The FCP Live-In Caregiver Approach to Senior Care | There’s No Place Like Home
It’s an established fact the majority of people want to remain at home as they age. After all, home is where we build our families, make precious memories, keep our most cherished possessions, and our loyal pets, and visit with family and friends whenever we like. If the thought of placing mom or dad in a long-term care facility is filling you with anxiety, the staff at FCP Live-in is here to help. Assisted living facilities are not always the best solution, and a part-time home health aide may not provide enough support, especially when dementia-related illnesses are involved. But, the caregivers at FCP Live-In provide the best solutions for care and create a “safe place” in the home. They provide personal assistance and care, homemaking services, companionship, and other assistance for the unique needs of each client. Our caregivers are always there to help with your loved one’s daily routine, like walking to the bathroom, taking their medication, and cooking a meal. They communicate with family members and are there to call for help when an emergency occurs.
The staff at FCP Live-In will provide live-in home care at every stage of the aging process, and in coordination with your loved one’s primary care physicians, preferred home health agency, and other medical providers. This close interaction with the live-in caregiver, your loved one’s medical providers and your family means even subtle changes in your loved one’s physical or cognitive condition won’t go undetected. Other benefits to Live-in home care include freedom from strict regimens and visiting hours typical of long-term care facilities. All of these factors mean very little change in your loved one’s life and less anxiety in yours.
FCP Live-In caregivers provide all of the services you might expect from a typical assisted living facility, but the one-on-one relationship offers so much more! Plus, our flat, daily rate covers all personal care needs and is usually more cost-effective than the rates charged by nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or hourly home care agencies.
If you’re ready to explore a better option for senior care, give FCP Live-In a call today at 1(866) 559-9492.
Having an FCP Live-In caregiver means our clients do not wait for hours to use the bathroom or receive other personal care assistance, and they can eat, sleep, and watch TV on their own schedule.
Our live-in caregivers will:
- Ensure that all medications are taken on time and in the correct dosage
- Ensure adequate hydration
- Provide escorts to medical appointments, worship services, and social engagements
- Assist with light housekeeping, laundry, and shopping
Caring for only one client gives our caregivers more time to engage in friendly conversation and assist with gardening, scrapbooking, or other hobbies. All of our care plans include “Living Well,” an exclusive calendar-based program of engaging, relationship-building daily activities designed to encourage a true sense of companionship between client and caregiver.
The Cost: Paying for Long-Term Care
No one really likes to think about growing older or the possibility of needing long-term care.
But according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, there’s a 70% chance that individuals currently turning 65 will need long-term care at some point in their lives.
Long-term care can be extremely expensive, ranging from an average of $68 per day for adult day care services to about $253 per day for a skilled nursing home. The actual cost will depend on the type of care required, the provider, and the area where you live.
FCP Live-In is an affordable alternative to an assisted living facility and one of the best options in senior care. Plus, the added benefit of having one-on-one interaction between the client and caregiver is not only mentally beneficial but also socially engaging. This type of care makes it easier for a caregiver to catch the little things with your loved one that might be missed by an assisted living facility staff member or part-time home health aide.
Pricing varies due to location. Call us today and we can help you explore the options of in-home care for you or your loved one.
Our Caregivers: Many Say They Are Angels And Should Have Halos
At FCP Live-In we only hire the best caregivers who are Certified Nursing Assistants, (CNAs), Home Health Aides (HHAs), or Personal Care Assistants (PCAs) with 2+ years of experience. First, we run in-depth state and national background checks on applicants. We also use a personality profile to evaluate applicants. We then conduct a round of in-depth interviews and invite those who stand out for a third interview. Applicants must undergo and pass our skills assessments and attend a full-day orientation where we further evaluate thier capabilities and attitude. These are just a few of the important steps we take to ensure quality care.
At FCP Live-In, we believe in a holistic approach to senior care, with every caregiver carefully selected to meet each client’s unique physical, mental, and emotional needs. Our exclusive “Harmony Match” system begins with an expert care coordinator —either a social worker or geriatric care manager —coming to the home to gain a thorough understanding of your loved one’s physical, mental, and psychological needs, along with their sleeping habits, favorite foods and TV shows, hobbies and interests, and spiritual beliefs. The FCP Live-In operations department uses the results of this extensive process to identify the best caregiver for you or your loved one.
Before everything is finalized, your care coordinator and matched caregiver will travel to your loved one’s home for a personal introduction to ensure we have found the perfect match. We also offer a 5-day opt-out period once a caregiver is in place, just in case you decide live-in care is not for you or your loved one.
A Commitment to offering Quality Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care
More than 15 million Americans are currently caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Taking care of someone with dementia is never easy. In fact, doing so requires a great deal of experience, training, and understanding on the part of the caregiver. At FCP Live-In, we understand dementia-related issues and how best to deliver person-centered dementia care. All of our direct care staff go through a habilitation therapy training curriculum created by the Alzheimer’s Association to assist providers in giving exceptional dementia care. The training enhances the skills of our caregivers who provide one-to-one dementia care with their attention focused solely on the client.
The Care: A Commitment to Quality Care and genuine caring
FCP Live-In’s commitment to our clients, their families, and their caregivers doesn’t end with the placement process. Once we’ve found the perfect match for your loved one, we will reach out to you, your loved one or family member at least once a week to ensure everything is going well and address any concerns that might arise.
You can also expect:
- Caregivers with the latest care training, especially in dementia and Alzheimer’s care
