What Are The Benefits Of A Live-In Companion For The Elderly?

What Are The Benefits Of A Live-In Companion For The Elderly?

Securing a live-in companion for your elderly loved one might seem unorthodox to some, but there are actually many benefits to doing so. How might a live-in companion help you or your elderly loved one?

Live-In Companions For The Elderly Offer An Alternative To Senior Living Communities.

A live-in companion is pretty much what the name suggests. Many elderly people (or younger people who live with disabilities) cannot manage their lives or take care of themselves all on their own. They require help. Sometimes this help is as simple as a caregiver visiting them in home two or three times a week. But many elderly need much more assistance than that. They require around-the-clock access to care.

At this point, you have two options: move into a senior living community or secure a live-in companion. You need the right set-up for a live-in companion to work. You need an extra room and you need to allot the caregiver the proper amount of personal space and free time. This sounds extravagant to some, but when you break down the costs, live-in companionship is often competitive and can even be cheaper than moving to a senior living community. Lastly, many elderly people don’t want to leave their homes. Having a live-in companion means they don’t have to.

How Live-In Companions Provide The Elderly With Personal Care And Homemaking Services?

On the Executive Care website you can read about the “Activities of Daily Living”. This is a term we use to describe all the tasks we each must do every day to take care of ourselves. Bathing, eating, using the toilet, showering, brushing our teeth, etc. But many elderly people cannot do these tasks alone and require personal care from a caregiver. Live-in companions can provide this care and they can also assist in an emergency at any time. They can also take care of everyday chores such as cleaning and running errands by providing homemaking services.

Live-In Companions Provide The Elderly With Companionship.

Elderly people live in isolation at higher rates than younger demographics. Removed from family, friends, and coworkers, they can get lonely and depressed and depression can wreak a terrible toll. Companion care involves caregiver keeping elderly people company. They can encourage them to get outside, to contact friends and family, and to exercise their mental faculties. Some elderly receive these same benefits in a senior living community. But it should be said, right now during the COVID-19 pandemic, many senior communities are unsafe. Live-in companionship is probably the better choice.

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.

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.
