How live-in care works
A live-in caregiver stays in the home 24 hours a day, and is available to assist morning, noon and night. If we provide live-in care for 7 days a week, we assign a primary caregiver and a back-up caregiver to the job. The primary caregiver provides care for 4-5 days a week, and the back-up caregiver takes over for the remainder of the week.
All live-in caregivers must maintain a separate, permanent residence. They are permitted to reside on the client's premises only during their assigned days and nights, and they must leave the client's premises with their belongings on their days off. They are strictly forbidden from using the client's property, such as phone, television or car, for their own, personal use. Live-in caregivers must also respect the company policy on visitors: none are allowed while providing live-in care.
How hourly care works
Not all older adults require live-in care. Many use our caregivers on an hourly basis, for example, just during the night, or just on the weekends, or just for transportation to doctor appointments. @home healthcare is totally flexible, and is happy to provide care whenever and wherever needed.
