A Live-In provides the appropriate level of personal care and support services for clients who need the security of another person in their homes throughout the day, but do not require constant shifts of care. “Live-Ins” provides safety and companionship under reasonable work conditions.
If a client needs a “Live-In” seven days a week, usually two to three Caregivers will serve 2-5 consecutive days each week. As much as possible,StayInHome Healthcare Inc. strives to keep the same Caregivers on regular and consistent schedules.
However, there may be times and circumstances out of our control that require us to place different Assistant(s) in and as a result, StayInHome Healthcare Inc. is not able to guarantee 100% coverage of care 100% of the time.
Federal and State Labor laws do apply with Live-Ins and monitored closely as follows:
► Caregiver must have a private room / private quarters.To perform Live-In Services, a private room is needed for the Assistant’s belongings during the live-in days they are assigned. The room should include at least a twin size bed for the Assistant to sleep each night.
► Caregiver MUST have 6 hours of sleep, 5 of which must be uninterrupted sleep.
Your Assistant is able to get up once in the night to attend to your needs.However, if they are awakened two or more times in an evening, laws require that the Caregiver is paid hourly through the night instead of the daily rate.
► Caregivers are entitled to 3 meal hours per day and should be able to have the ability to take that time off site if they decide to do so.
► The client should be able to be left alone for at least an hour or so, should the Caregiver choose to take the break(s) outside the home.

Overnight care provides the opportunity for the primary caregiver to take a break and get a good nights rest.
A Caregiver will be at your home for 8 to 12 hours throughout the night to ensure that bathroom visits, sleep walking, wandering or other activity that should be supervised to ensure health & safety.
Peace of mind is what the primary caregiver gets, knowing the care is covered while they get a solid, and often badly needed, good nights sleep.
Typically the Caregiver will read a book, watch television quietly, or some kind of quiet hobby (eg. quilt, laptop computer, etc), readily available as soon as any activity is seen or heard.
This service is basically “Senior Sitting” where the activities are often minimal and/or limited to how often the individual wakes each night and what the needs are when awake.
