LOOKING FOR A LIVE-IN CAREGIVER FOR YOUR ELDERLY LOVED ONE?
Our live-in caregiving service is much less disruptive than 24/7 shift care, because one caregiver is continuously living in the home. This can be highly beneficial service for many situations, and is more economical than 24/7 coverage. Over 90% of people would prefer to remain in their homes rather than go to a senior living or health care facility. With Home Helpers Home Care, this can be a reality.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 24-HOUR & LIVE-IN CARE
Although they might seem like the same service, there is a distinct difference between 24-Hour Shift Care and Live-In Care. There are different reasons for choosing each one, depending on what kind of care services are need.
24-Hour Shift Care
This care will be provided throughout the day by multiple Caregivers, covering various shifts. Generally this would not be the case, but any gaps in care, that might occur would be discussed with the family, and a schedule and plan would be implemented to accommodate the clients’ unique needs. There is no need to provide sleeping or living quarters for Caregivers. For our caregivers, overnight shifts are awake shifts.
This care option is where one of our specialized Caregivers resides in the home with the client. Live-in caregivers deliver services during the daytime to evening hours following an agreed-upon schedule. Occasionally, they may be called upon to assist during overnight hours, which are considered downtime for the employee. Live-in caregivers are compensated hourly, so should a disruption occur to their downtime, they are paid accordingly, and clients are billed. They will be there in case of an emergency and will work out a schedule to accommodate the client's needs. Therefore, Live-in Service is not truly 24-hour "eyes on" care coverage.
In this Care Plan, the Caregiver will receive regular breaks and meal periods and time for sleep. Some of these breaks will be regulated by the state to help ensure the health and safety of the Caregiver. This option requires separate living quarters for the Caregiver.
