few reasons why hire a live in caregiver
Few Reasons Why Hire a Live-In Caregiver
  • You will enjoy greater flexibility. Even when you like helping your aging family member, it is natural to feel stressed out when you have to handle so many things at the same time. You have to play everything as per the daily schedule of your family member. You will be able to take care of other things as well when you hire a caregiver because they can handle most things from preparing the meals and administering medications in a timely manner to taking good care of their personal hygiene.
  • You will be in a better position to build a strong and trusting relationship with a live-in caregiver. Leaving your aging family member in a nursing home has its benefits, but you will never be able to enjoy a good bond with their caregivers. Things are different with a live-in caregiver because you will be able to interact with them and it will also help your loved one establish a better connection with their caregiver.
  • You will have a better peace of mind. When you know that there is a trained professional around to help you take right care of your family member, you will always feel more relaxed and feel better. You can even go out and take care of other important things in your life, knowing that a trained professional is at home to deal with any medical emergency.
  • You will not have to worry about your loved one being exposed to infections. In nursing homes and other facilities where there are other patients as well, there is always a high risk of catching different diseases and contracting infections. With your loved one at home, you do not have to worry about it and the caregiver will also ensure that your loved one enjoys healthier, happier recovery.
things you need to know before hiring a live in caregiver
Things You Need to Know before Hiring a Live-In Caregiver
  • You have to determine whether your loved one really needs a live-in caregiver or not. You may consider using this option if your loved one needs assistance with dressing and bathing, medication, cooking meals, and using the washroom. If you have to attend to other matters and there is no one else in your home, you may consider hiring a live-in caregiver to help someone you know deal with loneliness.
  • You have to know what services caregivers offer and when. Many people are under the impression that because live-in caregivers live in the house with them, they will provide assistance 24 hours a day. This is not true because even they need some time off to handle other problems in their lives. In most cases, they are only going to offer assistance with daily tasks. Therefore, you should consider this important point and then decide if your loved one will certainly benefit from hiring a live-in caregiver or not.
  • You have to decide whether you need caregivers for a short time or you need them on a long-term basis. Sometimes, you may even benefit from hiring them permanently. It all depends on the condition of your loved one. If they have a minor injury that makes it difficult for them to handle their daily tasks, you may consider hiring a caregiver for a short time only. Similarly, if you provide primary care to your loved one but you need to go somewhere for a short time, you can also consider hiring a caregiver on a short-term basis. It is also a good idea to hire a caregiver when your loved one has experienced a traumatic incident and now finds it difficult to manage their daily life, live-in caregivers can help make it easier to get back to their normal routine. In case your loved one is suffering from Alzheimer's or other chronic problems, going for permanent caregivers may be the best option.
three types of caregivers to chose from for your loved one
Three Types of Caregivers To Chose From For Your Loved One
  • A Caregiver that lives with the individual.
    • This caregiver lives with the person they are caring for. They do everything for them such as cleaning, cooking, feeding, shopping and etc. On a daily basis since they live there full time. When friends or family members are unable to give their full attention to the individual in need, then a caregiver should be assigned to the house. This makes it easier for the family.
  • A Caregiver that lives near-by.
    • Having a caregiver that lives nearby is an extra advantage. Family members often have busy schedules such as working or taking care of kids and might not have much time to help out that individual as much as the can. A schedule can be set for the caregiver. With a caregiver living nearby, they can help and make sure things are in order for the family members when they return.
  • A Caregiver that lives far away.
    • This caregiver isn't the best option. This would be classified as a caregiver living at home with the individual while you're living somewhere else. With this option, there isn't much room for you to give orders. The caregiver is in charge of everything, making sure this person has eaten, taken a bath and had their pills for the day. This option leaves the family members guessing about what is going on. The caregiver must know that any serious decision being made must be agreed upon with the family. Many people start to feel lonely or get worried about this option, but making trips or even calling their loved ones can be a great coping mechanism to help them get through this tough time.
live in caregivers vs residential care
Live-In Caregivers vs. Residential Care
  • What kind of care is there?
    • There are two different types of care for those who need it. There is live in home care, and there is the residential care. Live in home care is a caregiver that lives under your roof and from when you wake up to when you go to bed, there will be someone to assist you. Then there is residential care. Residential care you move to live in a facility with others who need care but all your needs are taken care of, and you have your space.
