How Does Live In Care Work?


Live-in care is a full-time care solution that allows your loved ones to stay in their own home and surroundings whilst being cared for by professional carers, twenty four hours a day.  It’s a great alternative to a care home or nursing home, as your loved one gets to remain in familiar surroundings.

Utilising live-in care allows your loved ones to feel independent, spend more time with family and remain part of their local community: all with a specialist carer on hand to support them when they’re feeling low or require health care.

Live-In Care Gives Peace Of Mind

It can be a worrying time when your loved one’s health is declining, and the last thing you want to do is take away their independence; therefore making live-in care the ideal option to give you the peace of mind that they’re being cared for, whilst they remain in complete comfort.

Elderly relatives may feel lonely following the loss of a loved one, or if they lose the ability to be as mobile as they once were. A live-in carer allows them to build a relationship with someone that they know and trust; providing them with companionship as well as any physical help and medical care they may need.

What’s The Difference Between Live-In Care & Home Care?

A live-in carer resides in the home with your loved one, enabling care for them twenty four hours per day; whilst a home carer visits at predetermined times during the day.

Both have unique benefits: a live-in carer will help with day to day domestics and provides constantly social support (as well as medical) for your loved one; whereas a home carer allows your loved one to have less of a schedule and still partake in social events outside of the home, as the visits are scheduled ahead of time.

What Illnesses Can Live-In Carers Support With?

Highly trained live-in carers can help to support your loved ones and offer support for a number of illnesses including:

  • Dementia
  • Complex Care
  • Brain Injury
  • Spinal Injury
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Huntington’s Disease
  • Muscular Dystrophy

Everything live-in carers do is focused on supporting people of all ages to fulfil their potential and live independently.  They work closely with your relatives to truly understand the challenges they face daily and how they can help to overcome them.  At every level, it’s about maintaining the dignity, privacy and individuality of your relatives.
