The FCP Live-In Caregiver Approach to Senior Care | There’s No Place Like Home
It’s an established fact that most people want to remain at home as they age. After all, home is where we build our families, make precious memories, keep our most cherished possessions and pets, and visit with family and friends whenever we like. Assisted living facilities are not always the best solution and a home health aides may not provide enough support especially when dementia-related illnesses are involved. If the thought of placing mom or dad in a long-term care facility fills you with dread and anxiety, FCP Live-in can help.
FCP Live-In caregivers provide all of the services you might expect from a typical assisted living facility, but the one-on-one relationship offers so much more!
Our caregivers create a “safe place” in the home. During waking hours, they provide personal care, homemaking services, and companionship appropriate to each client’s unique needs. At night, they’re available to provide assistance should the need arise. FCP Live-In can provide live-in home care at every stage of the aging process, and in coordination with your loved one’s primary care physicians, preferred home health agency, and other medical providers. Our flat, daily rate covers all personal care needs, and is usually more cost-effective than the rates charged by nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or hourly home care agencies.
But live-in care has other benefits. It frees your loved one from the strict regimens and visiting hours typical of long-term care facilities. There will always be someone available to contact help in an emergency, and the close interaction with the live-in caregiver and the family means even subtle changes in their physical or cognitive condition won’t go undetected.

With a live-in caregiver, your loved one won’t wait hours to use the bathroom or receive other personal care assistance, and they’ll be able to eat, sleep, and watch TV on their own schedule. Their live-in caregiver will see that all medications are taken on time and in the correct dosage; ensure adequate hydration; provide escorts to medical appointments, worship services, and social engagements; and assist with light housekeeping, laundry, and shopping.
Because they’ll only be caring for one client, our caregiver will also have more time to engage in friendly conversation and assist with gardening, scrapbooking, or other hobbies. All of our care plans also include “Living Well,” an exclusive calendar-based program of engaging, relationship-building daily activities designed to encourage a true sense of companionship between client and caregiver.
The Cost: Paying for Long-Term Care
No one really likes to think about growing older, or the fact that long-term care might become necessary as they age. But according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, there’s a 70% chance that individuals currently turning 65 will need long-term care at some point in their lives.
Long-term care can be extremely expensive, ranging from an average of $68 per day for adult day care services to about $253 per day for a skilled nursing home. The actual cost will depend on the type of care required, the provider, and the area where you live.
That is why we made FCP Live-In is the affordable alternative to an assisted living facility and one of the best options in senior care. Plus the added benefit 1-on-1 interaction that is not only mentally beneficial but also socially engaging with added benefits. This type of care makes it easy to catch the little things that might be missed by an assisted living facility or part-time home health aide.

Our Caregivers: The FCP Live-In in-depth caregiver screening and our “Harmony Match” guarantee System
At FCP Live-In, we believe in a holistic approach to senior care, with every caregiver carefully selected to meet each client’s unique physical, mental, and emotional needs.
We recruit caregivers nationwide and limit our candidate pool to credentialed Certified Nursing Assistance, Personal Care Assistants, and Home Health Aides with at least three years of experience. We conduct state and federal background checks for every new hire and require each candidate to complete a personality and skills assessment to ensure they’ll be able to meet our high-quality standards.
Our exclusive “Harmony Match” system begins with an expert care coordinator – either a social worker or geriatric care manager – coming to the home to gain a thorough understanding of your loved one’s physical, mental, and psychological needs, along with their sleeping habits, favorite foods and TV shows, hobbies and interests, and spiritual beliefs. Once complete, the FCP Live-In operations department uses the results of this exhaustive intake to identify the best possible candidate from our Harmony Match database.
Before the assignment is finalized, your care coordinator and potential caregiver will travel to your loved one’s home for a personal introduction and to ensure we’ve found the perfect match. We also offer a 5-day opt-out period once a caregiver is in place, just in case you decide live-in care really isn’t for you.
Our Caregivers: A Commitment to offering Quality Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care
More than 15 million Americans are currently caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Taking care of someone with dementia is never easy. In fact, doing so requires a great deal of experience, training, and understanding on the part of the caregiver. At FCP Live-In we understand dementia-related issues and how best to deliver person-centered dementia care. That is why all of our caregivers go through a Dementia/Alzheimer’s training program created by the Alzheimer’s Association-Habilitation Therapy. All of this is framed by our one-to-one caregiver to client attention. Our caregiver’s attention is always focused on one person at all times. No distractions from other individuals or events, just 1-to-1 Person-Centered Dementia Care.
