Benefits of Live-In Home Care
Extra assistance to those who need it, specifically for the elderly, can be very beneficial. They get the help they need when they need it and can keep their independence. However, some cases require 24-hour care. This is when you should consider a live-in home care professional. The benefits of hiring a professional for live-in care include, but are not limited to:
- 24-Hour Care: Live-in home care professionals live with the patient. That means they are always there to help whenever it is needed. Care is not limited to 8 hours a day or only during daylight hours.
- Safety: Our caregivers take the safety of all our patients seriously. We will make every attempt to improve safety in the home. That can include fall prevention and being there in case of emergency.
- Health Status Reporting: Our health is constantly changing. Your family loves and cares about you and should be informed should there be any changes in your health status. Our home care assistants will inform your family should you experience some health status changes.
- One-on-One Attention: You are not confined to a healthcare facility where nurses have many patients that they must check on. This can make it seem like they do not care for you or do not understand you. Our live-in assistants are always there with you and only work with you. They will provide you with individualized care and build a connection with you. Do not become surprised if they become a good friend of yours as well.
Full-time care solutions can be staffed in many ways depending on the needs of your loved one. As shown below, there are four typical staffing solutions to address full-time coverage.
Regardless of the staffing solution, all 24-hour cases will include:
- Holistic Care: No matter the situation, all full-time care solutions are personalized to meet the physical, mental and spiritual needs of each client. Caregivers are then carefully selected to ensure clients attain the moments of dignity, joy, and well-being they deserve. We measure success in the Griswold Moments our care plans deliver every day.
