Live-in Care in Perth
The decision to stay at home
Making the decision to move into residential care, such as a Nursing Home is generally not anybody’s first choice when considering how to spend their final years. Despite this, often it is viewed as the only option for a lot of families who are unable to keep up with the needs of their loved ones. Live-in Care is an alternative, allowing your senior loved one to age with dignity and in the comfort of thier own home.
When your loved one makes the decision to stay at home, a personalised care plan ensures they are support to conintue living the live they desire in familiar surroundings. Each step of the way your loved one’s needs will be taken into consideration along with their wishes. This ensures that they are a part of the decision process and that their independence is supported so that they can age with dignity and respect.
Live-in Care doesn’t necessarily have to break the bank either. Most people find that the cost of live-in care for their loved ones, in the comfort of their own home, is comparable to the cost of a nursing home, and it comes with a multitude of benefits such as the one-on-one care that isn’t possible in a residential facility.
Post- Hospitalisation or Injury: Live-in care
Home Care Assistance, West Coast Perth’s experienced and professional caregivers can help to get your loved one back to health after an injury or hospitalisation. Our highly-trained caregivers are experienced in ensuring that your doctor’s discharge advice is followed and can work with Allied Health professionals such as Physiotherapists or Occupational Therapists to continue rehabilitation in the comfort of their own home. Careful monitoring and support can mean the difference between another fall and getting back to health quickly.
Live-in Care for speciality conditions like Dementia, Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s
Live-in care by an experienced and highly skilled care team can negate the need to place your loved one into a residential care facility, such as a nursing home. By remaining in their familiar environment, and in the community that they have a connection to, your loved one can avoid the steep decline in cognitive function that often accompanies the sudden and often traumatic move into residential care.
Live-in care at home also allows your loved one to have dedicated one-on-one care, something that is not possible in a busy residential facility. With the help of your trusted and reliable Care Team, you can step back from the stress of having to do it all and have some time to look after yourself and avoid getting burned out. Having this support system makes it easier on you and your loved one in the event that you need to be away for any period of time (such as an unexpected hospital visit, or a planned holiday).
