There’s no place like home. We could all agree on that, including those who have Dementia. Yet, is a Victoria aged care service at home the right option? Should you choose it over an age care facility?
Dementia is the only and most common cause of disability in Australians aged 65 years old and above. The disability burden on families alone could be damaging emotionally and financially.
Dementia patients, whether they’re disabled or able-bodied, wouldn’t receive care services unless it’s a Victoria aged care service at home. According to an April 2015 study by Boston University, Dementia patients who receive aged care services including hospice care in their homes are more likely to be satisfied.
