What is Live-in Care?
Nine out of ten seniors report that they wish to age in place, at home. However, frailty, chronic illness or forgetfulness can make living alone too difficult. In these cases, live-in care allows your loved one to remain in the comfort of his or her home and maintain as much independence as possible while ensuring the highest level of safety. With full-time, around the clock care, a caregiver is always watching over your loved one, offering emotional support, reducing fall risk and assisting in all activities of daily living including:
|Cooking and light housekeeping|
|Laundry and change of bed linens|
|Grocery shopping and errands|
|Companionship and range of motion exercise|
|Bathing, dressing and grooming assistance|
|Transportation to doctor appointments, supermarket, pharmacy|
|Assisting with walking and transfer from bed to wheelchair|
|Status reporting to family|
Why choose Live-in Care?
If you’re looking for a comprehensive, cost efficient alternative to any type of facility, live-in care is the choice for you. The emotional strain associated with moving away from the familiarity and comfort of home often leads to physical decline, further loss of independence and diminished quality of life. Providing assistance with live-in care allows your loved one to remain in his or her home, promoting optimal emotional well-being. In addition, caregivers offer a much more personalized plan of care with one-to-one support tailored to the status, conditions, preferences, hobbies and lifestyle of the individual.
