Live-in care vs care homes

There are many reasons why live-in care is chosen over care homes. Here are a few reasons why.

Why is Live-in Care an excellent alternative to care homes?

  • First of all, you would not have to leave your beloved home. Being around your well-known environment is a home in which you have built many memories. Moving away from this could not only be heartbreak but also could be very disorientating for many individuals. 
  • Often, if you or your loved one has to choose a care home,  they get separated from their loved one. Choosing Live-in Care means they can continue living together in their home with beautiful memories.
  • Choosing live-in care means receiving the highest quality of care one-to-one. In contrast, in care homes, on average, one care assistant has to split their attention between 12 customers.
  • At Bluebird Care Lincoln, we have our team of registered nurses who can deal with complex care needs meaning that if your needs change, we will still be able to accommodate that. 
  • Our services are bespoke to our customer's needs. Each care assistant is matched to your preferences to ensure they are best suited for your needs and personality. 
  • With Bluebird Care Lincoln, you will also have access to a digital app to get instant access to care notes. Many families find this reassuring, knowing what is happening in the lives of their loved ones. 
  • You are not separated from your life companion; whether a cat, dog or any other domestic pet, they will still be a part of your life.
  • You can choose your daily foods and drinks without sticking to a care home's menu. You can also help with the cooking and make it an activity if you like.
  • At Bluebird Care, we will promote your independence rather than restricting it; you carry on with your life with the assistance of our care assistants. Helping you as much or as little as you would like
  • You get to choose the dialy activities you want instead of being stuck with a care home schedule.


Choosing Live-in Care with Bluebird Care means your life carries on as it was without changing your surroundings, routine, losing your independence or becoming institutionalized. You keep your freedom in your chosen surroundings and get a better quality of life.
