Delivering live in and 24-hour care in Westbury
What is Live-In Care?
Live-in care where a fully trained carer will move into your house and live with you or a loved one in order to support you or your loved one’s needs on a daily basis.
24 Hour care and support
In some circumstances, a much greater level of support is needed than daily visits or live-in care can provide. At Saxon Care, we’re able to structure packages to ensure your loved ones are supported and their needs are met, even up to 24 hours a day.
We are able to source additional training to work with clients who have more complex needs, to ensure they are cared for professionally and safely, giving you peace of mind in the knowledge your loved ones are safe and well in the comfort of their own home.
What are the benefits of live-in care?
On hand throughout the day
A live-in carer would be on hand throughout the day to assist with any tasks that you or a loved one might have, as well as providing reassurance and companionship.
Help with things around the house
Live-in carers can help not just with specific care needs, but more general day to day things around the house too. Whether you need support with personal care, assistance with washing and dressing or bathing, help with medication or even more specific care needs, live-in carers are on hand and here to help whenever you need them. There are also lots of day to day tasks that can sometimes become a bit more difficult as we get older, which a live-in carer can help with too. More general tasks such as help with cooking meals, housekeeping and light domestic help such as vacuuming, ironing or doing the dishes, running errands, helping with grocery shopping, support getting to and from appointments and even walking the dog or feeding pets are all things that a live-in carer can help make easier for you or your loved ones.
Greater flexibility to go about daily life
Another fantastic benefit to live-in care is that having a carer on hand throughout the day allows for much greater flexibility to go about daily life. Whether that’s having a live-in on the weekends, eating dinner at different times of the day or arranging appointments for whenever you like, your live-in care package is flexible around your needs. Friends and family don’t need to rely on visiting hours to come and see you and your support can change, with your live-in carer helping as much or as little as you would like them to on any given day.
Peace of mind
A live-in carer also provides a huge amount of peace of mind. Knowing that someone is on hand throughout the day, or there to provide extra reassurance at night, you can sleep soundly knowing that your loved ones are being looked after.
Stay in the comfort of your own home
Live-in care is a fantastic alternative to a residential home, or moving to supported accommodation as you or your loved ones can stay in the comfort of your own home, holding on to all the incredible memories that your house holds for you.
One of the other benefits to live in care is the companionship that it brings. Often when someone is living alone, or not being able to get out and about as much as possible, they can become quite socially isolated. A live in carer allows you to spend more time one on one with someone on a regular basis in comparison to other alternatives like residential care and form a lasting friendship along the way.
Is live-in care for me?
Live-in care is suitable for anyone who thinks that they may benefit from some extra help and support, with the flexibility of someone being on hand throughout the day. Live-in carers can offer support to either one adult or a couple living together.
In order to know a live-in carer would be right for you or your loved ones, there are some things to consider and some questions to think about, such as are they safe and well in the comfort of their home.
