Live-In Care:Who the Heck are the Newfoundland Ladies?Posted Feb 24, 2015
Our live-in caregivers can bring the warmth back into a quiet home. They will spend their days and sleep their nights in your home; providing home-cooked meals, housekeeping, assistance with personal care; pet care; and outings.
Commonly referred to as the Newfoundland Ladies, Always Home’s live-in home care provides around the clock care to those who need it most. It is an affordable alternative to clients who wish to keep their loved ones in their homes but do require someone with them 24/7. Your loved ones will have the comfort of consistency, and the opportunity to build a wonderful relationship with their live-in caregiver.
They do all the housekeeping, laundry, prepare the meals and help with personal care, among other things. Our helpful live-in companions help our clients, and their families, feel safer knowing someone else in the house, even just to sit and watch the television with them, play a game of crib, or fix them a cup tea. It is especially important at night when they fear having to get up in the dark for some reason and falling with no one there for them.
Our Newfoundland ladies are considered “4th level” homemakers – most do not have formal training but many, many years of experience in looking after seniors, we like to say they’ve been trained in life – perhaps one of the most valuable forms of training! Always Home is very diligent when it comes to checking references and no employee is ever put to work until a Criminal Reference Check is completed. We are also bonded and take homecare very seriously. We play a very hands-on role with our clients and our workers and feel that as long as we treat our workers with kindness and respect, it will naturally filter down to our clients.
Live-in care can be a long term solution or short term coverage while family goes on vacation, we can flexibliy work to meet the needs of you and your loved ones. To learn more and to book your free, no-obligation assessment contact us today!
