Live in care provides a straightforward and realistic alternative to residential care. For many, live in care is the preferred option, as it allows greater flexibility, as well as the opportunity to build a one-to-one relationship with your care worker, all within the comfort of your own home. For those who require more extensive physical and emotional support, live-in care may be the solution.
Live in carers can help with aspects of personal care, domestic support and meal preparation, as well as providing companionship and reassurance with day to day life. Structured around a flexible care plan, the carer will typically be available between 7:00 am and 10:00pm at night. Your live in carers are only expected to do 8 or 9 hours work a day, but are always on hand in case of emergencies. In circumstances where a live in carer would require extra breaks, we are able to provide additional support. We will agree when the carer will take breaks in the day and if necessary arrange for a second carer to support for period in the day.
We can arrange for a carer to stay for 4 weeks, or arrange for 2 carers to rotate on a regular basis. Live-In Care is an ideal solution for those requiring constant companionship and/or personal care on an on-going basis, all within the familiarity of your or your loved one's own home.
