How It Works​

A screened caregiver moves into your home

ADL Help At Home Whenever Needed

You don't have to move to a facility for custodial care anymore.

 Grandma Joan has been recruiting and screening premium level live-in caregivers on the private-hire market since 2010. We do nothing else. Our job is to find and screen live-ins who meet your family’s needs. We set you up with a FLSA compliant domestic payroll service to pay them following all state and federal laws. You can even get workers comp insurance for 100% liability protection. True 24/7 peace of mind.  
They work days & are on-call overnight for emergencies

Your Own Private Full-Time Caregiver

Live-ins work 14-16 hours each day then get an unpaid 8 hours off each night.

The wonderful thing about live-in care is that you can get a premium level caregiver for about 1/2 of the rate that an agency will charge for 24 hr home-care. Not only that, but they will sleep over unpaid each night and be on-call just in case they are needed (except in CA). The added bonus with live-in care is that you get one person instead of an agency sending multiple caregivers to cover the same amount of time. This allows for the care recipient and the care provider to bond like family. 


What Are The Requirements To Get A Premium Live-in Caregiver?

You need a spare furnished bedroom
The live-in can sleep solid most nights
You have 5k-8k month for total Peace of mind.
Live-ins need a furnished bedroom to move into. They work up to 16 hours each day and need a place of their "own" in the home. Without  a private space to retreat to, live-ins would burn out very quickly.

The room should have a bed, nightstand, dresser and closet or armoire. Don't forget that you want them to feel like it's their space, so let them move things around if they want!
Live-ins work two 8 hour shifts, back to back each day, then they need to totally unplug for 8 hrs to sleep soundly and recharge...before they do it all again the next day. 

They will get up to help if needed for a night bathroom visit, and always in an emergency during the night. That's one of the great benefits of a live-in. Emergency help there every night if ever needed.
Long term care is very expensive. To make matters worse, Medicare and health insurance doesn't pay for it. The average cost of a bed in a nursing home is 8k per month, and that's with a staff to resident ratio of 1 to 15. 24/7 hourly home care is 15k per month in most states.

We offer a Premium 1 on 1 alternative to these two custodial care models, while honoring your parent's wishes of staying in their own home as they age.
