What is live-in care?

Live-in care is an increasingly popular form of home care for seniors and people with disabilities. It involves a caregiver who lives with the client and provides round-the-clock, personalized care and support. This arrangement allows individuals to remain in their own homes while receiving the care they need, giving them greater independence and comfort.

Live-in caregivers provide a wide range of services to their clients, including assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting. They also help with instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) such as meal preparation, light housekeeping, transportation, medication management, and monitoring health conditions. Live-in caregivers offer companionship and emotional support as well, participating in activities and hobbies that their clients enjoy.

The benefits of live-in care

One of the primary benefits of live-in care is the personalised attention that clients receive. Caregivers can tailor their support to meet the specific needs and preferences of their clients, whether that involves assistance with physical tasks or emotional support and conversation. This level of individualised care can be difficult to find in institutional settings like nursing homes or assisted living facilities. Live-in care provides a much more personal and responsive approach to care.

Live-in care is also often less expensive than institutional care, especially in areas where the cost of living is high. This is because caregivers are able to provide one-on-one attention to their clients, which can limit the need for high-cost services like hospitalisations and emergency care. Additionally, live-in care avoids many of the expenses associated with institutional care, such as administrative costs and facility maintenance.