  • Benefits of Live-in care
    • There are many benefits to having a live-in caregiver. First and the most appealing is that you can stay at your own house. The caregivers come to you, sometimes they are living under the same roof, or they have around the clock caregivers who don’t live under your roof. Another good reason is that you get one-on-one care with your caregivers. You can keep your pets with you, and you have control over meals and what time meals are ready.
  • Benefits of Residential care
    • There are some good benefits for residential care also. You have your individual space, and the rest of the place is cleaned and maintained by staff. As these are communities, you get much more social interaction and events you can attend without having to plan them yourself or exhausting your energy. In some facilities, you have immediate access to doctors and medical care, as they have them on-call and on staff. If you don’t care for planning meals, meals are planned and prepared by the staff, all you have to do is be on time!
few reasons why respite care is a good choice for primary caregivers
Few Reasons Why Respite Care is a Good Choice for Primary Caregivers
  • Respite care is one of the best things you can do to help you stay healthy while helping a loved one live a healthy life. It can actually offer relief and renewal, which means that you will have enough time to yourself to charge your battery and return with more passion. You have to understand that no matter how hard you try, you just do not have all the tools and knowledge required to offer quality care. To avoid a burnout, you can consider using the option of respite care that provides you with a temporary rest and relieves you of your duties for a short time. Those occasional short-term breaks can help you relieve stress, restore a sense of balance to your life, and renew your energy. When you know there is something taking care of your loved one, you will certainly feel relaxed and be able to relieve stress.
  • It is worth mentioning that many people think that leaving their loved ones in a nursing home, even for a short time, is not a great idea. Of course, there are benefits, but you may not feel comfortable leaving your loved one in the hands of people you do not know. By opting for respite care, you do not have to worry about receiving low quality care. You can interact directly with people who will be responsible for taking care of your loved ones. Respite care ensures that your loved one also feel comfortable for as long as you want them to stay there, and this gives you some time to take care of other things happening in your life.
benefits of hiring a foot care nurse
Benefits of Hiring a Foot Care Nurse
  • You will receive highly professional foot care from trained professionals. Nail technicians and spa workers do possess some training, but they usually have no formal education related to foot care. Foot care nurses are different because they have completed years of training and education and are capable of offering advanced foot care. What it means is that only a foot care nurse is in a position to identify any foot related medical problems, and that is the reason why it is always a good idea to hire a foot nurse when your loved one is at an increased risk of developing foot related problems.
  • You can hire a foot care nurse when you want some help to deal with callous removal. Many spa workers may also offer their services in this regard, but they are not trained to handle such medical issues. It is always a better idea to work with a medical professional for corn and callous removal.
  • You can hire a foot care nurse to help trim your toenails when your doctor has recommended not doing it yourself. Many people with nerve damage, usually caused by dementia, diabetes, arthritis, etc., often fail to notice any pain when they have trimmed their toenails incorrectly. It could lead to infections and other serious complications. A foot care nurse knows how to handle the task and they can do it in a safe and effective way.
  • You can hire foot care nurses when you do not just want some foot care for an aging parent or a loved one but also when you want some education for yourself. They will teach you and explain different techniques so you could offer ongoing foot care to your loved one.
what makes a foot care nurse better than spa workers and nail technicians
What Makes a Foot Care Nurse Better than Spa Workers and Nail Technicians?
  • They have the degree and education to offer top-notch foot care services. They are actually registered nurses, personal support workers, or licensed practical nurses who choose to specialize in foot care. What it also means is that if you if you opt for personal support workers, you will receive basic foot care help. However, you will receive advanced foot care when you opt for registered nurses or licensed practical nurses.
  • They have the right type of training under their belt. In most cases, foot care nurses are certified by the provincial nursing college and come with a Certificate of Competence. You are going to get quality assistance because these nurses may have also completed special courses related to foot care.
  • They can take care of you and your loved one who may not be in a position to handle their routine life tasks on their own. Some patients are at a greater risk of developing foot related problems. A foot care nurse can be of great assistance here. A spa treatment is not going to make any difference in this situation. A foot care nurse will take care of the patient and report any medical issue they may find while offering foot care. The information can then help you look for additional services or opt for follow-up care.
  • They are trained as a medical professional, which makes them better than spa workers and nail technicians. It is worth mentioning that nail technicians may also have years of training, but they cannot be termed as registered nurses because they do not have any information about the medical aspect of different foot related problems. Similarly, spa workers cannot offer medical help. Foot care nurses can offer foot care help and also teach the client ways to prevent certain foot related problems.
