Live-In Home Care
What Is Live-In Care?
Living at home is an important way to ensure dignity and quality of life for seniors and adults with disabilities. Live-in care makes this possible by providing consistent, continuous care services tailored to your situation. In a live-in care arrangement, compassionate caregivers give your loved one the support they need to remain in familiar, comfortable surroundings as they receive ongoing care from a single caregiver.
Live-in care is a desirable alternative to an assisted living facility because it allows your loved one to receive the highest quality care and personalized attention in the comfort of their own home. Whether you or your loved one need live-in care for a few weeks after a surgery or on an ongoing basis, you can be confident that you will feel comfortable and safe with Cherished Companions.
How Live-In Care Benefits Your Loved One
With live-in care, a caregiver will live in the home providing assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, eating, companionship, meal preparation, and light housekeeping. Your loved one has access to assistance around the clock in the comfort of home.
Specialized caregivers can provide live-in care for people with a wide range of care needs:
- Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care – Caregivers will help your loved one age with dignity and will assist with the particular needs of Alzheimer’s and dementia, including fall prevention, wandering prevention, safety, memory stimulation activities, help with activities of daily living, and more.
- Disabled Adults Care – Adults with disabilities deserve to enjoy the best possible quality of life at home. Caregivers will assist with daily personal care, physical activity, cooking, homemaking, and other care needs.
- Post-Surgery Care – Recovering from surgery can be a lengthy process, but recovery is less daunting at home than in a facility. Caregivers can support a healthy, safe recovery by assisting with personal care, homemaking, medication reminders, transportation, and companionship.
- Neuromuscular Disorder Care – Neuromuscular disorders such as multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), stroke, and Parkinson’s disease can gradually reduce your ability to care for yourself. Live-in caregivers provide continuous assistance with daily activities, personal care and hygiene, ambulation assistance, and fall prevention.
If your loved one needs supervision at night, overnight care may be the best option for you. In an overnight care arrangement, the caregiver will remain attentive to your loved one throughout the night and will be available to offer assistance as needed.
With 24-hour care, at least two caregivers will share caregiving responsibilities so that your loved one receives round-the-clock care and immediate attention. Day or night, you can rest assured that a caregiver is available to assist with ambulation, toileting, fall prevention, and other needs.
Live-in care services are designed to help you or your family member manage the activities of daily living so you can enjoy the highest possible quality of life and the comfort of knowing someone is available at all times. Live-in care services include:
- Homemaking and Meal Preparation
- Personal Assistance
- Bathing & Hygiene
- Transportation & Mobility Assistance
- Injury & Fall Prevention
