Live-In Home Care is an option for you or a loved one that needs more help around the clock. Live-in care quite simply, is for an individual who wishes to remain independent in the comfort and familiarity of their own home, but requires a basic to complex nursing level of support to do so. Live-In Care is a cost effective alternative to a nursing home or assisted living facility. Safety is at the forefront of Ability Nursing’s philosophy and having an experienced caregiver in the home around the clock presents individuals in need with a tremendous tranquility for their well-being.
The referred caregiver can live in the home, provided that there is a separate bedroom. The cost of meals (or a meal allowance) are usually provided by you or your loved one or the caregiver can simply cook the meals and dine alongside. Full-time live-in care allows you or your loved one to enjoy an independent life in a safe and secure home environment. Many caregivers have a driver’s license and own a vehicle to accompany you or your loved one to appointments, shopping trips, and daily errands. Live-in support also recognizes you as an individual. It’s built entirely around specific needs, lifestyle and daily routines so that independence can be achieved. Live-in care for couples is also a popular option offered by Ability Nursing. In fact, many studies show that elderly couples do not want to separate when they need support and thrive on the security of a spouse. Due to this our referred caregivers play such a significant and essential role in ensuring partners stay together in a safe environment.
