What is included in live-in care?
Live-in care involves a caregiver living in the same home as the individual needing care. They are there to assist with daily living activities, and they are able to accompany you or or loved one to appointments and social outings.
What is included in overnight care?
Overnight care is when a caregiver is able to be there a few hours before your loved one goes to bed, they sleepover and are available a few times during the night in case help is needed, and they are also there for a few hours in the morning. This ensures that care is provided during the night if needed. If your loved one does not need care during the day, but you prefer that a caregiver be there for them at night, overnight care may be the right fit for your needs.
Why Live-In or Overnight Care?
Around-the-clock care can be a preventative way to avoid a nursing home or readmission to a hospital or rehab facilities. In fact, two of the biggest reasons older adults transition to Assisted Living Facilities are a result of medication prompts and fall risk concerns. Around-the-clock care makes it possible for the elderly and people with special needs to live in their own home.
Can live-in caregivers assist in an independent living facility, nursing home, or other senior housing options?
Yes they can! Thanks to our TotalCare we can provide a caregiver to help wherever your loved one resides. This way you can be reassured that your loved one is receiving the care they need, and definite one-on-one attention as well, no matter the living situation.
