More Live-In Information

To determine if you or a loved one have a situation and environment appropriate for live-in care, a home care coordinator will visit with you and your family. They will assess the client’s home environment and prepare a plan of care. Live-in care, while not appropriate for everyone, is an affordable way of providing 24-hour care to those who can not otherwise live independently.

As with hourly care, live-in caregivers perform a variety of duties tailored to the client’s individual needs and wants, including:

  • Bathing, grooming and dressing
  • Assisting with elimination
  • Assisting with walking and/or transferring
  • Exercising/range of motion
  • Reminding to take medications
  • Planning and preparing meals
  • Laundry and light housekeeping
  • Reducing the possibility of falling in the home
  • Redirection and reorientation when necessary
  • Supervision and companionship
  • Making sure bills/financial obligations are reviewed and paid in a timely manner
  • Running errands, such as to the grocery store and to doctor appointments
  • Taking care of the client’s pets
  • Maintaining a safe home environment
  • Home Oxygen management
  • Comfort and compassionate care for post-operative individuals and those receiving Hospice services

In addition, all live-in care clients are managed by one of our RN Case Managers, who visit each client regularly. They can manage and administer the client’s medications, order refills and communicate and/or coordinate care with the client’s physician. They frequently speak to family members, give updates, and problem solve, in order to maintain the consistent high-quality care our client’s receive. In essence, they are the “eyes and ears” for family members who sometimes live far away from their loved one.

If you or a loved one are interested in live-in services, or have additional questions about any of our services, e-mail our RN Case Managers or call us at
