What is live-in care?
UniversaCare’s live-in care services are provided by certified home health aides in which the caregiver resides in the home of the patient. Live-in care allows for the caregiver to provide overnight and around-the-clock care to the patient. The caregiver provides personal, social, and domestic in-home care as well as supervision for you or your loved one to remain safe and clean in the comfort of their home.
What does live-in care entail?
Live-in caregivers often provide the same care services as those who work as hourly home caregivers. These care services include:
- Companionship and socialization
- Assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
- Meal preparation, shopping, and transportation
- Medication reminders
- Liaising with family members and often the rest of the medical team
Live-in caregivers also provide a safety net for dementia patients who may not need continuous care as much as they need supervision.
