Live-in care vs. residential care

Bluebird Care Croydon are a local, fully managed Live-in Care and home care service, never more than 20 minutes away if you or your carer need us. Our care assistants can also provide some of the nursing-led support residential care homes can provide, including stoma and catheterisation.

Bluebird Care Live-in Care

Residential Care/Nursing

Our care is one on one with your own Live-in Care Assistant

One carer to every 30 residents on average

Stay in the home you love, surrounded by all that matters to you

You cannot take all your belongings with you, including your pets

Care is personalised to suit you

Very little tailored care as there are so many people to satisfy

Your privacy is maintained

Communal living and lack of privacy

You can do different things on different days as you so choose

Timetables that suit the care team rather than you and this includes waiting to get washed and dressed

You can trial Live-in and see whether it suits you – without having to move - with no obligation

Once you have sold your home and moved into residential care, it’s very hard to change your mind

You can maintain your lifestyle, dignity and uniqueness

Your routines are decided for you
