Home care is not a one size fits all experience. In order for your aging loved one to get the most benefit for your care efforts for them, it is important that you focus on customizing the experience and creating a care approach that is tailored to them as a whole individual rather than just as a person with generic needs. This type of approach not only helps to ensure that your parent's particular needs are met, but also encourages better mental and emotional health because they feel that they are being honored, respected, and listened to as they age in place.
