Is A Live-In Senior Caregiver Really Worth It?

Is A Live-In Senior Caregiver Really Worth It?

It is possible to get a caregiver to live in the same home as a senior and provide care as necessary. But would such a move really be worth it? Who should arrange for live-in senior care and when?

What Is Live-In Senior Care?

Since you’re on this website, you probably already know that senior care is not only provided in senior care communities. Facilities such as nursing homes and assisted living communities are great for some seniors, but not so much for others. Some seniors don’t want to leave their homes; they’re comfortable and happy there. Others don’t want to have to pay the sometimes expensive rents and fees that senior care facilities charge. That’s why in-home care is so popular right now.

Caregivers can visit seniors in their own homes and provide them with personal care, companionship, homemaking services, and more. But what if a senior needs more than weekly, daily, or even twice-daily visits? What then? That’s when live-in senior care can help. When seniors need somebody on-hand to help in case of an emergency 24/7, they can arrange for a caregiver to live in their home with them.

How Does Live-In Senior Care Work?

Not every situation is appropriate for live-in senior care. First, you need to have the room. Live-in senior caregivers need their own rooms in which they can live and have privacy. They also need their own time and their own personal lives. Just because they live with their client does not mean they can work 24/7. Families often have to arrange a schedule when they can spend time with their elderly loved one and give the live-in senior caregiver time and days off.

Is Live-In Senior Care Expensive?

Because the live-in senior caregiver is living in the home with the senior and providing care for hours each day, live-in senior care is going to cost more than paying for a caregiver to visit once a week or even once a day. Having said that, live-in care is still often less expensive than moving into a senior care facility.

Is Live-In Senior Care Really Worth It?

To many people, live-in senior care seems like going to extreme lengths to avoid moving into a senior care community. But that’s not really fair. First, live-in senior care is hardly extreme. And second, if your elderly loved one really doesn’t want to move out, isn’t it worth making the effort to allow them to stay in their homes? If your elderly parent won’t be happy in a senior care community, you should really explore your live-in senior care options.

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.
Cindi E
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.
