You always have our High Care Case Managers and Registered Nurses to guide and assist you. There is always a High Care Case Manager available on the phone, around-the-clock – 24/7.

Our Private Registered Nurses are also on-hand. They can visit whenever you or the elderly client need them.

Daughterly Care’s Live in Carers tell us that live-in home care is an ideal way of working and caring for elderly people because it enables maximum assistance and support at any time to:

  • enable and support a person who is frail or living with forgetfulness or a dementia to live a full and joyful life;
  • re-enable an elderly person after an illness or fall;
  • re-enable and support an Elder to improve wellness after spending time in hospital or rehabilitation;
  • assist an elderly person to return home after spending time in a Nursing Home on respite or a placement that is no longer going ahead;
  • provide in-home care and re-enabling support, and
  • provide palliative and End of Life care in the elderly client’s home.

The term ‘Live in Care’ can be misleading

If you are not familiar with the term ‘live-in care’, it might imply to you that you live permanently with the elderly client and therefore you don’t need your own home  – however, nothing could be further from the truth.

All Daughterly Care Live in Carers maintain their own homes that they return to each week when not working.

Our Live in Carers tell us:

  • which days of the week they ideally wish to work;
  • the number of days per week they ideally wish to work to fit in with their own family commitments, typically from 2 to 4 days per week (sometimes we can roster 7 to 10 days on/off);

…and then we match your Live in Carer skillset and days available to clients, who you can best assist.

Tip: If you are looking to maximise your savings, we can recommend low cost clean accommodation on Sydney’s North Shore.

Live in Carers are exceptionally experienced

Seniors who require live-in, around the clock, 24 hours – 7 days per week inhome care and who have high care needs or conditions that require a Live in Carer with extensive aged care experience. So not only do you need ‘well above average care skills and aged care experience’, you need ‘well above average communication abilities’ to liaise with their family and your Daughterly Care High Care Case Manager and Doctors.

That said, our Live in Carers tell us Live in Care provides the highest level of inhome care that elders need; a level of private nursing care that can’t be provided in a Nursing Home because the staffing ratios are just too low, creating unnecessary friction between families and care workers, due to expectations not being physically met.

By contrast, Daughterly Care Live in Carers are held in high regard and are appreciated for their kind, thoughtful, caring ways; for their devotion to the client’s well-being and their ability to enable more joyful living where clients feel safest and most comfortable; in their own home.

Our Live in Carers deliver exceptional private nursing care and aged care support to Elderly people, which is uniquely tailored to the senior client’s needs and lifestyle. Elders and their families are extremely appreciative of this level of attentive personalised care. There simply is no better way of living your remaining years, months and days than in your own home with Daughterly Care’s Live in Care.
