Why is 24 Hour Live-In Care Needed?
Almost 50% of the population over the age of 65 needs assistance on a day-to-day basis. As a senior continues to age, they will begin to need additional support during the day or night, and oftentimes even around the clock. This issue is especially important for those who live alone or who do not have someone who can look after them for extended periods of time – especially during nights.
Caring for the elderly can be very difficult to accommodate the needed amount of care and attention due to matters such as work, distance, and taking care of children. Declines in physical or mental functions can further escalate the need for extra support when it comes to taking care for a loved one.
Many clients start off with 8-hour or 12-hour intervals for their private caregivers, and then find out that they still need additional assistance around the clock for their loved one.
At Connecticut In-Home Assistance, we are more than happy to work with you and tailor a caregiving plan for your loved one that accommodates your unique situation and scheduling.
Benefits of Live-In Caregiving
The most apparent benefit of a live-in caregiver is that the person receiving care can stay in the comfort of their own home while still receiving the 24/7 care and attention that is required.
*Remember – each situation is unique and requires a custom caregiving plan to address the particular needs and factors of your particular situation.
A live-in caregiver offers the flexibility and the peace of mind knowing that your loved one always has access to the care and attention that they need, no matter the time of day.
Companionship has been proven to improve seniors’ moods, and fight off feelings of loneliness and isolation – both of which have been linked to depression.
One out of every three older adults report a lack of companionship and feeling alone. Having a live-in caregiver provides the companionship, socialization, and emotional support that your loved one needs to maintain a healthy lifestyle and fend against depression.
As the caregiver spends more time and becomes more familiar with your loved one, they begin to understand how to address certain needs and what your loved one’s favorite activities are.
Those with dementia especially benefit from the familiarity of having a dedicated live-in caregiver.
A live-in caregiver that can provide constant supervision around the clock greatly reduces the chances of unfortunate events.
According to the CDC, one in four elderly adults age 65+ fall every year. Falls are the most common cause of injury for seniors. On the average, a senior requires emergency care every 11 seconds, and an older adult dies from tripping and falling every 19 minutes.
In addition, some seniors are diagnosed with chronic health issues, or other conditions such as memory loss that carry safety concerns.
Live-in care means that a caregiver is on the premise at all times. Constant supervision reduces the chances of accidents, such as tripping and falling as well as other events such as bedwetting due to not making it to the bathroom in time.
Aging in Place
Seniors living in their own homes report feelings of safety, comfort, and a higher overall quality of life due to familiarity of their surroundings. Additionally, the relieved burden of certain tasks such as housekeeping, laundry, and transportation can be an added convenience that is accompanied with the security of a caregiver being available.
Certain hobbies or activities that seniors may begin to have a difficult time doing are now open to them once again due to the extra assistance, and many seniors report exploring new activities altogether due having a caregiver available.

You May Need 24-Hour Live-In Caregiving If:
Your loved one requires temporary support around the clock
Not all caregiving is required to be permanent. Many people utilize a live-in caregiver temporarily due to certain situations, such as being out of town for a certain period of time. Extra care support may be required in the short-term for those who are recovering from recent medical surgeries, illnesses, or conditions that require round the clock supervision.
Your loved one is afflicted with a certain condition
Live-in caregiving is often needed for individuals who have certain conditions or needs that require someone to be present at all times. Certain patients, such as those with Alzheimer’s and dementia, need constant supervision 24 hours a day, but may not necessarily need constant care and physical assistance. Live-in Caregivers are also very common with those diagnosed with Parkinson’s as they need mobility assistance, but may not need the higher level nursing requirements from an assisted living facility.
Your Loved one needs assistance with daily activities or functions
Certain examples include functions like eating, hygiene, mobility, and bathroom assistance. Our caregivers are specially trained in these tasks and can provide experienced hands-on care.
Your loved one needs more attention beyond an 8-hour or 12-hour caregiver
A live-in caregiver does not need to be there the full 7 days a week. Many people utilize the services of a private caregiver during certain days of the week where they have scheduling conflicts due to work and other personal matters. Our caregivers are dedicated to working with you and accommodating the needs and conflicts of your schedule.

We Will Always Be There for You & Your Loved One
The last thing you want for your loved one is a high turnover rate on the number of people caring for them. The most important factor is to ensure that they are being attended to by a qualified, experienced, and caring person who is optimal in meeting the requirements for both, you and your loved one. This ensures that your loved one is being attended to by a person you can both trust.
A personal, consistent live-in caregiver ensures that there is clear communication between you and your loved one, as people generally prefer receiving updates from one consistent person when it comes to their loved ones’ health, as well as greater efficiency and reliability in care. This also allows for a greater bonding experience between our caregiver and your loved one, which has been shown to have lower turnover rates.
This is why you are involved in personally selecting your caregivers at Connecticut In-Home Support. All of our caregivers are thoroughly background checked and reviewed to ensure that only the best candidates are being presented to you, but ultimately, you have final say in the caregivers you want looking after your loved one. This ensures that you and your family have more peace of mind with who will be staying in your home with your loved one for extended periods of time.
All of our caregivers are thoroughly vetted, including a historical review of their experiences, criminal, reference, and background checks. We take care of all other formalities such as wages and taxes so that you only receive a single bill, and can accommodate for additional providers as needed.
Our caregivers have experience in providing support for those with various conditions, including dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and limited movement due to conditions like stroke.
