What is a live-in carer?

A live-in carer is a professional caregiver who provides round-the-clock support and assistance to individuals in their own homes. They reside with the person receiving care, ensuring continuous care and companionship. Live-in carers are typically trained and experienced in providing various types of care, including personal care, household tasks and sometimes even medical support.

The responsibilities of a live-in carer can vary based on the individual’s needs. They may help with daily living activities such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation, medication reminders and mobility assistance. Additionally, they can provide emotional support, engage in social activities and accompany the individual to appointments or outings.

Live-in carers promote independence and dignity while ensuring a safe and comfortable living environment. Their presence can provide peace of mind to both the individual and their family, as they receive dedicated care and support within the familiar surroundings of their own home.
