Why Live-In Care?
What is Live-in Care?
Live-in Care is a 24-hour service tailored to each individual’s needs. It is suitable for anyone who is looking for full-time support in their own home, helping them maintain an independent lifestyle, or delivering a higher level of care than shorter care visits can provide. Live-in Care is the perfect alternative to a residential care home for people who don’t want to leave the familiar surroundings of their own home.
Live-in Care can be a short term or a long term solution, for anyone who needs a high level of daily support. We can provide full-time assistance to a range of customers with mental health as well as physical health challenges.
Who is Live-In Care for?
Live-in Care is suitable for:
People whose needs outgrow regular domiciliary/homecare visits.
As a persons’ requirements for homecare evolve, it may be that multiple domiciliary care visits per day no longer fulfil their care needs. A Live-in Care Assistant can fit more flexibly around their daily routine whilst becoming a familiar face with whom they can build a strong relationship.
People at risk of falls
For elderly people or those with mobility issues, as well as their families, the risk of falling is major concern. Unlike scheduled homecare visits, round-the-clock Live-In Care provides the reassurance that should a fall occur, help is quickly on hand.
People with Dementia
Live-In Care Assistants are particularly popular with people suffering from Dementia, enabling them to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their own home when it would otherwise be unsafe or impractical to do so.
Having a continuous, uninterrupted care presence can also help to create a calm atmosphere, which minimises some of the confusion and distress that can be a side effect of Dementia.
A 24hr Live-In Care Assistant can provide appropriate levels of care for one or both people in the couple. This can really help reduce the pressure on the person requiring least care, enabling them to stay together in their own home for as long as possible.
For many couples, this is also financially more beneficial than having to fund either a residential care home place for two people, or for one person, where the family home is still being occupied by the other.
Live-In Care isn’t just for elderly people, it can also be for any adult who struggles to maintain the independent lifestyle they want without additional support. For those living with physical disabilities or learning difficulties, a Live-In Care Assistant can help with social/companionship activities as well as personal care and medication prompting.
