5 FAQs about Live-In Senior Caregivers

5 FAQs about Live-In Senior Caregivers

 

Live-in senior caregivers are a crucial part of the care for many seniors across America. Many seniors require care but they either don’t want to move into a senior care facility, or it’s not practical for them. That is why in-home care exists: so seniors can get all the care they need delivered to them in their own homes. But what if a senior needs a lot of care? Access to care 24/7? Surely, they need to move into a senior care facility, right? Not necessarily. For such seniors, there is live-in care. Live in-care is provided by live-in senior caregivers and how it works is a little confusing for many seniors in their families. This article seeks to help. Here are five frequently asked questions about live-in senior caregivers.

1. Who Are Live-in Senior Caregivers?

Live-in senior caregivers are just like the other caregivers that Executive Care employs, except they are able to relocate to the homes of their clients to provide care whenever needed. All live-in senior caregivers must pass a rigorous pre-employment process to work for Executive Care, including a criminal background check and employment history review. All live-in senior caregivers are trained and skilled at what they do and they undergo periodic performance assessments and continuing education. At Executive Care, we work hard to find the right live-in senior caregiver for the right client.

2. What Care Can Live-in Senior Caregivers Provide?

Live-in senior caregivers can provide all the care that other in-home caregivers provide. This includes personal care, which involves helping clients with the Activities of Daily Living. These activities are things we must all do every day to take care of ourselves, such as brushing our teeth, bathing, getting around, eating, and using the toilet. Live-in senior caregivers also provide companionship services where they attend to the mental and emotional needs of clients. Lastly, live-in senior caregivers make life easier for seniors by providing homemaking services such as dusting, vacuuming, cleaning, and running errands.

3. What Do You Need To Support A Live-in Senior Caregiver?

Your home or the home of your senior loved one needs to be big enough to house a live-in senior caregiver. They need their own room and access to their own space. Also, while live-in senior caregivers can be on hand at any given moment to help their clients, they can’t actually work 24/7; they need time off like anybody else. Executive Care works closely with our clients and live-in senior caregivers to create a detailed schedule that works for everybody involved.

4. Is Live-in Senior Care Really Expensive?

Clearly, procuring the services of a live-in senior caregiver will cost more than other caregivers. Being on hand to help all of the time will obviously cost more than having a caregiver come by twice a week to help with errands and chores. That said, senior living facilities can also be quite expensive. You have to pay rent and other fees to keep the facility going. Because of this, live-in senior care is not significantly more expensive than the alternative and is sometimes even cheaper.

5. Are Live-in Senior Care Services Available In All Fifty States?

No. Not all live-in senior care services are available in every state.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
