How Does Live-In Senior Care Work?

How Does Live-In Senior Care Work?

If you or an elderly loved one requires around-the-clock access to care, but you don’t like the idea of a long-term care facility, you should consider live-in senior care.

What Is Live-In Senior Care?

Live-in senior care describes a scenario in which a senior’s caregiver lives with them in their own private home. Many seniors would rather live in their own home than a senior living facility. Most people who receive in-home senior care are visited by caregivers weekly, daily, or even multiple times a day. But some seniors need more than this intermittent assistance. To really be safe, they need somebody to always be around. For them, there’s live-in senior care.

With a caregiver living in a senior’s home with them, they can provide hours of uninterrupted care and will be present for any emergency situation. These caregivers can help seniors start their day, end their day, and with anything in between. Some seniors require live-in senior care indefinitely while others only need it for a temporary period of time, such as when recovering from an injury, surgery, or from post-hospitalization Covid-19.

Who Are These Live-In Senior Caregivers?

Live-in care requires a great deal of trust. Inviting a relative stranger to live with you can be scary. That’s why it’s imperative that you only deal with trusted healthcare agencies. At Executive Care, all our caregivers are employees, not third-party contractors. To work for us, caregivers must pass an intensive pre-employment screening process.

This screening includes a criminal background check and a verification of references and work history. All our caregivers are subject to all state and federal health requirements. Our caregivers are also bonded and insured, are closely supervised, skills tested, and they undergo continuing education and training. Given all these checks and qualifications, you can trust our caregivers to provide live-in care to you or your elderly loved one.

How Does Live-In Senior Care Work?

To receive live-in care, clients’ homes must meet certain criteria. They can’t live in a bachelor apartment, for example. Live-in caregivers need their own room, as well as privacy and time off. Live-in care requires negotiating a proper work schedule with clearly defined time off.

Many families arrange for family members or friends to look after the care recipient during the times when the live-in caregiver is off duty. Furthermore, because live-in care is the most extensive form of in-home care, live-in care is the most expensive form of in-home care. Having said that, live-in care is still often comparable to, if not cheaper than, moving into a senior living community.

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.
