It is a fact of life that the longer a person lives, the older they will become. Unfortunately, sometimes during the aging process a person becomes as helpless as they were when they were infants. They need someone to care for them so they can continue to live safely. Although your younger days may have been filled with physical activity and independence, you may no longer have the ability to do the same things once you are older. This is when families must consider live in nurse care for their elderly family member.
The family has a responsibility to care for the older members of the family as they were cared for when they were younger. This is especially true of adult children who must now look after their older parents. However, younger family members may not be able to offer continuous care around the clock especially if their lives are hectic with work or their own family obligations. The family has two options: live in nurse care or residential care.
What Is The Difference Between Live In Care And Residential Care?
Most people often view residential care as being the first and only option after the family has determined that an elderly family member can no longer completely take care of themselves. The family removes the senior from the home all familiar surroundings. It is easy for seniors to become depressed and isolated because of the limitations that are in place.
Live in nurse care allows the senior to receive the same care while remaining in the home. The same security is in place as in a residential facility. But the family does not have to remove the senior from the family unit.
The Cost Advantages of Live In Nurse Care
The prices that you will pay for these two types of care are drastically different. The cost to relocate your loved one to a residential facility is more expensive because you are not only paying for the use of the facility; you are also paying for supplies, food, etc.
A live in care option is more cost effective. You simply pay for the care and services that your loved one needs.
As you get older, it is important that you remain in the same place surrounded by those who loved you. Live in nurse care will prevent the stress that people often associated with a new environment.
Having a caregiver living in the home can prevent depression, loneliness, and aggression that professionals associate with relocation to a residential facility. Evergreen Private Care has compassionate and competent caregivers ready to provide the assistance and care your loved one need.
