Live-In Care

Take a look at our Live-In Care service which can be a great alternative to residential care.

What is Live-In Care?

Live-in care is a type of home care service and is sometimes called ‘24-hour care at home’. The difference between Live-in care and home care is that your care assistant lives in your home with you rather than only visiting at specific times when care is needed. Although the carer lives with you in your home this does not mean that they are working for 24 hours every day, but instead they are usually actively working for around 10 hours per day with regular breaks within that working time both daily and weekly. If care is needed during these break times or during the night other arrangements can be made.

Every Live-in care package is bespoken to the needs and wishes of the person receiving the care based on an initial assessment in your home and your care plan is consistently updated with regular reviews with the person receiving the care.

What kind of support do you get with Live-In Care?

Your live-in carer can support you with:

  • Help you start and end your day – getting in/out of bed, washed, dressed etc
