Live-in Eldercare Agency vs Private Aide

Added on December 16, 2014 by Jared_Rodgers

Live-in Eldercare Agency vs Private Aide

Life Force Caregivers for the Elderly has provided personalized live-in custodial care to hundreds of seniors since 1989. A live-in home health aide is an alternative to an assisted living or long-term care nursing facility by assisting with activities of daily living right in the comfort of your own home. While conducting the initial assessment of a client's needs and expectations, families naturally ask questions about Life Force's services. One question that sometimes arises is: What is the advantage of working with an agency like Life Force over hiring our own private aide?

When choosing between these two options families normally make a decision based upon price. Hiring a private aide is typically cheaper than working with a licensed agency, but a private caregiver easily becomes more costly in the end.

Safety Responsibilities of Clients to Home Health Aides

Safety Responsibilities of Clients to Home Health Aides

Ensuring the safety of a caregiver living in an elderly client's home is one of the most important responsibilities of the client and a foremost priority of our home care agency.

Since most Life Force's caregivers are live-in caregivers for the elderly, the client's home becomes a workplace for the caregiver. These client responsibilities include, but are not limited to, the following.

To ensure that home services are provided in a home that is structurally sound. This may sound like a no-brainer, but we have learned never to assume anything. By structurally sound, we mean, for example, that the caregiver should not have to walk up wooden steps where a step is missing; the caregiver should sleep in an area where the roof doesn't leak; and the caregiver should not be subjected to living in an area of the residence that is undergoing major construction. One way for an agency to assess the safety of a client's home is to develop a Home Safety Checklist. An agency representative can bring this checklist to perform a home inspection at the time of the initial meeting with the client. The Home Safety Checklist may include a list of safety issues in the following areas of the residence: exterior; interior (entry and main living area); kitchen; bedroom; bathroom. For example, for the exterior of the home, the checklist might include the following question: Is the porch light working to adequately light the porch and door?
