Nursing Home Alternatives: What’s The Best Option?

Recognizing the need for in-home assistance can be difficult and sometimes, stressful. Everyone is different. At Compassionate Assistance, we know that providing the best qualify of life to your loved one while also providing necessary care is a top priority. Many times, a nursing home is not the ideal option for either the person needing assistance or the family caring for them. Though a nursing home may be a good option in some bases, there are many nursing home alternatives to consider, and finding the best one will give you peace of mind and ensure your loved one is receiving the best care possible.

Preferred By Seniors:

Most seniors prefer to live at home as long as possible, with statistics showing that 80 percent of seniors receive in-home assistance or care. Most seniors prefer to receive care at home because it allows them to stay in a place where they are comfortable and in an environment where they are comfortable. Sometimes, having an in-home care provider allows seniors to be more open to the idea of having assistance. When someone is coming into their home to help with their schedule and way of doing things, it is less invasive than someone changing their environment and routine

Provides Reassurance To Families:

At Compassionate Assistance, we are committed to being on time, every time. We provide all of our clients with an access to the ClearCare app, where you can see which caregiver is scheduled as well as when they check in and out. It also provides updates on whether or not certain tasks have been completed.

This adds a personal touch to care. You will be familiar with the caregivers that will be providing for your loved one. In addition, you can check in on their schedule and activities. This ensures that the best care is being provided.


One-on-one companionship is an extremely important aspect in anyone’s life, but especially for seniors. One of the main causes for depression in seniors is due to lack of socialization. For many aging people, having someone just to talk to is an important part of their care. We take pride in becoming close companions with our clients and bringing happiness to their lives. This type of companionship may not be offered in larger facilities, such as nursing homes.

Our mission at Compassionate Assistance is to enable individuals to live independently and with dignity in their own home. We strive to do so by elevating the standard of in-home senior care.
