Many people fear they will lose their independence if they move into a ALF or a Nursing Home. A good alternative is to employ a live-in caregiver for getting everything you need right at your residence. Think of an in-home caregiver as a jack of all trades. The person caring at home is responsible for fulfilling all your daily needs like eating, dressing, and bathing while making sure your home is a safe environment for you. A caregiver can be a medically trained professional helping you with medications reminders, checking vitals and monitoring your health. On the other hand, they can also be your personal assistant helping with things like cleaning and grocery shopping. The roles of an elderly caregiver are broad but they all fulfill the same end goal; to give you the complete peace of mind you deserve.
