The Benefits of a Live In Caregiver

For some individuals, occasional visits and appointments with a Caregiver isn’t enough. Although our Personal Support Workers and other Registered Professionals are available, on-call 24/7, a Live-In Caregiver is sometimes necessary. We offer live-in services as part of our full suite of superior, individualized, private healthcare plans delivered in the home.

Integracare’s Toronto home care services includes personal support, nursing care, dementia care, palliative care, wound care, physiotherapy, massage therapy, and more. Our live-in care services are built on our philosophy of fostering client independence and joyful living. There are many reasons why live-in care is sometimes required, and there are several benefits to having a trained and certified personal support worker available to your loved one whenever they need.

Seniors with Alzheimer’s or Dementia receive much-needed support from having someone immediately available to them when they experience agitation, confusion, or a tendency to wander at night. There is also a common worry among family members about taking medication and their loved one experiencing accidents and falls. Clients who are recovering from or experiencing an injury, illness, or those with limited mobility, also greatly benefit from close, continued assistance. Family members and friends are not always available to help with daily tasks, chores, appointments, shopping, or attending events outside the home. It is important to have a trusted Caregiver who has formed a special bond and who understands their Client’s needs.

It can be difficult and stressful to return home alone from a hospital stay. A Live-In Caregiver can make the transition more comfortable, safer, and easier. Having someone available to look after the maintenance of the home, meal preparation, cleaning, and personal care, who is also a trained, certified and receiving regular supervision from our Registered Nursing Coordinators ensures Clients are receiving the care they need when they need it. Clients can focus on resting and the healing process. Our Live-In Caregivers provide relief when family members or other loved ones are not available for a period of time.

Integracare’s Live-In Caregivers want to promote the independence and joyful living of those in their care. Their role is to enhance a sense of freedom and comfort in the home by assisting whenever called upon. We understand that making the decision to seek private home healthcare can be a difficult one. We are dedicated to providing person-centered care plans, designed in collaboration with Clients, their families, and other health professionals, according to the individual’s beliefs and personal needs. Our services provide compassionate, practical help, and the decision you make regarding a Live-In Caregiver can make a world of difference.
