24 Hour Live-in Care Short / Long Term

24 Hour Live-in Care Short / Long Term

The Challenge

Availability of 24-Hour Live-In Support:
Finding a provider or caregiver who can offer 24-hour live-in support can be challenging. Not all agencies or caregivers may have the availability or resources to provide round-the-clock care and supervision in a home setting.

Qualified and Trained Caregivers:
Securing qualified and trained caregivers for 24-hour live-in support can be difficult. Caregivers need to possess the necessary skills, experience, and expertise to provide basic care and high care, depending on the individual's specific needs and medical requirements.

Compatibility and Personalization:
Ensuring compatibility between the caregiver and the individual receiving care is crucial for a positive and successful live-in support arrangement. Additionally, tailoring the live-in support to the specific requirements of different situations, such as care for people returning home post-surgery, care for the elderly, or care for individuals with chronic diseases, can be complex due to the varying demands and considerations of each scenario.

Care Continuity and Shifts:
Maintaining care continuity throughout a seven-day X 24-hour live-in support can be challenging due to the need for caregivers to take regular breaks and rest periods. Coordinating shifts and ensuring smooth transitions between caregivers while maintaining consistency in care can be demanding.

Safety and Emergency Preparedness:
Ensuring the safety and well-being of the individual during 24-hour live-in support is of utmost importance. Addressing potential safety risks, having emergency protocols in place, and ensuring that caregivers are capable of handling emergency situations effectively are crucial challenges to address.

Decision-Making Considerations:
Choosing between keeping a loved one in their own home or placing them into a residential care facility is a significant decision. Several factors come into play, including the level of care needed, the individual's preference and comfort, the available support network, financial considerations, and the ability to provide a safe and suitable home environment.

Home vs. Residential Care Facilities:
When deciding between keeping a loved one in their own home or placing them into a residential care facility, individuals often grapple with considerations such as:

Familiarity and Comfort: Many individuals prefer to remain in the familiarity and comfort of their own homes, surrounded by their possessions, memories, and a sense of independence.

Support Network: The availability of a strong support network, including family members, friends, and neighbours who can provide assistance and companionship, can be a significant factor in favor of keeping a loved one at home.

Level of Care and Safety: Assessing the level of care required and whether it can be adequately provided at home. Residential care facilities may offer specialized services, advanced medical equipment, and a higher level of supervision that can address complex care needs and ensure safety.

Financial Considerations: Evaluating the financial aspects of live-in support at home versus residential care facilities, including costs of hiring caregivers, modifying the home for accessibility, and comparing them to the fees associated with residential care facilities.

Emotional Impact: Considering the emotional impact on both the individual and their family members when deciding between home care and residential facilities. Emotional well-being, comfort, and quality of life should be carefully weighed.

What is 24-Hour Live-in Home Care?

Live-In Home Care helps individuals and couples who wish to be supported in their own home maintain their independence in familiar surroundings. Expect to select your own care support staff who best suit your needs. Clients and their families can have peace of mind with reliable live-in support delivered by experienced, discrete and qualified staff. Areas of concern can be monitored and actively mitigated including loneliness, personal hygiene, consistent medication intake, balanced nutrition and more. Clients can choose to have their family linked-in by inviting them to access care notes and staff rosters remotely via a dedicated client portal.

24-Hour Live-In Home Care is provided by a single carer over a 24-hour period with the carer sleeping over.

What is 24-Hour Live-in Home Care?
What is 24-Hour Active Home Care?

What is 24-Hour Active Home Care?

Frailty, chronic illness, a disability can make living alone too difficult or unsafe. Residential facility care is a viable option where it is not cost effective or where in-home staff are unavailable to provide at home care. Where care support can be provided at home, live-in care allows your loved one to remain in the comfort of his or her home and maintain as much independence as possible while ensuring care support needs are met.

24-Hour Active In-Home Care is provided by 2 or 3 carers over a 24-hour period. This category of care support is appropriate where active overnight support is required.
