Addressing Common Concerns about Live-in Care

By Jeff Hill, 11:24 pm on October 10, 2014

Peace of mind can be a matter of concern if you have an elderly parent or a loved one who is living at home alone. Perhaps they have reported falling more frequently or are having a hard time getting out and shopping for groceries and are therefore skipping several meals. At Home Care Assistance in Phoenix, AZ, we understand that aging adults usually want in-home help without sacrificing their dignity and independence, and our live-in caregivers help make that a reality.

If you’re considering talking to an aging parent about their in-home care needs, first consider these common questions about around-the-clock senior care provided by professional Phoenix caregivers.

Who needs live-in care?

You may think that live-in-care is primarily for bed-ridden, ill or homebound seniors. However, a variety of older adults can benefit from receiving in-home senior care in order to: prevent injury from frequent falls, drive out feelings of depression and loneliness, and get help remembering medications and meal times. Live-in caregivers are also able to assist with meal preparation, errands, transportation, light housework and personal care, just to name a few things.

In addition, live-incare is good for the elderly who want to avoid a contingency of caregivers. Consistency is at the core of our live-in care services and our main goal is to increase your loved one’s quality of life by providing personalized and continuous care.

Can I afford 24/7 live-in care?

There a variety of ways to finance care in home, from insurance and government funding to reverse mortgages and loans. A Care Manager from Home Care Assistance would be happy to discuss finance options with you.

Will I like the assigned caregiver?

Our caregivers are always carefully matched to suit your elderly loved one’s personality and care needs. However, if your loved one is not happy for any reason, we will promptly replace your caregiver at no charge to you.
