What is Live-In Care?
At one point in life, we all may require some level of care. When you or a loved one need an increased level of care, remaining in the comfort of your own home is still an option. You might be the son or daughter who has been caring for mom or dad and things have just reached a point where you are overwhelmed and need a little help yourself. Around the clock non-medical care and having in-home help available means that an iAID Caregiver is available when needed, more importantly your loved one has the personal space and autonomy as if they were living alone.
FAQ About Live-In Care
Live-In Home Care is an option provided for families who find the need of around the clock care for a family member or loved one. However, Live-In home care services are not as well understood as assisted living or nursing home options.
Q: Are you worried about leaving a family member alone at night? Do you or a family member need the extra bedside care at night?
A: For those that spend the day caring for a family member, but are not able to stay a night or sleep over. Overnight care would be an option. An iAID caregiver would be assigned to accomadate for the need of being at home with you or your family member all night, ensuring that all needs are met meanwhile providing the necessary care should any complications or emergencies emerge at night. This service involves a caregiver assisting with a few hours of care before bed and after a good night’s rest. If you are assisting a loved one, you know that your health can be overwhelmed without a good nights rest. iAID Caregivers usually request that they receive a minimum of 8 hours of sleep, hence the cost of such service is less then care provided during the day. Having a caregiver in the home as your loved one sleeps gives peace of mind and sense of security while you rest, enabling you to wake up fresh and rested to go about your day.
Considering Live In Care or Overnight Care can also be a preventative way to avoid a nursing/senior home. Not having such care is the biggest reason older adults transition to Assisted Living Facilities. Not only will our Live-In and Overnight care give you that sense of comfort and security, but it will also provide medication prompting and help avoid any risks of falls. Around-the-clock care for the elderly is very possible at your own home and having access to a live in caregiver can reduce the factors that might lead to a nursing/senior home admission and their high costs.
A: When considering the Live-In care option, our Clients/Patients are usually unaware how broad of services a non-medical caregiver can provide. It is typical for clients who are researching Live-In care options to think they may require a Live-In nurse when most of the senior assistance needed is usually non-medical. Services provided by a non-medical (Live-In) Caregiver typically fall within the realm of a personal home care assistant, tending to a senior’s homemaking, and companionship needs. It is recommended for clients to consider having a Non-Medical caregiver scheduled for the basic activities of daily living opposed to having a higher priced Live-In Nurse present during the entire day. However, each client's case varies based on their health status and personal healthcare assessment.
