Live In Care
Four Oaks Healthcare provides specialist, personalised live in care for all ages; allowing people to retain independence in their own home, with access to support when needed.
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.
Living in the comfort of your own environment with a familiar routine can be extremely effective in maintaining both physical and mental wellbeing. In addition, this form of support allows you to continue living with independence and dignity for as long as possible, even after help from family and friends isn’t enough to keep you safe and content.
Four Oaks Healthcare builds flexible 24 hour live in care solutions, bespoke to the needs of our clients. These plans integrate broader activities, routines and hobbies based on your interests.
How Does Live In Care Work?
As health deteriorates, medical or personal care may be required to ensure your quality of life doesn’t also decline. A 24 hour live in care provider will reside in a client’s home to ensure that all medical, personal and social needs are met at all times, night or day.
While live in care is often associated with elderly care, this service is available to individuals of any age who could benefit from medical care or assistance. Similarly, this service differs from homecare, where care is provided between predetermined times on selected days.
When the level of support from friends and family increases, a care recipient can often feel isolated, fragile and a burden on their loved ones; often resulting in a relationship breakdown as the lines between companion and carer are blurred. Through 24 hour live in care, companionship, independence and mental strength can be rebuilt, often strengthening those essential personal connections.
Retaining your home environment improves mental health, morale and physical strength which are paramount to a healthy lifestyle.
What Do Live In Carers Do?
A live in carer provides the necessary support and companionship needed to extend and support the independence of a care recipient. Some of the tasks that a live in carer will complete as part of their round-the-clock support are:
Support or control administering medication
Some household chores
Toilet, hygiene and bathroom assistance
Help moving through the home
Laundry, ironing and dressing
Assistance with visits to family or friends
Facilitation of hobbies outside of the home
Feeding and Fussing Pets
Emotional support and companionship
Welcoming a live in carer into your home can be daunting initially. However, all of our carers are highly qualified, compassionate, kind-willed, knowledgeable people with years of experience. They provide the necessary support and companionship needed to extend the quality of life of our care recipients. Based in Birmingham, we match clients with live in carers all across the UK.
How much does Live In Care Cost?
Care costs vary depending on what level of support is needed. The main influences include:
– Whether there are specific medical needs that need to be catered to
– If the care recipient lives alone or with a partner, who also requires support
– If elderly care recipients have been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimers
Choosing a private care provider is a difficult task, which often is heavily weighed by costs. At Four Oaks Healthcare, we endeavour to offer the most affordable prices without compromising the quality of care.
We have curated hundreds of bespoke packages for clients with a variety of care requirements across the UK to great success. Each client is matched to a carer based on individual needs and interests. Regular reviews and quality audits are conducted to ensure that only the highest quality of support is offered.

Perhaps the biggest single plus about Four Oaks over previous care providers is the ability to provide continuity of carer. I am convinced my mother has benefited from the stability of having the same compassionate, competent and dedicated carer for the past eight months
