When a loved one is aging and has an acute or chronic illness, it is critical that they receive appropriate nutrition, medication, rest,
and supervision. For many people, home care can help loved ones maintain their level of wellness for a longer period of time.
In fact, research shows that home care services can improve clients' ability to walk or move around, get in and out of bed, endure less
pain when moving around, improve bladder control, get better at bathing, are short of breath less often, and need less urgent unplanned
medical care in general.
Research has also proven that even for those living with chronic illness or disability, living at home is often the best option for
physical and mental well being. It can be difficult to quantify the advantages of companionship for someone needing home care, but
research indicates that social isolation can do as much harm to someone's health as smoking.

Home care services can be beneficial when a family member has serious medical needs and loved ones need to work or enjoy some time away
from care giving responsibilities. Daisy a Day Home Care staff can help caregivers avoid missing family time, children's activities and
