All you need to know about Live in care

Elderly care is very important. As people get older, they become more prone to injuries and sickness and will require proper supervision to remain in good health. Usually, family members look after elderly relations, however in this day and age, with everyone working so hard, it is difficult to stay at home to look after them. Therefore, the senior or the family that loves them must then decide what must be done - if they should move to a retirement or nursing home or need a form of assisted living or home care.

Seniors very much prefer to stay in their own home, where they have accumulated memories over the years, rather than moving to a nursing or retirement home. For seniors to be able to stay at home, an option to hire a caregiver to provide live in care is attractive. This means that the senior can remain in his or her own home rather than going to a nursing or retirement home.

Live in care is perfect for your loved one, as if they need support, they can be provided through visits from hourly caregivers employed by a home care agency. These caregivers will be able to deal with the upkeep of the house, help with shopping and meal preparation, hygiene and provide full time assistance with daily living.

If the senior has some medical needs, then live in care can allow them to remain in the comfort of their own home. A registered nurse can supervise an aide providing the service and develop a detailed plan of care, medical appointments and a medication regime. Both live in care aide and nurse supervisor can be employed and managed by a professional agency.

Before selecting an aide, it is best to think about the senior’s outlook on life, habits, personality, cultural background and other characteristics. This way, the agency will be able to select a caregiver whose temperament is similar or compatible with that of the senior. This will mean that they will be able to relate to each other, making it bearable for both parties.

With live in care aides, people can provide adequate support to elderly members of their family. As a live in care aide stays 24-7 in your home, then everything that the senior needs will be taken care of.
