The Benefits of Live-In Care

Live-in care is a comfortable solution that many families choose for their loved ones, who have lost their ability to live independently. This type of care has several benefits that make it a more viable option over traditional nursing homes or even assisted living facilities — let's review them.

Personalized Care

One of the most important features of live-in care is personalized care. This allows the caregiver and the client to maintain a close relationship, where all the attention is only given to one person. This is a significant benefit which puts live-in care to a significant advantage in comparison with settings where the caregivers must share their attention. The clients receive support that is adapted to their specific needs and wishes. This also allows them to receive help immediately and continuously.

Comfort of Home

Staying in the comfort of their own home is very important for individuals who suffer from conditions that affect cognitive abilities, such as dementia. This provides comfort and is highly beneficial to their mental health, as it prevents disorientation and maintains some sense of continuity.

Cost-Effectiveness

The price of live-in care can be even more affordable in comparison to residential care facilities such as nursing homes, especially for couples who need support. A recent survey showed that the average cost of a private room in a nursing home can be significantly higher than the cost of live-in care.

Family Involvement

Since live-in care is offered in the individual’s own home, they are less restricted by things such as visiting hours. This increases the family’s involvement in the care plan and even improves their relationship with their elderly individual since they can just enjoy their time together without the unnecessary stress of caretaking obligations. 

Companionship

Recent studies have shown that loneliness and isolation can significantly affect the physical and mental health of the individual. That is why activities such as watching movies, or simply engaging in regular conversation can improve the client’s quality of life. A live-in caregiver does more than help to execute tasks — they often become a friend and a shoulder to lean on. 

Live-in care is an option that many individuals choose as it allows them individuals to enjoy their time in comfort, surrounded by familiar settings with a trusted caregiver.
