Assisted Living At Home

 

 

Assisted Living within the Comfort of your Home!

When our parents or loved ones start to need extra care and assistance with age, we must decide how to best provide this care. Except in special situations, the majority of people would rather remain in their own home for as long as possible rather than move to a nursing home or other “Institutionalized” setup. While each family and person must consider their own needs and situation, assisted living at Home is the optimal choice for many people.

Our Assisted Living at Home Program represents a new paradigm that allows people to age-in-place, be assisted, while offering peace of mind to their adult children and family members.  It is a true comprehensive model of care that offers a practical alternative to the “Institutionalized” model of care in Facilities and Nursing Homes.

ACP Assisted Living at Home provides services that enable seniors and adults with cognitive, behavioral, and/or Physical challenges, to live safely and comfortably in their own homes and stay connected to their community. We assist those seniors and adults affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, Parkinson’s, ALS, other neurological disorders, and mental illnesses, to live independent and meaningful lives.

We bring a team of experts in aging, Physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapist, Social workers, Registered nurses and wellness together with care providers trained in specific behavioral interventions to enhance our clients’ quality of life.

Live-in care offers the seniors the ability to remain at home with supervision 24 hours per day from a VA certified Home Health aide. It also offers the best economic value for care for anyone requiring more than 8 ½ – 9 hours of care per day.

Live-in caregivers do just as the name sounds; they temporarily stay in the home with the Client. While they are there for 24 hours peer day, they do not work that entire time. They require a place to sleep and put their cloths as well as have time for their own. Food is also provided by the client.

    Here is an example of what a typical day may be like.

  • Wake up in the morning and help their client to get out of bed, bathe and get dressed.
  • Prepare breakfast for both the client and themselves and clean up afterwards.
  • Perform some light housekeeping and laundry before making lunch.
  • After lunch, they may take some time for themselves to relax in their room while the client has company over or naps.
  • Later on they will prepare dinner and then clean up.
  • Afterwards they may again take some personal time for themselves in another room but never leaving the client unattended.
  • Later in the night they will help the client get ready for bed and then retire for the night when they are ready

Basically, they are there for their client without being over bearing. They respect the client’s need for independence, privacy and time alone while making themselves available if needed.
