Senior Living Assistance: Live-In-Care VS Assisted Living Services in Sterling, Leesburg & Herndon, VA

Does Assisted Living or Live-In-Care provide the best living assistance care for your loved one?

Did you know that, according to the CDC, the average nursing home resident gets only 12 minutes of nursing care per day?

Is this what you want for your parents?  What if you could keep them at home?  Together.  Where you can visit any time you want and stay overnight if you want. There are a number of advantages Live-in-Care provides for seniors in need of living assistance that are not provided by Assisted Living services. See the chart below for a summary.

Live-In-Care

Assisted Living

   

Maintain your usual routines, like mealtimes

Mealtimes are set

Maintain privacy

Many different workers working in the facility

One-on-one care

Assisted living can assign up to 17 residents per CNA

Stay in your own home

Moving from your home can be very traumatic

Keep your pets

You can’t take your pets to assisted, skilled, or memory care facilities

Maintain your relationships, especially with spouse

When care levels change, spouses can be separated

Maintain relationships with neighbors

Moving outside of your neighborhood can be disruptive and it’s often difficult for your neighbors to continue to visit with you

Stay in your familiar community

Especially for dementia or Alzheimer’s it can be very unsettling moving to a new community

Families are more comfortable visiting in the family home setting

Home is more comfortable for everyone – assisted living can feel “institutional”

Continuity of care

Same one or two caregivers every day

Visitors can stay at any time, family can stay for the holidays

Can not host your family in your room in assisted living, skilled or memory care

Cost savings for couples

Live in care for couples is cheaper than paying for care for two people in assisted living or paying for care for one person at home and one person in assisted living

 

The benefits of Live-in-Care strike the right balance between providing the dedicated care needed and preserving independence by allowing individuals to continue living in their own homes.

If there is a senior in need of living assistance in your family, consider what best suits their specific needs. Often, Live-In-Care services provided at home will provide a higher quality of life that is not possible with the less flexible services associated with Assisted Living.
