Live-in respite care

Staying with you for anything from seven days to several weeks, our live-in care respite worker will help minimise disruption to your routine and lifestyle at home, while your regular carer takes a well-deserved break.

Whether it’s helping you with personal care, preparing and eating meals or looking after the house and walking pets, or making sure you’re taking your medication at the right time, we have a live-in care worker to suit you, your situation and your way of life.

You get continuity of care from a friendly and experienced care worker matched to your needs. And your friends and family get peace of mind, knowing you are well cared-for while they take a break from their caring responsibilities.

We provide live-in respite care for people over the age of 18 years. And as with all our live-in care services, we can tailor our respite support to you regardless of any health condition or diagnosis, including:

Why choose respite live-in care from Agincare?

What makes our live-in care service special is that we fully manage it. While other live-in care services – such as introductory services – are available, they offer less protection and fewer guarantees for the same price.

We go the extra mile. We employ and pay the care staff, which means we have a duty of care. For example, if your care worker is ill, it’s our job to find someone to replace them.

We are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission. This gives you a higher level of protection and peace of mind, knowing there’s a professional team managing your care. We also guarantee the training, supervision and support of our care staff.

And we’re always at the end of a phone should you need support. So as well as your live-in care worker you’ll have access to our experienced field-based assessors and our office team.
