When a loved one can’t be left alone and needs care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the only option that we used to have was to put them in a nursing home. However, you can now receive care for your loved one at home. Because it allows your loved one to stay at home and receive individual, one-on-one care rather than shared care, 24 hour and live-in home care is a less expensive alternative to nursing homes. There are no shared bedrooms or nursing home workers dividing their attention between in-home care and nursing home workers. Your in-home caregiver focuses only on the needs of one person, your loved one. By staying at home, your loved one avoids the confusion, worry, and anxiety that come with moving to a new location, such as a nursing facility.
After a free in-home assessment by a case manager, a care plan is made to fit the needs of each person and situation. However, there are two main options for 24-hour in-home care. The two in-home around the clock care options are:
A single caregiver offers 24-hour care for your loved one with live-in home care. A live-in caregiver is only scheduled for 4 or 5 days a week before being replaced by another live-in caregiver for the rest of the week. Over the course of a week, just these two caregivers offer care. The live-in caregiver is given a 4-hour break from care tasks every 24 hours to relax and recharge. If the case calls for it, an additional hourly caregiver can cover these four hours. The live-in caretaker also has an 8-hour sleep cycle. A room and a bed must be provided in the house for the live-in caregiver to sleep. Live-in care is charged on a per-day basis. Any extra care needed during the live-in caregiver’s four-hour break each day is billed by the hour.
Why Even with one-on-one personalized care, live-in home care is still less expensive than nursing home shared care.
With Tahara Health, two caregivers are scheduled daily, with each working a 12-hour shift. For medical or other reasons, it may be best to have three caregivers work in shifts of eight hours. The caretakers do not sleep in the home and are not given a room. Caregivers are always alert, do not sleep at home, and offer care 24 hours a day. Caregivers often work no more than four shifts every week. Home care is invoiced on an hourly basis.
