Live in Care for Seniors in Delray Beach FL
When people begin talking about any type of live in care for seniors, one of the most common concerns they have is the cost. It’s easy to dismiss certain types of senior care because one assumes
it’s going to be too expensive. In reality, not getting proper care can be far more costly in the long run.
If elderly people are having difficulty taking care of themselves and are putting themselves at risk of slip and fall accidents or other injuries and mishaps, the cost of recovery can far surpass any amount they would pay for a live in home care provider for an entire year.
A good idea to begin talking about the prospect of hiring a live in home care provider would be to contact an agency in the area and understand exactly how much it would cost. The average live in caregiver currently earns money for 40 hours of work every week. They certainly get the benefit of having free housing, but they also often work many more hours than just 40 hours.
Many of these caregivers end up working during the night when the senior client has to get up and use the bathroom and requires assistance, for example. They also prepare meals and may drive the senior to doctors’ appointments, the store, and running other errands. In the evening they will be helping the senior get ready for bed, get into bed, and be there to support them if they need assistance at any time during the night.
If you were to hire a home care aide to come in and provide this type of services throughout the week, including the weekends, the cost of that would be far more than hiring a single caregiver to live with the senior.
