What is live-in care?
Live-in care involves a dedicated, full-time, carer moving into the home to support with care needs as well as domestic tasks.
It’s the new standard for elderly care, allowing your loved one to remain as independent as possible while remaining a cost-effective alternative to more traditional care options.
A live-in carer can provide support with a number of things – from care needs and support with medication prompting to housekeeping tasks and companionship.
If you’re looking at care options for a loved one but are uncomfortable with the idea of sending them into a residential or nursing home, live-in care could be the ideal solution, with fees starting at £1,095 per week.
What does a live-in carer do?
A live-in carer performs a range of domestic and personal care duties to support your loved one with their wellbeing in their home with a range of tasks including:
- Preparing meals and washing the dishes
- Laundry and ironing
- Running errands
- Completing household chores
- Support with bathing, dressing and toileting
- Mobility support around the home
- Support getting out and about
- Companionship and emotional support
Why choose live-in care?
Live-in care allows people to stay in their own home, retaining a level of independence while still receiving the care and support they need. For many people, home means everything, it’s part of who they are. Live-in care allows them to keep that crucial element of their life.
