What is live-in care?
When older people begin to need help with daily activities most families prefer the option of continuing to live in in their own home rather than having to move into a care home.
Live-in care gives elderly people and elderly couples the ability to continue to live independently at home, safe in the knowledge that 24 hour care is on hand from a trained carer to help with anything from companionship, cooking, cleaning through to personal care, medication management or more complex support for specialist conditions.
How is live-in care different?
Live-in care has many advantages over receiving hourly care at home or moving into a residential care home. Not only is your loved one able to continue to enjoy the surroundings and lifestyle with which they are familiar, especially important when living with a condition such as dementia, but they also receive continuity of care enabling them to build a trusted relationship with their carer.
24 hour care at home is uniquely tailored to the needs of each family with a plan of care developed around your daily routines and the outcomes you wish to achieve. Care is provided by two professional, trained carers who will typically rotate on a 1 or 2 week shift pattern. They are matched to your needs and always introduced before care begins.
Unlike most live-in care providers we offer a local service which is managed, supported and quality assured from our local offices in Yorkshire and Cheshire. This includes our local care management team carrying out weekly support visits to ensure the client and carer are happy.
Live in care is also a cost effective option compared to residential care homes, particularly for couples who would otherwise be required to pay for two beds in a care home or nursing home.
Who is live-in care for?
You may feel you would benefit from companionship and some help with daily activities, or you have experienced a change in your health or mobility, or you are living with a complex health condition, or even be struggling to support a spouse or older relative in the way you would like. 24-hour live-in care is quite simply for anybody who wishes to remain in the comfort of their own home with the undivided attention of a single carer.
Live-in care can be arranged on a long-term basis or a short-term respite basis to provide a break to a carer, to aid recovery or to enable an older person to get used to the support.
Our professional live-in carers are fully employed by us – we support and take full responsibility for them and do not use agency staff. They undergo an extensive recruitment and selection process including interviews, reference checks and an Enhanced Criminal Record Check from the Disclosure and Barring Service (only 3% of people who apply are successful). Our staff are trained in all aspects of the care we deliver including specialist training for complex conditions such as:
- Hospital to home
- Medication management
- Palliative care
