Live in Care - a great solution during COVID-19 crisis

With the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, where you are unable to visit your elderly parents and check that they are ok, our live-in care services offers a great solution to provide care in a safe way.

We are able to provide a dedicated live-in carer who would live with your loved one 24 hours a day. As there is only one live-in carer staying with your loved one, they would be able to self-isolate with them and attend to their needs. This reduces the risk of your loved one contracting COVID-19 due to no other footfall through their house. This gives you great peace of mind that your loved one can be looked after whilst you are currently unable to visit them.

This also means that if your mum or dad needs continuous care around the clock and you don’t want to place them in a care home, our live-in carer can attend to pretty much most of their needs (they may be limited if your loved one has nursing needs). Our 24-hour live-in care service, rated Overall Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), could be the most reliable and cost-effective solution for you.

Our live-in care service means your mum and dad can get the care and support they need right in the comfort and security of their own home. We can provide a carer matched to the needs of your mum or dad who would stay with them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We carefully handpick our live-in carers who are suited to your mum or dad’s needs and at the same time helping to promote and maintain their independence. This gives you total peace of mind that someone will be with your mum and dad all the time, especially if you don’t live close by.

Live in care was recently featured in the Daily Telegraph:

"Research suggesting that older people who remain in the familiar surroundings of own home, with appropriate adaptations and live-in care, suffer a third fewer falls and a quarter fewer hip fractures than their counterparts in care homes...

...depending on the level of care needed, the cost is comparable to moving into a higher-end care home, and significantly cheaper for couples.

Carers are carefully matched to ensure they have similar interests as their clients and are likely to become friends. They then move into a spare room in their clients’ home, sometimes on rotation with others."

We can provide you with no-obligation quote and answer any questions you may have. Below is a little bit more about the live-in care and supported living care service.

Care home, or your own home?

Getting older doesn't have to be a daunting proposition if you take advantage of live in care. When you need continuous care, you may not want the added stress of having to leave familiar surroundings. Bluebird Care gives you the option of high quality care without moving to a care home. You can even get 24 hour care in the comfort of your own home.

As you age, everybody understands the importance of maintaining your sense of independence and enjoying the things the way you have always done. With quality live in care, you can stay in your own home and spend your time doing the things you love instead of having to do the mundane everyday chores.

Our live in care service offers the reassurance of care and support in the comfort of your own home:

• You will gain an extra set of hands around the house

• You get assistance with your gardening or cooking

• We can aid you with important grooming tasks like bathing and dressing

• You can also get help with your daily to-do list, grocery shopping, transportation to appointments and any social engagements

Total Peace of Mind

It's wonderful to get 24 hour live in care around the clock, giving you and your loved ones total peace of mind. There's no need to worry about the potential of falling down or hurting yourself badly in emergency situations. You will have all the support to get you through each and every day. Having live in care is an excellent, cost effective alternative to a nursing home or other potentially expensive residential accommodation options.

Live-in Care for Couples

Live-in care for a couple is one of the most popular services that we offer. It’s a sad fact that many nursing homes cannot provide accommodation for couples: often leaving people who have lived together for many years to face life without their partner at just the time when they need them the most.

We strongly believe that older people should be assisted by whatever means possible to continue living together in familiar surroundings regardless of the conditions that affect them. That’s why we work hard with the couple and their family to put together a plan of care and support that takes into account all of their medical and social needs.

The couple benefits both emotionally and financially. Staying at home in well-loved surroundings, without the upheaval of a major move, provides a stress free, seamless move into assisted living. When there is no need to adjust to new surroundings and familiar people, places and things are close at hand, all of your energies can be applied to enjoying your quality of life rather than worrying about new situations.

Financially, it is generally less expensive to have a live in assistant at home for two people than to be faced with two sets of fees for separate care of each partner.

Because a lot of the time people take things for granted, I just wanted to say, I cannot praise Fatima highly enough for her outstanding professionalism, duty of care, genuineness, patience and dedication she has shown my father particularly under these extreme circumstances we now find ourselves! Her lovely and fun personality bonds her well to my father and I couldn’t wish for a nicer person to live in my once family home! She has diligently built up a successful daily routine which has had a positive effect on my father’s well-being and is always thinking of ideas as to how to improve his quality of life-nothing is too much trouble! As a truly valued member of your team, please convey to her my heart felt thanks! Vivien
