FCP Live-In Helps Seniors In The Martha’s Vineyard Area With All Of Their Caregiving Needs
Mention Martha’s Vineyard, and the words, “fun,” “vacation,” “beauty,” “history” and “weddings” come to mind. It is said that Martha’s Vineyard is second only to Las Vegas as a popular wedding destination. Located on the southeastern coast of Massachusetts and just seven miles south of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard has something for people of all ages and walks of life. Newlyweds, families, celebrities, and former U.S. presidents are spotted on the island to partake of all that Martha’s Vineyard has to offer. The island has a population of about 17,000 year-round residents, and the number jumps to nearly 200,000 each summer, which attests to Martha’s Vineyard being among the top tourist destinations in the nation.
The Martha’s Vineyard island is expected to see another growth over the next decade, not in summer tourists, but in adults over 65. According to figures from Healthy Aging Martha’s Vineyard, an organization dedicated to helping older adults, the over-65 population is projected to grow over the next three decades. By the year 2030, the organization’s population figures show that 1 in 3 island residents will be over 65 years old. Beyond that, the over-65 population is projected to grow from 6,308 in 2030 to 7,258 by 2050. The growth in this population means that seniors who want to age in place may need daily support to continue living independently in their own homes. And, if they do, long-term Martha Vineyard residents can receive the support they need from FCP Live-In home care agency.
FCP Live-In: Who We Are
FCP Live-In is a full-service live-in home care agency committed to helping older adults achieve their goal of living successfully in their own homes for as long as possible. Many times when older adults begin to have trouble taking care of themselves, they, or their family members, assume that it’s time for them to move into a long-term care facility. FCP Live-In offers an alternative.
With our highly trained staff of dedicated live-in caregivers, older adults can rely on getting help with their daily routines. Our caregivers include Certified Nursing Assistants, Home Health Aides, and Personal Care Assistants who have been extremely vetted before being hired. We conduct thorough state and national background checks on our applicants, a round of interviews, and attend a 2-day orientation to ensure that we are getting employees who are committed to upholding the standards of our agency.
While our live-in caregivers have two or more years of caregiving experience, we also provide our employees with ongoing training in order for them to improve their caregiving skills. Continual training is important because our live-in caregivers care for older adults with a variety of health conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and Parkinson’s disease.
We Provide Comprehensive Services
FCP Live-In caregivers provide a variety of comprehensive services that includes helping clients with bathing, dressing, grooming, preparing and service meals based on the client’s dietary requirements, and doing light housekeeping tasks.
Getting around the island may be difficult for older adults who do not have their own transportation, or use wheelchairs, or have mobility issues. Our live-in caregivers can resolve these issues by providing transportation to and from medical appointments, social events, and other activities. In addition, caregivers also run errands and shop for groceries for our clients.
This is not all we do. Companionship is a major component of the service we provide. Older adults, especially those who live alone, appreciate having someone to interact with on a daily basis, and provide social and emotional support.
Live-In Home Care As An Affordable Option
The cost for an FCP Live-In caregiver is usually more affordable than the monthly costs of an assisted living facility or nursing home. Living facilities for older adults have various fees for different services and the costs can become expensive over time. Having live-in caregivers to provide the same services as staff at an assisted living facility will be more cost-effective for many seniors, particularly those who would prefer aging in place in their own homes.
Our live-in caregiver staff provides an insurance policy of safe and supportive care, along with 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.
