Live-in dementia care
According to the Alzheimer’s Society there are around 850,000 people in the UK with dementia. One in 14 people over 65 will develop dementia, and the condition affects 1 in 6 people over 80.
So it’s no surprise that our live-in care staff are extremely experienced in supporting people with all types of dementia – giving families valuable peace of mind.
Our live-in care workers have extensive experience of caring for people with other complex conditions, such as MS and cerebral palsy, or providing reassuring and sensitive palliative and end-of-life care.
When a break is all you need
If your family member is living at home with you, live-in respite care is a great way to guarantee their continued care while you take a well-deserved break.
Similarly, if you’re worried about a family member trying to recover at home after illness, a hospital stay or fall, a live-in care worker could come and live with them for a short while, giving them the intensive support and encouragement they need to regain their independence and skills.
Live-in care is particularly good for people who’ve been in hospital – their consultant will only discharge them if they agree they’re able to manage on their own, or that the right level of care is in place to support them at home.
Live-in care costs – an affordable alternative to a care home
Live-in care is an affordable alternative to moving into a care home. And because your relative is still living there, the value of their home isn’t taken into account as an asset – this isn’t the case if they move into a care home.
Our simple care online cost calculator can give you a good idea of how much live-in care from one of Agincare’s professional care workers could cost a week.
Home care – professional care in your home when you need it
If your family member doesn’t have a spare room for a live-in care worker, or doesn’t need someone on hand all the time, there is another alternative.
Home care (also known as domiciliary care) means a care worker or workers regularly come in to support your relative with whatever they need help with. This could be washing, preparing meals, shopping, or feeding a pet.
We have a network of home care branches, providing local care from local people. Our care staff quickly become familiar and trusted faces for clients and their families.
