It has been proven that it is much less expensive to help an aged or medically disabled person in their own home, rather than to institutionalize them; assessing access such as ramps, and home health care works much better cost effectively; and importantly, allows the individual to have better quality of life remaining with family and friends in their own neighborhood for an extended period of time.
