As important as it may be to keep loved ones at home, though, it’s also tough for you to ensure that they have the care they need. Your schedule is likely already overflowing. How can you make your loved one’s needs a priority? Choosing the right eldercare services and home healthcare agency can help.

Live In or Live Out Care?

Loved ones from coast to coast rely on professional home healthcare services to ensure their aging loved ones can stay in their homes for as long as possible. Care for the elderly can range from simple tasks to more complex options; sometimes professionals simply stop by a few times per week while others may actually live in the home. What’s the difference between the two kinds of services? Which one is right for your loved one? This guide can help.

Evaluating Your Needs

Senior woman and supporting nurseBefore you even begin to tackle the question of live in or live out care, the key is to have the medical and non-medical needs of your loved one evaluated. Hired caregivers don’t have to provide medical services. In fact, simple things like running errands, light housekeeping, and simple companionship are all available with live out caregivers. You’ll need to provide more information about your loved one’s current care schedule (who comes in and how often that occurs) and his or her current medical and non-medical needs. For example, is bathing an issue? Are there problems remembering to take medications? All of that should be part of the assessment.

Live In Care
The goal with live in care is to provide your loved one around-the-clock support that helps to keep him or her in their home for as long as possible. The right live in caregivers are highly capable, compassionate individual and can be vital when someone can no longer be left alone. Like all Home Health Aides, they offer help with bathing, continence, dressing, personal hygiene, nutrition, range of motion, and medication reminders. Depending upon your situation, it can be either for a short period of time or for the long term.
