Live-in care is when a carer lives with your loved one to provide all the assistance they need to stay in their own home.
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.
The live-in caregiver 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!
Recruiting a small and committed team to work with you is of paramount importance. Your relative will benefit from the familiarity of a main carer who will stay with them for around four to six weeks at a time.
We also introduce a secondary carer, whose role is to relieve the main carer for short periods. We know how important the relationship between carer and client is, and we take pride in the companionships that develop.
Family are reassured when they meet the dedicated care manager who oversees every aspect of their relative’s care. We work closely with you and your relative to adapt our service so that it’s totally personalised to them and their needs. If we need to co-ordinate medical appointments or schedule some home maintenance, then that’s what we will do!
We have access to the very best advice from our team of highly-respected in-house medical professionals, so if specialist care is needed, we make sure your loved one receives the very best.
Our dementia expert is on hand to provide advice and support to both families and carers. Live-in care avoids the upset caused by moving somewhere unfamiliar, and creates a calm and familiar environment.
“I just wanted to say how delighted we are with Anca – she is a real delight!”
“Rita is doing a great job in our eyes and our mother is so happy and relaxed, they have so much in common and seem to have built a lovely relationship.”
“The carer is superb and she is exactly what we wanted. At least we know mum has someone there overnight if she needs anything.”
Choosing live-in care is a huge decision and not something that you should take lightly.
Some of these conversations can be tricky and it’s our job to make sure you feel as comfortable as possible.
We are more than happy to visit you and your family at home to discuss your situation and consider the options available to you.
