Our Live-in care will help you live the life you want, on your own terms. By listening and getting to know you, we’ll put a unique package of support in place with a carefully selected staff. Together, we’ll help you stay in the home you know and love.
Our Live-in care program is a popular alternative to someone moving into a care home. It will enable you to stay in your own home and meet your changing needs. For some people, it offers a way of continuing to live as independently as possible at home in their local community.
This program might suit you or your relative for several reasons including, but not limited if they need support with:
- Personal care, such as washing and dressing
- Taking medication when other aids aren’t effective
- Support to manage the risk of falls and other risks at home
- Caring for a pet
- Trips out, such as to the doctor or hairdresser
- Continuing to enjoy some lifelong passions.
This route is also attractive to people who may become confused by a new environment and find it difficult to adapt to change. This particularly applies to people living with dementia, where continuity, routine and familiar surroundings are very reassuring, important and improve quality of life. Live-in care also provides the supervision that someone living with dementia might need to keep them safe.
Moving to a new home is a stress for anyone, even at the best of times. Couple that with moving into residential care – with set routines, set meals and set visiting times – and it can become a real strain and disruption to a person’s life.
Live-in care means you can keep the same daily routines, and friends and family can continue to visit as they normally do. With a spare room in your home, your live-in home staff will be there to support you each day, as much or as little as you like and according to what matters to you most.
