A live-in aide is a person who lives in the home of the person receiving the assistance. Depending on the circumstances, this aide may be a child or spouse who can work full-time but has limited or no experience in providing personal care. A live-in aide may also reside in several households. In most cases, the live-in aide will provide assistance in the home. However, it is important to note that a caregiver’s employment will depend on whether or not the employer provides insurance coverage.
