FCP Live-In Helps Seniors In The Nantucket Area With All Of Their Caregiving Needs

For being a small town, Nantucket has a large number of loyal visitors who come each year to the popular tourist destination. The elbow-shaped Massachusetts island, located about 30 miles south of Cape Cod, boasts fine restaurants, shops, museums, and beautiful beaches. But that’s not all.

Nantucket is forever etched in American literature as the town featured in the classic novel, Moby Dick by Herman Melville. Nantucket was the capital of the whaling industry when the fictional work was published in 1851. To this day, the island remains one of the top fishing destinations in the nation.

Nantucket has a year-round population of 11,000 that rises to about 50,000 when seasonal residents and tourists of all ages return in the summer. Of the town’s current population, residents over 60 years old make up 20 percent of the community. What’s more, older adults are expected to make up 25 percent of the population by the year 2030, according to projections by the University of Massachusetts’ Donahue Institute.

With the projected increase in the senior population, Nantucket’s older adult residents may need help as they age in place. And when they do, FCP Live-In will be there to help them.

Who We Are

FCP Live-In is a live-in caregiver agency that assists older adults who want to live independently in their own home but need help with daily living activities. For over 20 years, our full-service agency has helped seniors in Nantucket age in place so that they can remain in the community that they love.

Many older adults in Nantucket want to live in their homes for as long as possible. FCP Live-In helps them reach this goal by providing live-in caregivers who are trained and have years of experience assisting seniors with dementia, stroke, heart disease, and other chronic health conditions, and those with mobility difficulties.

At FCP Live-In, we provide assurance to our clients that our Certified Nursing Assistants, Home Health Aides, and Personal Care Assistants provide quality care and uphold the standards of our agency.

We conduct a rigorous state and national background check and conduct multiple rounds of interviews with caregiver candidates who have the highest potential for the job. And, this is not all. Candidates that we feel have potential must undergo and pass a skills assessment, and attend a full-day orientation where their capabilities and attitude are further evaluated by our staff.

What We Do

FCP Live-In caregivers provide a wide range of services needed by some Nantucket residents. A survey on aging in Nantucket conducted by the University of Massachusetts-Boston (UMass Boston) found that 19 percent of respondents between 70-79 years old, and 38 percent of respondents 80 years old and older said, because of their health, they need help with housekeeping duties.

Respondents to UMass Boston’s Center for Social & Demographic Research on Aging Gerontology Institute survey also said they need help with housekeeping duties, with their personal needs, and with running errands around town.

Our live-in caregivers can meet these needs since we provide services that include:

  • Helping older adults with bathing, dressing, grooming, toileting assistance, and other daily living activities
  • Making beds, cleaning bathrooms, dusting, vacuuming, doing laundry, grocery shopping, preparing and cooking nutritious meals, and helping to feed clients who have difficulty feeding themselves

Most importantly, our live-in caregivers provide the companionship that many seniors need. The survey found that 1 in 4 Nantucket seniors live alone, and some respondents faced challenges due to lack of transportation, specifically with off-island medical appointments.

Our caregivers provide purposeful engagements with our clients as well as provide transportation to and from medical appointments, shopping, and to community activities. We help seniors who live alone socialize and remain active in their community.

At FCP Live-In, we provide the same type of services and more, as those provided in assisted living facilities or nursing homes at a more affordable cost. Unlike long-term care facilities that have frequent staff turnover, our consistent caregivers are able to establish a one-on-one, trusting relationship with our clients.
