Live In Care Oxford

At Four Oaks Healthcare we provide specialist, personalised live in care in Oxford for those in need and the elderly; allowing them to retain their independence in their own home, whilst having help when needed.

What Is Live In Care?

Live in care is when a dedicated and qualified carer moves into the home of the care receiver, providing 24-hour care in the comfort of their own home. Beneficial to both your loved one and your family, 24-hour live in care in Oxford provides peace of mind that your loved one is properly cared for, whilst retaining their home and their independence. On hand throughout every day and night, a Four Oaks Healthcare carer in Oxford ensures that your loved one is comfortable and safe at all times.

 

What Does A Live In Carer In Oxford Do?

Our Oxford live in care services include anything you or your loved one requires to keep safe, healthy and happy at all times. Care can be as minor or as intensive as required, encompassing anything from simple companionship and assistance with daily tasks to more complex care such as dementia care or spinal care.

A live in carer may provide:

Personal care – our carers will help with everyday tasks such as washing and getting dressed.

Meal preparation – live-in carers will ensure clients enjoy healthy and varied meals that meet their dietary requirements.

Housekeeping – from cleaning the home to doing laundry, carers are there to stay on top of the housework.

Medication – our carers ensure their client takes the correct medication on time and to schedule. 

Companionship – carers are carefully matched with clients to ensure they can provide much-needed companionship alongside essential care.

Transportation – whether it’s an essential appointment or a leisurely excursion, live-in carers are able to provide transport.

Exercise – a live-in carer can help clients stay mobile, through gentle movement or exercise indoors or outdoors as needed. 

From time-to-time, live in homecare can include excursions outside of the home. In Oxford, for example, a carer might take a client for a stroll along the Port Meadow or University Parks riversides. When the weather’s not so forgiving, a trip out might involve an afternoon exploring the Ashmolean Museum, or perusing the latest exhibition at Weston Library.

Even a short walk down the high street to browse some shops or enjoy coffee and cake in a cafe can provide essential socialisation with the local community.

Our person-centred approach to live in care in Oxford means that our carers focus on ensuring you or your loved one feels as independent and as fulfilled as possible, whether this be assisting with food shopping, participating in gentle exercise, or enjoying a walk or other outing.  Highly trained in all services encompassed in live in care, our Oxford carers work tirelessly to ensure the health and happiness of each care receiver we work with.

How Much Does 24-Hour Live In Care in Oxford Cost?

Testimonials

What Our Clients Think

From the moment I contacted this organisation, the staff have always been polite and incredibly helpful. They have had to step in at short notice when other providers have let us down. They have provided everything we have asked for in a thoroughly efficient and professional manner. All staff have been incredibly caring and thoughtful when approaching my mother’s needs. As a family, we are incredibly grateful for the service provided and I personally have already recommended the organisation to a potential client and a potential employee. We will have no hesitation in using these services again.

My parents have a live-in carer from Four Oaks Healthcare. This service has enabled my parents to stay together at home. Since the live-in carer started caring for my parents, it has enabled the family to relax and feel confident that our parents are safe and being well looked after. As a family, we can now visit our parents and spend quality time with them instead of time spent caring and worrying about their health and wellbeing.
The regular live-in carer is extremely competent in relieving the family of the burden and worry, she is kind and respects the wishes of our parents. When the regular carer has a holiday the replacement carer was also very good, keeping the continuity of care. We are extremely happy with the service provided by Four Oaks Healthcare.
Christine S
It was very apparent from the start when the first carer walked through the door for this first time just how caring and committed she was. This continued as we met mom’s other 5 carers. Every single one of them were fantastic with mom, taking time to speak to her, find out what she needed and always making sure that they cared for her with dignity. Also on numerous occasions, asking if we needed anything, which has got to be well over and above what is expected and so very much appreciated.To be brutally honest we were all dreading having strangers coming into the house but this was a very short-lived worry as everyone was so caring, so committed, so professional and so polite, putting us all completely at ease.

In our experience Four Oaks were outstanding in every way.

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
