A home is more than just the house in which you reside in. More than just a shelter for yourself and your belongings, a home is the place in which you can come back from the stress of daily life and societal restrictions and simply relax. It’s the place where you can let loose and forget about entertaining any notions of small talk or other social norms. In simpler terms, home is a place to be yourself. So naturally, this may pose a problem for those who, due to injury or illness, may be in need of assistance around the home. While the thought of having just any person, who isn’t a friend or family, enter your personal space can have potential for some discomfort, it may be necessary in order to improve your situation. This, however, does not have to equate to a stressful experience.
