Looking For A Live-In Caregiver For The Elderly? Here’s What You Need To Know

Looking For A Live-In Caregiver For The Elderly? Here's What You Need To Know

Are you looking for a live-in caregiver for an elderly loved one? Is that the best option for your senior parent? How does live-in care work? Here’s what you need to know.

Should You Be Looking For A Live-In Caregiver For The Elderly?

Home care companies deliver in-home care to elderly people, as well as younger people who live with disabilities, all over America. Some of this care is temporary, perhaps in response to a surgery or injury. Some of this care is comparatively minimal, such as help with household chores or even just visiting a senior once a week to keep them company. Many seniors need more involved care, though.

Personal care helps seniors with the Activities of Daily Living. These are things we must all do every day to take care of ourselves. Get out of bed, use the toilet, brush our teeth, go downstairs, make and eat breakfast, etc. Seniors who require assistance with these activities can benefit from personal caregivers visiting them in their homes. Caregivers can visit every day and even twice a day. But sometimes seniors need access to around-the-clock care. That’s when a live-in caregiver is necessary.

Can You Accommodate A Live-In Caregiver For Your Elderly Loved One?

For live-in care to work, you must have the right parameters. The live-in caregiver will need their own room and privacy. They also need their own free time. Many families arrange to visit their elderly loved ones on the live-in caregiver’s day off. The great benefit to live-in care is not just the extended hours of assistance, it’s the presence of caregivers in emergency situations. Live-in caregivers aren’t working at 2AM, but if your elderly loved one goes to the bathroom in the middle of the night and falls, you can avoid the horrible situation of them lying there all night because the caregiver is in the house and can help.

Should You Look For An Alternative To A Live-in Caregiver For Your Elderly Loved One?

When a senior parent’s needs reach the stage when they require live-in care, many families explore their senior living options. Good nursing homes and assisted living communities are able to provide the same services as live-in care, and these are great options for many seniors. But many seniors don’t want to move out of their own homes; they like it there. And while live-in care is the most expensive form of in-home care, it is often still cheaper than the rents and fees one pays to 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.
