When (and Why) You Should Consider Live-in Care Services

Live-in Care Services

Many seniors can live full, enriching lives with only a modicum of care and supervision. Some seniors don’t need any professional care at all. But there are also a lot of seniors who have a condition that requires a lot of care. There are also people who live with disabilities who require a lot of care. In some cases, around the clock care and supervision are required. What options do these people have? Must they move into an assisted living facility or have they another option?

Assisted living facilities

Assisted living facilities are places where people, mostly seniors (but not entirely) can live and receive the care and supervision they need to be healthy and safe. Some of these facilities offer a great deal of independence and others offer more intense care. Many of them are great and very well run; some of them aren’t.

But even the best assisted living facility still requires its residents to leave where they already live in order to move into the facility and get care. And a lot of people don’t want to leave their homes. If you’ve just realized or been told that you require around the clock care, that’s a lot to deal with. Do you really want to add moving out on top of that? Especially for seniors who may have spent decades in their beloved homes by now? No, of course not. But what’s the other option?

Live-in care service

The other option is live-in care service. Live-in care service sees a trusted, trained, fully qualified care provider move into the home of a client who requires around the clock care and supervision. With live-in care service, a care provider is always available for getting into and out of bed, to prepare early or late meals, and is there should an emergency situation arise in the middle of the night.

But isn’t live-in care service really expensive?

Live-in care service sounds great, but you might well be thinking it must be really expensive. Of course, live-in care service is more expensive than other types of home care services that only require a care worker to visit the client periodically throughout the week. After all, you now have a care worker essentially on retainer 24 hours a day. However, when compared with most assisted living facilities and nursing homes, hiring a live-in care worker is actually significantly less expensive.

Think about it: with live-in care service, you have to pay the wages of one care worker, albeit for many, many hours. But you don’t have to rent a room or unit as you would in an assisted living facility. Nor would you have to pay to cover the overhead for a whole host of other care workers, nurses, and equipment. Given all that, for many seniors and people with disabilities who require a great amount of care and supervision, hiring a live-in care worker is not only the best decision for their emotional and mental well being but also the best decision for their finances, as well.

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.
