Live-in Care at home

Our Home Care service is very successful in prolonging independent living at home, however there is a limit to what can be safely achieved with daily visits – even with three or four visits a day. 

For those who need regular support throughout the day, and for whom life at home will always be preferred to residential care, our “locally-supervised” Live-in Care service may be the answer.

Our Live-in Care service offers the reassurance of a Personal Assistant who lives in your home in a second bedroom. Customers are able to prolong the benefits and comfort of life at home – reminiscence prompted by familiar and cherished objects and surroundings, preservation of local social networks – even when they require regular assistance from their carer.

Our “locally supervised” Live-in Care service means that our Personal Assistants are fully supported by managers from our local office, never more than a few miles away. They are also all our employees, which means that our customers will not be classified as “employers” for legal and tax purposes 
 a potential risk with “self-employed” Live-in Care arrangements.

We enrol all Live-in Personal Assistants on our regular Care Worker induction and on-going supervision programmes, ensure that all mandatory refresher training is done to a high standard and take care of all necessary insurance requirements.

We also play a pro-active role in securing the on-going success of the placement: we check regularly that the customer’s needs are being met and their wishes respected, that the Live-in Personal Assistant is happy with their posting and that any training or support specific to the customer’s circumstances is put in place. This ensures that any potential issues are identified early so that preventative action can be taken before problems arise.
 
 

How can we help?

Our Live-in Personal Assistants can help you with many aspects of your daily life - you can see examples of the typical daily tasks we help people with under the Care in Your Own Home section. However, their involvement may extend well beyond simply ensuring that you are safe, clean and well-nourished. We will make every effort to structure your care plan around your interests and abilities to ensure that the support your Personal Assistant provides enriches your life as much as possible. You can find examples of the more creative ways we've helped people under the Live Life Your Way section.  

For an increasing number of our customers, Live in Care is a natural progression from their Care visits at home service. You can read more about our daily visits service via the link above, or to find out more about arranging an assessment of your needs, please see our Setting up your Care service section.
 
Alternatively, you can call us on 01732-471-541 Mon - Fri 8.30am - 5.00pm.
