What is live-in care?

Having a live-in carer means that our clients can continue to enjoy life on their own terms.

Live-in care is an increasingly popular alternative to residential care, as it allows your loved one to keep control of their life.

If living alone or with a partner is becoming increasingly difficult, we can provide that little bit of extra support they need to maintain as much of their independence as possible.

  • What does live-in care involve?

    The live-in home carer manages everything that needs to be done in the home. They take care of the housekeeping, shopping, and cooking, and are extremely respectful when providing the personal care needed to maintain a dignified and fulfilling life.

    If your loved one wants to get out in the fresh air, or visit friends, we will arrange that too!

    What are the benefits of live-in care?

    Live-in care boasts countless benefits and is much preferred by our clients than moving into a residential care home. Here are just some of the benefits you can experience when using our live-in care services:

    • Familiar surroundings – by staying in the comfort of your own home, you’re surrounded by beloved pets, loved ones and memories. This can all contribute to your overall happiness.
    • Maintain independence – you can continue to live your life the way you want with live-in care. We work to your schedule and preferences, so you don’t have to worry about changing routines or stopping doing things you enjoy.
    • Couples can stay together – you won’t have to worry about moving into a residential care home and being separated from your partner. You can both receive live-in care simultaneously, saving money. 
    • Quality one-to-one care – the level of care and attention you receive from our live-in care service is far greater than you would get from residential care. You receive a specialised care plan and a dedicated carer who is only there to support you – no one else!
    • Companionship – we match you with a carer who’ll quickly become your close companion. This way, you’ll no longer have to feel lonely or isolated and have someone to share memories and hobbies with.
