Live-in Care For Seniors

Live-In Home Care is an option for families who need more care, however, live-in home care services are not as well understood as assisted living or nursing home options. When considering non-medical 24-hour live-in help, we know you have a lot of questions. First, the referred caregiver can live in the home, provided that there is a separate bedroom. There are no additional charges for room and board for live-in care, but the cost of meals (or a meal stipend) are usually provided by the family or the referred caregiver can simply cook the meals for the client and dine alongside the family. Many caregivers have a driver’s license and own their own car to accompany your loved one to appointments and go grocery shopping. If you prefer, a caregiver can drive your car or theirs.

When considering the live-in care option, our clients are usually unaware how broad of services a non-medical caregiver can provide. It is typical for clients who are researching live-in care options to think they need a live-in nurse when most of the senior assistance needed is likely non-medical in-home senior care. These duties usually fall within the realm of a personal care assistant, tending to a senior’s homemaking, and companionship needs. Clients should consider having a non-medical caregiver / personal care aide scheduled for the basic activities of daily living versus having a higher priced live-in nurse present during the entire day.

Why Live-In or Overnight Care?

Providing your loved ones with around-the-clock non-medical home care can also be a preventative way to avoid a nursing home. In fact, two of the biggest reasons older adults transition to Assisted Living Facilities are a result of medication prompts and fall risk concerns. It’s very possible to have 24-hour home care for the elderly in your own home. Having access to live-in help or a referred overnight caregiver can reduce the factors that might lead to a nursing home admission. YEHS We Care elder care services offer you a wide range of options to help your loved one when they need it most.
