People in need of assistance or help with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and/or Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs) can work with an agency or directly hire a live-in companion to provide Services & Supports in their own home. Individuals can receive 24/7 home care coverage or perhaps just opt to receive night time care. Live-in companions provide a broad range of services to address the specific needs and preferences of the individual.
These live-in companions, also referred to as live-in caregivers, can either live in their own residence or live in the home of the individual they are assisting. In either situation, there should be a room available in the home of the individual in need of care that they can assign to the live-in companion. Live-in companions may work in teams to provide care for an individual, especially if the live-in has a separate residence.
