A live-in caregiver resides in the client’s home and provides consistent assistance with daily functions. They are trained to take on tasks like bathing, eating & toileting so that their loved ones can have a more comfortable life.
A live-in caretaker will reside at your loved one’s house for 24-hours every day of the week and be there when they need help performing their basic Activities of Daily Living or if they show any signs of distress. This is especially helpful because a live-in caregiver and the senior have a more personal bond. The caregiver knows the daily routine and is a consistent presence in the home.
At Astir Home Health Care, our Live-In Home Care services support the many details of everyday living:
Seniors that opt for live-in caregivers benefit from the presence of someone with their day and night. This decision is perfect for those who want to remain in their own homes, as they enjoy having a caregiver around all day long. Live-In Caregivers get along well because there are no odd schedules or work hours – it’s just constant companionship!
When it comes to choosing in-home care for an elderly person, there are many options. Live-in and 24-hour caregivers may seem like the same terminology, but they vary in how much time is spent with the senior, depending on their care needs. Understanding these differences will help determine what type of live-in or hourly home care would be best suited for each individual’s circumstances.
24-Hour Home Care (Hourly Home Care)
Live-In Home Care
If your family member needs only assistance with homemaker or personal services, or companion care, Medicare will not cover the cost.
Live-In Care is often less expensive than hourly home care.
According to the 2020 Genworth Cost of Care Study, the average national median cost for companion care (classified as homemaker services) was $54,912 ANNUALLY for a home health aide and $53,768 for a homemaker. The hourly rate for a home health aide ranged from $17.00 in Louisiana to $33.00 in Minnesota. The median cost for an hourly caregiver is $24.00 per hour.
Genworth calculates average median rates based on 44 hours per week. If your loved one only requires the help of a companion for a few hours per day or week, your costs may be significantly lower than these estimates.
For a clearer picture of your potential costs, determine your loved one’s needs and contact Astir Home Health Care to inquire about companion care providers and average costs in your area.
