monitor their food intake, medications, and activities since they are staying at home. Your chosen caregiver will also be able to provide a personalized program to address your specific needs and special requirements. 

4. Flexibility

Home health care is flexible. You can choose only the services that you actually need rather than availing a full package from a nursing home or an assisted living facility. This can make care more personalized and cost-efficient for you or your family. 

5. Professional Assistance

Having a health professional by your side can make your life so much easier. Licensed, experienced caregivers have the necessary training to react to unexpected situations and unique conditions. They can also save your loved one’s life in the event of an emergency. 

6. Cost Saving

You can actually save a lot of money by choosing home health care services. Depending on the hours needed, having a caregiver at home is more affordable than staying in nursing homes and other similar facilities. In fact, the latest figures from Genworth show that the monthly median costs for a private room in a nursing home facility is about $8,800, while the average monthly costs for in-home care is estimated to be around $4,500 (a nearly 50% savings).
