With our live-in care teams, you’re in good hands

If you’re weighing up care options for a family member, you’re in good hands with our live-in care regional teams.

Live-in care offers people support in their own home. With a care worker living in the home and on hand all the time, people can keep their independence, social routines, pets and home comforts.

A wide variety of live-in care workers

From the office we manage a fantastic team of care workers of varying ages, nationalities and backgrounds. There really is a care worker to suit every client.

Our care workers have our clients’ best interests at heart. They look out for them every day, promoting their independence and supporting them to achieve their goals.

It offers real consistency of care and it’s not just clients who appreciate the consistency that live-in care brings.

 

Live-in care: reassurance when you need it the most

Our clients are all different, too. The youngest is 18 and the oldest is 99.

Companionship

Some people decide on elder live-in care because they want companionship. It gives families reassurance that someone’s there all the time to help and support, especially if relatives don’t live nearby. It’s particularly reassuring for families whose relatives are at risk of falling at home.

Dementia care

Dementia care at home is often something that families are looking for. Nearly half of our clients are living with some form of dementia.

Live-in care can really help reduce the worry and anxiety for relatives of people living with dementia. Knowing there’s always someone on hand with practical experience and knowledge of supporting someone living with dementia can make a world of difference.

Complex care

Other clients need 24-hour care at home, so two care workers are there every day. Everyone is different, so we arrange a care worker or workers to match a client’s particular situation.

From the office we keep in particularly close contact with client and care worker for the first few weeks. It’s a period of adjustment for everyone. Some people find it hard to have someone new come to live in their home. Others take to it like a duck to water.

If it’s clear that we need to bring in a different care worker, we do that. We sort out any teething problems and make sure the care package is right, so that client and care worker can forge a strong relationship.

Live-in care can be life-changing, offering people hope, dignity, support and friendship. I’m incredibly proud of the team and the service we provide to hundreds of people.
