Live-in care is when a carer lives with your loved one to provide all the assistance they need to stay in their own home. Having a live-in carer means that our clients can continue to enjoy life on their own terms.
Live-in care is an increasingly popular alternative to residential care, as it allows your loved one to keep control of their life. If living alone or with a partner is becoming increasingly difficult, we can provide that little bit of extra support they need to maintain as much of their independence as possible.
The live-in caregiver manages everything that needs to be done in the home. They take care of the housekeeping, shopping, and cooking, and are extremely respectful when providing the personal care needed to maintain a dignified and fulfilling life. If your loved one wants to get out in the fresh air, or visit friends, we will arrange that too!
Respecting privacy & maintaining your independence
Respecting your privacy and maintaining your independence Our friendly live-in carers are respectful of your home and your privacy. Although we’re here to help with the cooking, cleaning, and general household duties, we encourage you to continue doing what you can for as long as possible.
With live-in care for couples, there can be days when one feels the strain of supporting the other, and you just need a bit of respite care before you return to the role of main carer. That’s what we’re here for – we can sensitively take over your role for as long as you need, and then take a back seat once you’ve recharged your batteries.
Live in Care for Couples
We love providing live-in care for couples, as we understand how important it is to stay together. If one of you has a progressive condition such as dementia, you may have a concern that the day will come when you will have to be separated after so many years. We ask you to guide us so that we don’t intrude on your relationship. We want you to continue to enjoy each other’s company without us getting in the way.
You may be struggling to support and care for each other, and to maintain your independence. Just a little support from us can be all you need to keep enjoying each other’s company.
There are many benefits of live-in care for couples
There are many advantages to live-in care for couples, with the cost savings being a welcome bonus to an already favourable solution. Couples’ care in a residential home can cost up to twice as much as live-in care.
Cost isn’t the only consideration of course; having a live-in carer allows you to stay in your familiar surroundings and continue to support each other as you grow old together
