Live-in care - affordable 24 hour care in your home

Live-in care allows your loved one to receive one-to-one care in the comfort and security of their own home from a carefully matched care worker. With prices starting from £795 per week, it is an affordable alternative to moving into a care home.

Our dedicated staff can provide different levels of care, ranging from companionship to complex care for health issues, such as dementia or palliative care.

What is live-in care?

Live-in care enables elderly or younger adults with care or extra support needs to continue to live in their own homes with 24 hour one-to-one care and support from our carefully matched staff.

Our fully trained staff provide a personalised service, offering companionship or support to people with a range of health conditions including: 

Our live-in care staff will need a bedroom and are entitled to a two hour break each day. Whilst they are on call for 24 hours a day, minimal interruptions during the night are expected. 

If this does not suit your needs, 24 hour care or a waking night option is available.

What are the advantages of live-in care?

  • Allows you to stay in your own home, alongside any family or pets
  • Enables you to maintain independence and continue to be part of your local community
  • One-to-one, personalised support, 24 hours a day, to meet all your individual needs
  • Companionship to prevent isolation & loneliness
  • Ensures correct medication, nutrition and hydration 
  • Helps maintain safety and security, including lowering the risk of falls, which can often lead to hospitalisation in the elderly


Avoid selling your family home

Having to sell the family home to pay for care is understandably deeply unpopular. However, if you continue to live in your home it can not be taken into account as an asset when calculating the cost of care.

Therefore, your home remains yours to bequeath or do with as you wish. This is particularly relevant for people with combined assets amounting to more than £23,250 (the point at which clients become responsible for the full cost of their care).

24 hour care costs

The cost of care depends on the level of care required and funding may be available.

We maintain a strong pool of trained and qualified live-in care staff throughout England who are able to travel at short notice. They are supported by a network of regionally based staff and offices across the country.

Peter’s remarkable live-in care story

Receiving home care doesn’t need to mean
hordes of people traipsing through your home, with
long, lonely hours between visits.

Fifty-five year-old Hove resident Peter discovered an alternative - 24 hour live-in care - and it’s no exaggeration to say that it changed his life.
