How it works

Frequently asked questions

Our respite live-in care is designed as an alternative to a care home and bridges the gap between home care and residential support.

With respite live-in care, a care worker lives with you in your own home to provide one-to-one, consistent support, 24/7. This coud be to give your regular care worker or family member a well-deserved break, or to give you a little extra support doing the things you love. Many of those drawing on our service enjoy trips out and even holidays supported by one of our professional live-in care workers.

Respite live-in care is bespoke to you and can be tailored to suit your specific situation. Whether you require personal care, support with household tasks, or help getting out and about, your live-in care worker will be on hand to support you in living as independently as possible.

Our respite live-in care service is fully managed, meaning we take care of everything. This includes coordination of your care, matching an experienced live-in care worker to you, and paying your care worker’s wages. All this is included in a single weekly fee.

Unlike an introductory agency which will simply put you in touch with a self-employed care worker, we employ, train and pay our teams. This means we have a duty of care to you and we will support you throughout the process. When you enquire, we will help you book your free, no obligation care assessment before creating a care plan tailored to your specific needs. We will also match a care worker to you based on your needs and preferences and assign a care coordinator who will oversee your care.

Should your care worker fall ill or go on holiday, we will find someone to replace them and also provide a 24-hour emergency call line for when you or your care worker need additional support. Our fully managed respite live-in care is also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission, giving you a higher level of protection and assurance than an introductory agency.

The biggest step in arranging care is often getting started. We know how difficult it can be to pick up the phone without truly understanding what you need or what may be available. That’s why we have a team of expert care advisors who take time to get to know you, your needs, hobbies and interests.

From the moment you enquire, they will support you throughout the whole process, helping you find the best care option from our wide range of home care, care homes, live-in care and supported living services. Once you have chosen a service, they will book your free, no obligation care assessment. This will allow us to give you an exact quote and match a care worker to you.

The live-in care worker will come and live with you in your own home. You must have a spare bedroom available for them. They will be on hand to provide tailored support that enables you to maintain your normal routine.

Friends and family can continue to visit whenever you want and your live-in carer will assist you to pursue your interests and desires, such as going on trips out and helping you attend events.

Our respite live-in care is an affordable alternative to respite in a care home that enables you to remain in your own home even when your regular care worker is away.

The cost of our fully managed, respite live-in care starts from £1050 per week depending on the level of care and number of hours required. This is signifcantly less than the respite cost of a care home, where prices start at £1900 for a minimum two week stay. An exact quote on the cost of live-in care is dependent on a free, no obligation care assessment. Contact our team of care experts today to get started.

The type of care your live-in carer supports you with depends entirely on you. Your care worker will be on hand 24 hours a day, but the actual care and support they provide is tailored to your care needs. Everyone is different, so each of our care packages is different too.

Our live-in care also comes with a premium service included within the standard price. This includes additional support such as:

Taking service users on days out
Collecting medication
Pet care
Liaising with health care professionals

Yes, absolutely. Our livse-in care team have a range of experience and specialisms, including dementia, palliative care and end-of-life care.

We will match you to a live-in carer who is right for you and your care needs and we have a clinical lead who ensures your live-in care worker receives the best possible bespoke training and is able to support you, even where complex conditions are involved.
