Finally, it’s also worth looking at the psychological side of deciding to hire live-in carers as being successful. It’s not uncommon for people who employ live-in carers to doubt the decision once it has been made. They might even sabotage the situation by not collaborating with their carer.
In this situation, it is worth working with your loved one’s carer to think up some strategies for helping your loved one accept the decision. It will likely happen organically over time, but it can often be relieved by creating an atmosphere of calm acceptance for all those involved. By showing your loved one that you have accepted the decision, you can model a way for them to conclude that the move is in their best interests.
Ultimately, it’s well worth exploring live-in care if you think your loved one needs it, and there are plenty of ways to ensure that it will be a success. It’s vital, for example, to make sure that you do your research into the sort of company to work with your loved one. If you choose one that embraces technology, has good reviews and is open about its policies and procedures, then the chances of the caring relationship being a success are higher. Similarly, it’s also worth putting in some time to ensure that you and your loved one have the psychological resilience to accept and embrace the decision over time. That can also help the caring get off the ground smoothly.
