Live-in care is a bespoke care solution which enables you, or your loved one, to remain in the familiar surroundings of your own home. Our live-in carers can help with domestic tasks such as cooking and cleaning and also provide help with personal care such as getting dressed, bathing, medication, dementia care, mobility care and companionship. Live in care promotes independence and allows individuals to remain in control of their lifestyle.
We can cater for a wide variety of conditions including dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, MS, strokes, mobility as well as, simply providing support so that you can remain living safely in the comfort of your own home.
Why not try live-in care before opting for a nursing home or residential home, such a move involves huge upheaval and stress and is often a decision which once taken, is very difficult to reverse.
While there is little in the way of positive news regarding the Covid 19 pandemic it has served to highlighted the importance of the live-in carer role and the truly wonderful work that carers do. Live-in carers have never been more important and they allow people to remain living in the safety and comfort of their own homes and are a real alternative to moving into a nursing or care home.
Throughout this ongoing pandemic, care homes more than any other type of social care provision have become synonymous with higher than average infection and death rates. The combination of older, frail and often already unwell people sharing communal living space has shone a spotlight on the limitations of care and nursing homes.
What is Live in Care?
As the name suggests 'live-in care' involves a carer living in your home, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are there to support and assist in your daily routine.
Carers generally stay with a client for
between 6-8 weeks at a time and we rotate carers so that there total
continuity and no gap between carers.
We aim to build a team of 2 or 3 carers that match both a client's needs and personality and then rota this dedicated team on an ongoing, regular basis. This way clients and carers quickly get to know and feel comfortable with each other. Clients have the reassurance of familiar faces returning and carers quickly become accustomed to a client's needs and routine.
We work closely with clients and their families to ensure that we match the most suitable carer to the individual needs of the client. Each person care needs are different and the price of care is tailored to your specific care needs this way, you only pay for thecare you need. Costs start from £859.00 per week (7 days).
We also offer a Family
Support Package where costs can be reduced when family members cover
care on some weeks.These packages are individually tailored.Please
