Are you one of the home health care agencies in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex licensed to provide Live In home care, or 24 hour home health care for elderly? Yes, 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.
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.
Because the Live In care giver is there for consecutive days they are allowed/required to get an adequate period of sleep. We do work with each client on an alert system to awaken the caregiver. Even though the care giver is asleep at times, clients report sound peace of mind just knowing an experienced caregiver is near.
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. One of the reasons we have one of the best reputations for Live In care, and as a result the home care agency in Dallas Fowe Live In type of service, is that we have an incredible method of successfully matching each client with a very compatible care giver. When a single care giver is in a client’s home this much, compatibility has to be as close to perfection as you can get.
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.
