Live-in Homecare

Choosing The Right Care for Your Loved One

Deciding what type of care your loved one requires can be a very difficult task. You have probably gone through questions such as do they need professional care? Nursing home or live-in carer? What are the costs?
We want to help you make that decision by giving you more information about live-in care and more specifically Affordable Live-in Homecare.
There are numerous reasons as to why people have chosen a live-in carer over nursing homes. Here are some of the most popular reasons:

1) Dedicated Care

Although Nursing Homes are staffed with care professionals, they simply are unable to offer the same level of attention a dedicated live-in care professional would. This is mainly due to the fact that Nursing Home staff have a responsibility for the wellbeing of many clients and are often on tight schedules to ensure they can get around to each person.
With a live-in caregiver from ALH, you can be sure that each caregiver is no less than 100% committed to your needs. This also allows those being cared for to build a warm, trusting and comfortable relationship with the caregiver.

2) Family time

This may seem like an obvious reason, but it is one of the most important pros of live-in care. There are several benefits in interacting with family for seniors. Not only can it alleviate the feeling of loneliness that many senior often feel but it can also provide a friendly environment where your loved one can feel independent and wanted.

3) Ease Financial Worries

When it comes to costs, live-in homecare can actually be less expensive for you and your family. Affordable Live-in homecare (ALH), offers not only competitive prices but also works to your budget and needs.
To give you an idea of the difference in costs, we have put together a cost comparison below.

4) Administration of Care

Should medical be required, it can be comforting to have someone you trust, whether it’s a family member or a family physician, treating your loved one. You will get to see first-hand the quality of care that your loved one is receiving and know that is done exactly how it should be. This can give you and your family a great sense of comfort and overall confidence.

5) Familiar Surroundings

If your loved one has Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia develops, familiar surroundings can create feelings of calm and a sense of control for your loved one. Moving to an entirely new place like a senior living community can be quite stressful and hard to handle for your loved one.
