Advantages and Disadvantages of Live-in Care
The main advantages of Having a Live-in Care Worker
Personalised and dedicated one -to- one care by a highly experienced and trained Care Worker, with a similar character and outlook on life.
Allows people to enjoy an entirely familiar surrounding, filled with their cherished possessions, by staying in their own property. A recent study( carried out by Consultas Care) reported that 97 % of those who responded would not want to move into a care home. Whilst residential care can offer a valuable service, most people prefer to stay in their own home when they can
Peace of mind for the client, their close friends and neighbours and members of the family that experienced and fully trained hands are available to help. Live-in care reduces the feelings of being isolated and also being lonely by offering companionship. A live-in care worker can strongly encourage and support the continued activities of interests and hobbies. Live-in care, living at home and the sense of continued independence has a positive impact on individual happiness, self-esteem, self-confidence and well- being.
A live-in care worker will help take care of a pet which could otherwise need to be rehoused.
A live-in carer means that a family member doesn't need to become a full -time care worker. Family members can be assured that their loved one is getting the ideal care and attention.
If travel and leisure is still possible, a full -time carer could accompany a client on a break.
Live-in carers will be matched according to expertise and experience which means they're specially qualified to manage and support Parkinson's Disease, dementia, strokes, MS or those requiring palliative care.
For couples, a live-in care worker can support both and allows partners to remain together. If one care worker can support both people, this also has a financial benefit compared to two sets of fees in a residential care home. This is particularly advantageous if one particular person has dementia or needs additional support that would mean living in separate residential care homes.
The Disadvantages of Having a Live-in Care Worker
Unless Of Course utilising an experienced company such as Total Living Care, determining the best care worker, who's fully trained and understands the requirements to deliver outstanding live-in care, could be a struggle.
Some people take pleasure in the social life of being in a residential care home, the relief of not having to handle their own house or responsibility of controlling their affairs. Letting go of some of their personal privacy, but taking pleasure in the opportunity to be continuously in contact with others.
Although a live-in carer cost is often a lesser amount than the cost ofa residential home, it's not cheap to have care workers available 24- hours a day, however, based on eligibility, personal budgets and direct payments mean it is possible for care to be state funded.
A live-in care worker will need a private room within the home
Not everyone is comfortable with having a unfamiliar person living in the house or perhaps they are used to living by themselves. Even Though in our experience, the care worker before long becomes a companion as opposed to a stranger, plus the support and help soon outweigh the desire to live by yourself, or even the alternative of a residential home.
Care workers require breaks and holidays and spend time with their loved ones, unless going through a company that offers a totally managed service, such as Total Living Care, it may be a issue to locate short- term cover.
