Live-In Caregivers

 

Families seeking care for a loved one who needs round the clock oversight should consider a Live-In Caregiver. This arrangement is similar to the more commonly known “au pair” for a child. Instead of care for a child, this is care for an elder. Having a caregiver live in the home with the client can be a game changer in that all of the sudden, a competent, caring, and dedicated person is now in the home to handle all client care needs as they arise. This lifts a major weight off the shoulders of the adult children and ensures your loved one is safe and well cared for at all times.

 

Live-in caregivers rapidly learn the patterns, likes/dislikes, and preferences of their client and a close relationship develops. The benefits of the Live-in caregiver’s knowledge are numerous, and the list goes on and on. Families gain a liaison for communicating status changes on how Mom or Dad are doing. Communication with a Live-in caregiver is at the frequency the family is most comfortable with.

 

The symbiotic relationship that forms is usually long lasting. Clients who hire Live-in caregivers are generally healthy enough to stay home, but just need a bit of extra care and companionship to stay safe in their home environment. Long periods of time alone pose a safety risk to many seniors, the Live-in caregiver ensures help is never more than a few steps away. Safety and security are improved as well was eliminating the extended periods of social isolation so many seniors face. The Live-in caregiver is ever present.

 

Benefits are not all one-sided, as the caregiver also benefits by having a roof over their head and a steady source of income. Live-ins fulfill many of the needs on Maslow’s Hierarchy Pyramid on both sides of the equation.

 

Last but not least, the value of a Live-in is apparent in the costs which are only a fraction of what it would cost to have round-the-clock care staffed with hourly shift workers. The savings are real, as too are the benefits for all parties involved!
