ADIA provides both 24 Hour Care services and Live-In Care services for critical care and long term care clients.
What is 24 Hour Care? 24 Hour Care is when two caregivers are assigned to a client and each caregiver works a 12 hour shift per day for seven days or less if needed. At ADIA, our 24 Hour Care service requires that our caregivers (Personal Care Assistants) remain awake, alert and ready to assist at anytime during their work shift. Pricing will vary on the level of care needed and is based on an hourly rate.
What is Live-In Care? Live-In Care is when a caregiver stays in your home for 24 hours and sleeps at night. Depending on the level of care needed, the caregiver usually works anywhere from 8-10 hours per day and is available to assist during the night if needed. At ADIA, our Live-In service includes two caregivers (Personal Care Assistants) one for the weekday and one for the weekend. We do have a daily rate for live-in service.
When is this level of care needed? In most situations, Live-In Care or 24 Hour Care is needed during critical care times. This can happen when your loved one is stricken with a degenerative condition such as a stroke or Alzheimer’s disease or has been recently discharged from a hospital. During this time, it may become impossible for you to take care of yourself and a loved one without the assistance of another person.
At ADIA our Personal Care Assistants for these types of services are usually Certified Nurse Assistants (CNAs), Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVNs), Registered Nurses (RNs), Nursing students, Medical Assistants (MAs), Home Health Aides (HHAs) or non-certified caregivers with a minimum of 10 years of professional work experience. They are skilled, trained and compassionate. All of our Personal Care Assistants are supervised by an ADIA Friendship Care Coordinator that is available to the family 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If you are still unsure on what level of service to choose, allow ADIA to provide a free needs assessment for your loved one to help determine what type of service is needed.
