What are the main reasons that people don’t choose live-in home care as an option?
Cost is the most common factor, since it is possible to find assisted living facilities that are less expensive than live-in care. Also, some families don’t feel comfortable having someone stay with them all of the time. What they often don’t realize is that professional live-in assistants are very sensitive to families’ emotional reactions to their presence, and will be as unobtrusive as possible. The agency can also schedule someone on an hourly basis to start with, moving to live-in care later on, if requested.
