According to the AARP, seniors and the elderly are clamoring to stay in their homes and live independently. In an AARP study 90% of adults age 65 and over prefer to live independently and stay in their own homes as they age — and do not want go to into a nursing home or other assisted living facility. Comfort Keepers® has been working for many years to help seniors by providing the highest quality at home health care in Southbury and nearby communities.
What is live in care?
Live-in care is just what it sounds like. One caregiver covers 24 hours of in home senior care. That caregiver works and sleeps in the senior’s home, making them available around the clock when most caregivers are not working. A separate bedroom must be available for the live in caregivers use.
“This service is a way for seniors to have continual services, and it allows for a lower cost of care. It can be a lifesaver for some folks, said Mark McGoldrick,” the local Comfort Keeper owners.
The caregiver is scheduled to be in the home for 24 hours. Sleeping times and breaks are provided for the caregiver. Each care plan developed for the senior is customized, and that plan guides whether someone covers when the live in caregiver is on planed breaks.
The live in care Southbury ct service provides peace of mind to family members and the senior that is receiving the care. Should a senior need help during the night, the local caregiver is there to help and help is always on hand.
The caregiver usually works 4 or 5 days a week, and when that person is not in the home, another caregiver is scheduled to cover the time and duties.
