Live In Care
For many years we have successfully provided Live In home care and 24 hour home care at very good rates for many types of home health care needs, including Alzheimer’s home health care, home health care for dementia and home health for many other health conditions. Live In care provides a more affordable alternative for situations in which someone would like a care giver on premises 24 hours a day. Care Mountain will normally work a seven day a week Live In with two people, with one doing four days and the other three days out of the week. The client pays a daily rate which is much, much lower than if paying hourly for shift workers throughout the day. Around the clock care can be done as shift work or as a Live-In. As shift work, caregivers typically work in 12 hour shifts covering the client’s desired time frames. As Live-In work, caregivers stay from one to seven days weekly while getting adequate sleep time on premises (can be woken if needed). Seven day weekly Live-Ins typically involve the same two caregivers with one working four days weekly and the other three days weekly. Both caregivers typically have their own home they stay at for their days off. We have found that Live In care versus 24 hour shift work tends to work in 95% of the cases we encounter. Those situations that involved a temporary fragile medical situation, or when in the last few weeks of life tend to be more ideal for the 24 hour shift work versus Live In caregivers. The Live In care giver can do a wide variety of tasks such as assisting with cooking, lite household chores, dressing, bathing, personal hygiene, transportation, shopping, self-administration of medications, ambulating and much, much more. In all our years in business we have never had two Live In clients whose needs were similar, so we expect each case to be a very customized and unique one. For example, when we care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease on a Live In bases the family at times is concerned that a Live In may not work out because their love one often gets up at all hours of the night. While this can be an immediate issue with a Live In because they do need adequate sleep, we have normally found it not an issue going forward. With our many years of experience we are able to find out what is triggering the up at all hours of the night behavior, and remove or manage those triggers in a way that eliminates or minimizes this behavior, so that it is not an issue for the Live In caregiver.
