Florida FL | FCP Live-In “Live-In Home Care”
FCP Live-In “Live-In Home Care” Offers Services in Florida
Warm temperatures, plenty of sunshine, and popular tourist attractions all contribute to making Florida one of the top travel destinations in the United States.
Surrounded by the Straits of Florida, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic Ocean, Florida gives visitors opportunities for swimming, fishing, boating, and other water activities. The Sunshine State also has 1,350 miles of coastline, dotted by 825 miles of sandy beaches enjoyed by families, campers, nature lovers, dog owners, and everyone else in between.
The state also tops the list of popular entertainment venues, with Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista being the No. 1 tourist attraction, followed by Universal Orlando Resort in Orlando. Kennedy Space Center, Everglades National Park, aquariums, sporting events, and other exciting activities round out a things-to-do list in Florida.
With all the makings of paradise, Florida is not only a place where visitors experience new adventures, it’s also a place where many older adults choose to live. According to the 2020 U.S. Census, 1 in 5 people in Florida are age 65 or older. In addition, Florida, with a population of 21.5 million, has the second-largest share of people 65 and over (20.9 percent), just behind Maine, which has the largest share with 21.2 percent.
The consistent growth of Florida’s older adult population brings challenges for seniors, especially those who want to age in place in their own homes or a retirement community but need help in caring for themselves. This comes at a time when the country faces a shortage of professional caregivers. Many seniors are now relying on family or friends to voluntarily help them with their daily living activities.
FCP Live-In, which has built a legacy in the Northeast as a leading live-in home care provider, plans to answer the call for caregivers by expanding its affordable live-in care services to Florida.
FCP Live-In: Who We Are
FCP Live-In has been providing customized live-in care services to seniors across New England since 1997. Our full-service agency gives older adults a sense of security and their family members peace of mind knowing that professional caregivers are living with their loved ones and providing compassionate 1-on-1 personal care. We serve as an alternative for seniors worried about moving into an assisted living facility or nursing home in order to have someone care for them.
Our caregivers are Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), Home Health Aides (HHAs), and Personal Care Assistants (PCAs) who have at least two years of professional caregiving experience. Our highly skilled live-in caregivers are certified and trained to perform the same services as the staff provides at an assisted living facility or nursing home.
At FCP Live-In, we have an exclusive process that allows us to carefully screen and hire caregivers who would be a perfect match for our clients and can meet their unique needs. Not only do we conduct state and national background checks, but we require applicants to undergo personality tests and a round of interviews. We only hire individuals who are committed to providing quality care and complying with the high standards established by FCP Live-In.
To ensure that live-in caregivers provide quality care and seniors are getting what they need, FCP Live-in supervisors visit the homes of our clients to check on them and their caregivers.
Just as our live-in caregivers support older adults’ desire to live independently, we support our caregiving staff with ongoing training to help them provide the best service possible to our clients. Training is of vital importance since FCP Live-In offers a wide range of services for seniors with various health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, cerebral palsy, depression, diabetes, stroke, and Parkinson’s disease.
Our live-in caregivers also provide compassionate care to seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. We also provide end-of-life care and coordinate care with hospice programs. The emotional support our live-in caregivers provide at sensitive times like these is priceless.
FCP Live-In: Services We Provide
FCP Live-In provides a broad range of services. For example, our live-in caregivers:
- Help clients bathe, dress, and groom
- Help transfer clients from their bed to their wheelchairs
- Help clients with toileting and incontinence care
- Plan and prepare nutritious meals based on dietary guidelines
- Perform light housekeeping duties, such as sweeping and mopping floors, dusting, cleaning bathrooms, washing dishes, and vacuuming
- Shop for groceries
- Run errands
- Take clients to medical appointments
FCP Live-In caregivers are a bright spot in the lives of our clients, especially those who find themselves battling loneliness and isolation. Our clients appreciate the emotional support and companionship that live-in caregivers provide through meaningful conversations, social activities, and helping them stay in contact with family and friends. Our live-in caregivers help seniors socialize and remain active in their community.
FCP Live-In: An Affordable Alternative to Residential Living
FCP Live-In clients benefit by having a live-in caregiver to provide one-on-one care in their homes right when they need it rather than waiting their turn for help as they would in an assistant living facility or long-term care facility.
With an FCP Live-In caregiver, clients can go about their daily routines and not have to conform to a schedule established by a senior living facility with a rotating staff. Most importantly, our live-in caregivers are supportive in the event of an emergency and are so acquainted with our clients that they will notice subtle health changes that might be missed by rotating staff at a long-term facility.
Look To FCP Live-In For Quality Care
FCP Live-In has a 24-hour professional support system that starts with our direct care staff in the home and expands out to a multi-faceted corporate structure that is there for the client and the live-in caregiver at all times.
FCP Live-In’s proven support system and years of service in New England have provided an insurance policy of safe and secure care for our clients and their family members. As a result of our legacy, FCP Live-In can make the dream of aging in place in Florida become a reality.
