Live-In Home Care

A live-in caregiver resides in the client’s home and provides consistent assistance with daily functions. They are trained to take on tasks like bathing, eating & toileting so that your loved one can have a more comfortable life.

A live-in caretaker will reside at your loved one’s house for 24-hours every day of the week and be there when they need help performing their basic Activities of Daily Living or if they show any signs of distress. This is especially helpful because a live-in caregiver and the senior have a more personal bond. The caregiver knows the daily routine and is a consistent presence in the home.

Senior Services Unlimited is a private duty non medical home care agency designed to offer top quality services at affordable prices.  

Our caregivers are bonded, insured and carefully screened.  They are also members of The Family Care Safety Registry.   We have been providing assistance to seniors since 1987.

What is Live-In Home Care?

At Senior Services Unlimited, our Live-In Home Care services support the many details of everyday living:

  • Personal Care – Our caregivers assist with all personal care such as grooming, bathing, eating, dressing, and toileting.
  • Companion Care – As regular tasks become more difficult for your aging loved one, our caregivers can assist with cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping, & more.

The Benefits of Live-In Home Care

Seniors that opt for live-in caregivers benefit from the presence of someone with them day and night. This decision is perfect for those who want to remain in their own homes, as they enjoy having a caregiver around all day long. Live-ins get along well because there are no odd schedules or work hours – it’s just constant companionship!

  • Lower Rate:Typically, live-in home care is less expensive than hourly home care.
  • Easy Transitioning:When a senior is transitioning from hospital to home, a live-in caregiver makes the experience easier and less stressful by being available in the home 24/7.
  • Communication:The senior’s family enjoys talking to one caregiver when they call for updates about their loved one’s health.
  • Reliability:Live-in caregiver situations involve greater bonding between the care providers and their clients; they have in the past shown less turnover in caregivers than in live-out arrangements.

Live-In Home Care vs Hourly Home Care

When it comes to choosing in-home care for an elderly person, there are many options. Live-in and 24-hour caregivers may seem like the same terminology, but they vary in how much time is spent with the senior, depending on their care needs. Understanding these differences will help determine what type of live-in or hourly home care would be best suited for each individual’s circumstance.

24-Hour Home Care (Hourly Home Care)

  • To ensure the client is always taken care of, two or more caregivers take turns on shifts to be awake and available day and night.
  • A trusted and alert caregiver is always awake to care for your loved one. By rotating caregivers, they are able to stay alert and ready when new situations arise with a senior who wanders at night, needs toileting assistance at night, or may become confused and just need some company and reassurance.

 

Live-In Home Care

  • Live-in caregivers work around the clock to take care of their clients. The 8-hour break and sleeping bed is provided for them so they can rest when not working.
  • With two scheduled caregivers, your senior loved one will find a deeper sense of comfort. The heightened familiarity with the elderly’s favorite routines and moods helps to better manage dementia diagnoses as well.
  • Live-In Home Care may not be the best choice for the senior who needs assistance at night with toileting, wandering, or confusion. The caregiver must be able to sleep, take breaks, and rest.
