Live-In Aide Duties
A Live-In Aide undergoes the same home health care training as a Home Health Aide (HHA), but the duties of a Live-In Aide means a person who resides in the client’s home to provide assistance whenever they are needed.
Live-In Aides quickly acclimate to the patient’s schedule and provide consistency and reassurance throughout the day that a helping hand is always near. Because Live-In Aides work so closely with their patients, they are often the first person to notice changes in a patient’s routines, providing family members and SelectCare’s staff with valuable insight into the patient’s health.
Live-In services are especially helpful for patients who typically sleep through the night but desire an added level of safety during the evening hours, when slips, trips and wandering are a greater risk. Live In Aides are some of our most dedicated staff members and build their sleep schedule around their patient’s routine. The demanding nature of these assignments means Live In Aide services are best suited for clients whose routines typically allow for six to seven hours of uninterrupted rest.
When SelectCare Home Care Services begins a Live-In case, our Service Coordinators select Aides who match the client’s personality and temperament – we stand by our motto: “The Right Person Makes All the Difference.” Social activity plays an important role in a patient’s quality of life, and by carefully selecting the best Live-In Aide for each patient, we ensure that we are providing not only quality home health care, but the companionship and social engagement our patients deserve.
