A live-in carer takes care of a variety of duties. As such, you’ll handle the most basic tasks to some of the most difficult duties.
This will depend on the client you’re working with. For example, imagine that a client is paralysed from the waist down. They can’t move their lower extremities, which means that they can’t walk and are, most likely, bound to a wheelchair.
As their caregiver, you’ll need to help them with mobility around the house and out in public. You might also need to help them perform day-to-day activities such as cleaning, taking care of personal care needs – i.e. brushing teeth, combing hair, dressing, bathing, preparing meals.
There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to live-in care. At Lifted, we strive to provide clients with the most personalised care so that they can achieve a higher quality of life.
