Advantages and Disadvantages of Live-in Care
The Advantages of Having a Live-in Care Worker
Personalised and committed one -to- one care by a highly trained and experienced Care Worker, with a similar personality and outlook on life.
Allows people to enjoy an absolutely familiar surrounding, filled with their cherished possessions, by remaining in their own home. A recent survey( carried out by Consultas Care) reported that 97 Percent of individuals who responded would not want to move into a care home. Whilst residential care can offer an invaluable service, most people prefer to stay in their own home when they can
Reassurance 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 decreases the feelings of being isolated as well as being lonely by providing companionship. A live-in care worker can encourage and support the continued activities of interests and hobbies. Live-in care, being at home and the sense of ongoing independence has a positive influence on individual happiness, self-esteem, self-confidence and well- being.
A live-in care worker will help care for a pet which could otherwise have to be rehoused.
A live-in carer means that a family member does not need to become a full -time care worker. Members of the family can be assured that their loved one gets the very best care.
If travel remains a possibility, a full -time carer could accompany a client on holiday.
Live-in carers will be matched in accordance with expertise and experience meaning they're specifically trained to manage and support Parkinson's Disease, dementia, strokes, MS or those requiring palliative care.
For couples, a live-in care worker is capable of supporting both and makes it possible for couples to stay together. If one care worker can support both people, this also has a financial benefit in comparison with two sets of fees in a residential care home. This is especially advantageous if one individual 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 using an experienced company such as Total Living Care, selecting the right care worker, who is properly trained and understands what's needed to provide excellent live-in care, could be a struggle.
Some individuals take pleasure in the social life of being in a residential care home, the relief of not having to manage their own house or responsibility of managing their affairs. Giving up some of their personal privacy, but taking pleasure in a chance to be continuously in contact with others.
Whilst a live-in carer fee can be less than the price ofa residential home, it is not cheap to have care workers readily available 24- hours a day, on the other hand, determined by eligibility, personal budgets and direct payments mean it's possible for care to be state funded.
A live-in care worker will need a private room within the property
Not everyone is comfortable with having a unfamiliar person residing in the house or maybe they are used to living on their own. Even Though in our experience, the care worker soon becomes a companion as opposed to a complete stranger, plus the help and support soon outweigh the wish to live by yourself, or the alternative of a residential home.
Care workers need to have breaks and holidays and spend time with their loved ones, except if going through a company that offers a fully managed solution, such as Total Living Care, it could be a issue to find short- term cover.
