CareDiem Home Care provides non-medical caregiving services on a Live-In basis.

Our goal is for the caregivers to assist clients in maintaining their normal daily routines while aging in place. This is achieved by assisting and supporting clients with their ADLs (Activities of Daily Living) and IADLs (Instrumental Activities of Daily Living). Live-In services are charged by the day.

In order to qualify for live-in services, all of the following conditions and expectations must be met:

Break Time:

In accordance with Illinois labor laws, the caregiver is required to have at least three (3) one-hour breaks during the day and eight (8) hours of personal time at night.

During the combined eleven (11) hours of break and personal time in a twenty-four (24) hour period, the caregiver must be free from all duties in caring for and assisting the Client. If free time is not possible due to Client needs, alternate arrangements can be made by contacting an CDHC Supervisor.

Sleeping Arrangements:

A private room or area with a bed must be provided for the live-in caregiver. If client’s apartment/home cannot accommodate these requests, client will not qualify for live-in services. In these cases, hourly services will be provided.

Food and Beverage:

Clients are to provide a meal allowance for the live-in caregiver. This meal allowance will be charged in the monthly invoice. Clients do not need to provide food for live-in caregivers when a meal allowance is paid. Clients should not give the caregivers a meal allowance directly and there should be no exchange of money between clients and the caregivers.

Around the Clock 24 Hourly Care

The client does not qualify for live-in services if the needs are unpredictable, if the caregiver is needed at night, if the client is an elopement risk, or unable to be left alone. In such instances, CareDiem Home Care can provide around the clock care.
