Advantages and Disadvantages of Live-in Care
The main 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 a completely familiar surrounding, filled with their treasured possessions, by staying in their own property. A recent survey( conducted 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 a valuable service, most people prefer to stay in their own home when they can
Peace of mind for the client, their friends and neighbours and members of the family that experienced and fully trained hands are there 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 strongly encourage and support the continued activities of interests and hobbies. Live-in care, being at home and a feeling of ongoing independence has a positive effect on individual happiness, dignity, confidence and well- being.
A live-in care worker will help take care of 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 and attention.
If travel and leisure remains possible, then a full -time carer could accompany a client on a break.
Live-in carers will be matched up in accordance with expertise and experience meaning they are specifically trained 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 makes it possible for couples to stay together. If one care worker can support both people, this also has a financial advantage in comparison with two sets of charges in a residential care home. This is particularly beneficial if one 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
Except If utilising an experienced company such as Total Living Care, finding the right care worker, who is properly trained and knows what's needed to provide exceptional live-in care, could be a challenge.
A lot of people enjoy the social life of being in a residential care home, the relief of not having to deal with their own house or responsibility of controlling their affairs. Giving up some of their privacy, but taking pleasure in the ability to be continuously in contact with other people.
Though a live-in carer cost can be less than the cost ofa residential home, it is not cheap to have care workers available 24- hours a day, even so, determined by eligibility, personal budgets and direct payments mean it is possible for care to be state funded.
A live-in care worker will require a private room within the residence
Not everyone is comfortable with having a stranger living in the home or perhaps they are used to living by themselves. Even Though in our experience, the care worker quickly becomes a companion rather than a stranger, and the support and help soon outweigh the wish to live on your own, or perhaps the alternative of the residential home.
Care workers need to have breaks and holidays and spend time with their own families, unless of course going through a company that offers a completely managed service, such as Total Living Care, it can be a problem to locate short- term cover.
