Live-in Care vs Assisted Living: Which is Right for Your Loved One?

June 25, 2024

As our loved ones age, it becomes increasingly important to ensure they receive the care and support they need to maintain their quality of life. They have built a life in their home and as a younger generation, you want to honor that while making sure they are safe and healthy. Two popular options to choose from are live-in care and assisted living facilities. Here’s a closer look at each to help you make an informed decision for your loved one.

Live-in Care

Live-in care – also known as in-home care – allows seniors to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes while receiving personalized care and assistance. With this option, a team of professional caregivers trades off staying with living with your loved one to provide round-the-clock care, following a carefully crafted care plan put in place by a registered nurse. Additional support includes typical aspects of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation, medication management and light housekeeping.

Advantages of Live-in Care

Assisted Living Facilities

Assisted living facilities are residential communities designed to provide housing, personal care services, and social opportunities for seniors who need assistance with daily activities but do not require the level of care provided in medical facility.
