My experience with this family was great. The parents were kind all the time, the father picked me up at the airport and was so nice. I met the mother later because she was working and she has always a smile in her face. The father was working in another city so I lived mainly with the mother and the kids. The kids were so welcoming. They enjoyed learning Spanish and whatever doubt or word the wanted to know they asked me. The laugh, play and enjoyed out time together. Because other circumstances my stay had to end but I enjoyed my time with all of them.

Why 24-hour care at home?

Moving away as a senior is difficult to imagine for most people. A survey has shown that around 75% of senior citizens would like to be cared for within their own home, if possible, even if they need nursing care. These are the advantages of an in-home 24-hour care:

Senior home care allows elderly people to remain in their familiar environment, where they feel safe. This helps to maintain their quality of life.

Through individualized care at home, seniors receive support tailored to their specific needs and preferences. There are no standardized procedures as in nursing homes, but personalized care that responds to the individual.

Senior care at home allows older people to maintain their independence and autonomy as much as possible. They can continue to make their own decisions and organize their everyday life according to their wishes.

Care at home ensures continuous and reliable support. There are no constant changes of caregivers, as can be the case in some nursing facilities. This creates a familiar relationship between caregiver and senior, which leads to higher satisfaction.

Senior in-home care offers the flexibility to adjust care services to meet the senior's changing needs. The hours of care, the range of services and the duration of care can be customized.

In-home care allows seniors to continue socializing. They can meet their family, friends and neighbors on a regular basis and stay active in their community which is important for their mental and emotional health.

Loneliness is a serious problem among elderly people. In-home care helps reduce loneliness because the caregiver provides a constant presence and companionship. This can greatly improve seniors' well-being and enjoyment of life.

With in-home care, potentially dangerous situations can be identified and avoided in time. The caregiver can ensure that the senior is safe, takes medications properly and receives immediate assistance when needed.

Home care allows seniors to maintain their familiar daily routines. This promotes their sense of normality and stability, which is especially important for people with dementia or cognitive impairment.

Caring for elderlies in their own homes is usually less expensive than paying for a nursing home.

Senior Caregiver

Senior Caregiver
In a so-called "24-hour senior care," it is common for the person providing care to live in the house or apartment of the senior in need of care and be present at all times. Often, these caregivers are from abroad and do not have formal nursing training. Their assistance provides intensive and comprehensive care in the senior's own home, which in many cases is an alternative to a nursing home. However, it is misleading to use the term "24-hour" because even a 24-hour caregiver works only from 40 up to 48 hours per week.
 
In this program, it is a work occupation that allows for cultural exchange. However, the focus is on the professional relationship between the caregiver and the senior.
