Finding the right care for your loved ones is a process that’s as important as it can be difficult. Knowing which sort of care to look for, and how to begin broaching the topic can both be sensitive and emotionally-charged affairs.
One option which people are increasingly turning towards – one that takes all the positives of the various alternatives while leaving behind their inherent negatives – is 24-hour live-in care. With that in mind, we’ve listed below some of the main benefits of 24-hour live-in care.
Undoubtedly, one of the biggest pros to 24-hour live-in care is that it means your loved ones can continue living in familiar surroundings.
Relocating can be incredibly stressful for those people moving into residential homes; for many people, their home represents the last vestiges of their independent living.
This destabilising effect is even greater for those people suffering from degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s, for whom such relocations can prove irreversibly painful and damaging.
With 24-hour live-in care, you’re getting the benefits of personal, tailored care, all while in the comfort (and more importantly, the familiarity) of your own home.
With 24-hour live-in care, you’re getting a personal care assistant – someone specifically deemed to be best suited for the needs of the client in question.
By their very nature, care homes typically have to look after a large number of residents (whether residential or day) meaning that, no matter how high-quality the care, it can only ever become so personalised or tailored.
With live-in care, by contrast, you’re getting not only a carer but (if needs be) a friend, a confidant – a strong and structured relationship. Above everything else, live-in care provides consistency, a foundational factor known to be instrumental in the overall provision of good care.
The reasons discussed above are just two of the benefits of live-in care, others include (but are not limited to):
● The retaining independence.
● Greater support for families.
● Freer quality of life.
