What Is Live In Care?
The main point of difference between Home Care and Live-in Care is that Live-in Care is a 24/7 service. As seniors reach an advanced age, we know that frailty, chronic illness or mobility challenges can make living alone too difficult. Yet, research shows that nine out of ten seniors say that they wish to remain at home.
Live-in Care allows you or your loved one to remain in the comfort of your own home and maintain as much independence as possible, while ensuring the highest level of safety with around the clock one-to-one care.
A caregiver is always watching over you or your loved one, offering emotional support, reducing fall risk and assisting in all activities of daily living.
How Does It Work?
We bring one-on-one quality care to you or your loved one in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Two of our experienced personal caregivers share the week, collectively staying in your home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide whatever assistance you need to ensure your comfort and safety. One caregiver will work 4 days of the week and the second 3 days a week. Caregivers return to their own homes at the end of their 4 or 3 day shift each week.
There are many indications live-in care might be appropriate for you or a loved one, including:
- Increasing care needs
- Constant or increased confusion
- Progression through the stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia
- Hospital discharge
- Feeling isolated and wanting constant companionship
- Long-distance family carers feeling less confident leaving their loved ones alone
Why Choose Live-in Care
If you’re looking for a comprehensive, cost-effective alternative to moving away from home, Live-in care is the choice for you.
The emotional strain associated with moving away from the familiarity and comfort of home often leads to physical decline, further loss of independence and diminished quality-of-life. Around-the-clock care allows you or your loved one to remain in your home, while ensuring safety and promoting optimal well-being.
In addition, caregivers offer a much more personalized plan of care with one-to-one support tailored to your status, conditions, preferences, hobbies and lifestyle.

"Please extend my thanks to Susan (the caregiver) and her dog, I had a very unusual talk with my mom yesterday in that this was the first call in years where she was so relaxed and so happy with her day and it was clearly due to Susan and her dog."
