Live-In Caregiver Services
We understand that as an individual age, you might start needing additional help if you are going to continue to live at home. For people that have difficulty with daily activities like cooking, eating, bathing, showering, sleeping or overall mobility, we can be with you to help. Live-in care can be a great alternative to assisted living or nursing homes. Our services are customized for you as an individual, no shortcuts, and no compromises. The In Home Personal Services mission is to acknowledge you or your loved one as an individual while always being respectful. Around the clock, care is possible at your own home and having access to live-in care can reduce the factors that might lead to a nursing home admission.
Our Live-in Caregiver services introduce the opportunity to receive extremely personalized care whenever senior assistance is needed. Live-in Caregivers are meticulously matched to each individual client based on the level of in-home care needed, the skill set of the caregiver, and common interests and compatible personalities. A live-in caregiver could be the best option for you or a loved one, especially if you want to stay in the comfort of your own home.
A Live-In Caregiver Personal Care Services Include:
Bathing by yourself can be dangerous. A bathroom is a place that is slippery and wet and can easily lead to a nasty fall. We help seniors take their baths safely and decrease the chances that a fall takes place. Our caregivers are trained on how to prevent falling and injury during the bathing process.
Looking great at home or before an outing can make any woman feel confident and good about themselves. Our caregivers can help apply lotions, make-up, and other beauty products because no matter what age you have achieved looking your best never gets old.
Continence care may be an embarrassing subject to some, but it is extremely important to address as a senior’s physical abilities don’t allow for them to properly take care of this themselves. Before it becomes a health issue, talk to our friendly staff about how we can help you or your loved one.
Our caregivers can help with dressing and grooming at your residence. We make sure that your routine is adhered to while making you comfortable in your clothing. We can even wash and launder your clothing too.
Keeping clean and performing household tasks can become difficult as we age. For most people, hygiene care is an intimate process so it can be hard to ask for help even when you need it. Our staff can help you by being as discreet as possible while making sure you are well cared for and clean. We understand the intricacies and fears involved and will make sure to keep you feeling at ease while reducing the danger of falls and other health risks.
Forgetting your medication can be a costly mistake. Staying on track and remembering to take your medications on time and following the doctors’ instructions is important to your overall health. Taking too many or too few pills can be prevented by having our staff remind you when to take your medication.
