Los Angeles is a wonderful city to grow up in, and it’s an even better city to grow old in, which is why nearly 102,000 individuals over the age of 65 still live in the greater L.A. area. Just as there are plenty of entertainment, medical, and restaurant options for seniors in the area, so too are there a multitude of senior care choices.
If you have aging concerns for a loved one, you’re probably looking for solutions as quickly as possible. LivHOME’s in-home care agency in Los Angeles is a great option for families whose loved ones aren’t quite ready to make the jump to a senior living community.
What Does an In-Home Care Agency in L.A. Do?
First it’s important to understand the types of services home care agencies such as LivHOME can provide. Our in-home care services are performed by our professional Caregivers right at your loved one’s home, so there’s no need to transport your loved one to a care facility. Our senior Caregivers are capable of helping you and your senior with daily tasks such as laundry, meal prep, transportation, medication management and more. The home care agency’s job is to make sure the Caregiver provides the services you and your loved one need. At LivHOME, we call this Care Management.
LivHOME’s Los Angeles location (along with all of our other locations) oversees the following:
- Caregiver recruitment, screening and hiring
- Caregiver training and supervision
- Caregiver placement and assignment
Our agency makes it a point to help our Caregivers familiarize themselves with the Los Angeles area and all it has to offer for seniors. For example, we ensure our Care Managers are knowledgeable about local medical facilities, clinics and emergency rooms in the event that your loved one needs to visit them. Part of our in-home care services include senior companionship which often entails your senior and their Caregiver heading out into town and enjoying a movie or a meal.
Why Choose a Home Care Agency
Choosing a professional home care agency is a more convenient solution as opposed to other senior care options. With LivHOME, there’s no need to pay your Caregiver directly, which saves you time and headache! Each Caregiver is also fully insured and bonded to the company — which is a trait you won’t find when looking for freelance senior care services on sites like Craigslist. You can be sure that your Caregiver is fully trained and qualified with previous industry-related experience to handle all your family’s needs.
