Why Live-In Care Can Be More Beneficial Than Residential Care

When extra help is needed, some families may think that residential care is the only answer. This isn’t the case at all! Live-in care may be a more suitable approach to providing support, and it comes with a whole host of benefits for the client and their family.

The benefits of live-in care

97% of people prefer to stay in their homes for as long as they can. Live-in care makes that possible. It allows a client to stay as independent as possible in a setting they are familiar with. This can be perfect for someone who is living with dementia as new settings and schedules can be confusing and even frightening. Residential care homes tend to have their own schedules and activities. These may not be to everyone’s liking or what they’re used to.

With live-in care, you can have peace of mind that a professional has the client’s best interests in mind. The same routines are kept and friends are met in a relaxed accustomed environment. Live-in care is there to give support when needed, both routinely or in unexpected times, while the client continues with everyday life, doing the things they love on their own time. Live-in care will assist with freshly cooked meals, personal care, shopping, and more.
