WHAT IS LIVE-IN CARE?
Live-in care offers the stability and normality of everyday life. It means that you can remain in the comfort of your own home whilst attaining the level of support and care that would be provided in a residential care home setting - especially when health issues mean that
Our own homes are full of memories and familiarity, so for many, the option to remain in their own home when illness strikes or they suffer an injury is priceless to living as normal a life as possible.
What makes live-in care different?
Moving home is stressful, especially when it’s into brand new surroundings. With moving into residential care you’ll have the added element of having to fit into the care home routine for dinner, leisure time and bedtime.
What does a live-in carer do?
A live-in carer will move into your home (you’ll need to have a spare bedroom) to take care of the tasks that you are unable to do, or need assistance with. This includes cooking meals, running errands, completing household chores and supporting you with personal care. Personal care includes washing and dressing, shaving, and showering:
Helping with paying bills
Cleaning & tidying
Dressing, shaving & showering
