The Benefits Of Birmingham Live In Care

The Benefits Of Birmingham Live In Care

Live in care can be a great alternative to moving to a residential care facility or care home. This allows you to stay at home in a familiar environment with all your family and friends all while being taken care of by your live in carer. Your live in carer will be able to assist you 24 hours a day with a level of care that suits and is tailored to your specific needs.

What is Live In Care?

Live in care involves creating a plan where a care provider lives with you, in your home 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This enables care recipients to continue living in a familiar environment with a consistent routine. Unlike other care solutions, live in care empowers you to maintain your independence and social connections. 

Who Would need Live-In Care?

While they are plenty of care homes in Birmingham, a recent study showed that a vast majority of the respondents indicated that they would prefer to be looked after in their own home as opposed to moving to a care home. This is particularly important when it comes to supporting for specific difficulties. Conditions such as but not limited to;

  • Dementia Care
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Huntington’s Disease
  • Paralysis Care
  • Brain Injury
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Cancer Care

As well as the conditions listed, live in care can also be an option for the elderly who feel they may want to continue to live in their own home and maintain quality of life, patients that may be recovering from recent hospitalisation and surgery. 

The Benefits Of Live In Care

Falls are amongst the some the leading issues that we experience as we age or if we are unwell or on medication. As we age, we become more likely to lose our balance easily and fall which can result in broken bones. Studies have shown that falls are less likely to happen when an elderly person has the assistance of a live in carer.

What having a live in carer means is that there is a better chance of preventing falls from happening, as there is another person around, hazards and obstacles can be identified and moved out of harms and any changes or modifications that need to be made can be communicated to the client.

Peace of Mind. Having a live in carer will give you peace of mind knowing that someone is always available should you need physical support or if you have a problem with your medication.

Having a live in carer also provides companionship. When you live alone, it is difficult to discuss concerns that you may have about various issues; you could discuss your concerns with your carer who is impartial.

Less pressure on relationships. If you have been supported by a spouse member of your family at some point, they will need a break no matter how much they want to support you. They may also be looking after their own family.

If you are being cared for by a friend or relative, you may feel obligated to go along with their suggestions as opposed to expressing your own views and opinions. Over time this can cause resentments which will affect your relationship with them.

It can be very challenging to accept personal care from a friend or family member. It is easier to accept help from a professional carer who will encourage you to make your own choices rather than feeling pressurised to do what they want.
