Benefits of The Homecare at New Glarus Home
New Glarus Home is a premier retirement community hidden in the hillsides of southern Wisconsin in "America's Little Switzerland." Our community offers a full continuum of healthcare and supportive services as you transition from one phase of life to another. With a sprawling campus comprised of independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing services, the pandemic had us looking 'outside of the box' to find the best ways we could expand our services and reach more people within our community. It felt natural that we would expand our offerings to provide supportive care in your home.
We know you want to stay in your own home as long as possible. The AHRQ estimates that each year, somewhere between 700,000 and 1,000,000 people in the United States fall in the hospital. Research shows that close to one third of these falls can be prevented. There is growing evidence to suggest that an ill person is less likely to suffer a serious event at home compared to a hospital setting. We believe that in certain situations, it may be appropriate for you to heal and rehabilitate in your own home. Homecare can also reduce the rate of hospital readmission.
Maybe you don't need a skilled professional. Perhaps you need some assistance with housekeeping, meal preparation, or some light personal care. Our Homecare aides can lighten your burden and make these tasks enjoyable. Having help in your home may reduce your risk of falls and/or injury.
Caring for your loved one can be stressful. And needing the care and assistance of loved ones can be difficult to accept, and leave you feeling guilty. By hiring an at-home caregiver, you and your loved ones can find the respite you need to avoid caregiver burnout.
Home care is safe, effective and can help you stay in your home longer. Please visit www.nghome.org/the-homecare or call (608)636-2424 for more information!
