Paid In-Home Care: More Care & Better Care for Seniors (PDF 1 MB)

The reason for this may be that the use of paid in-home care results in more hours of care – and presumably better care – for older adults. What's more, the benefits of paid in-home care extend not just to seniors, but also to the people who most often are caring for them: their family members and friends.
