How does live in care work?
Live in care is when a carer lives with the person they are caring for, in their home, allowing them to provide round the clock care and dedicated support. It’s an ideal option for those who are facing increasing care needs but don’t want to be moved out of their home. A live in carer allows them to remain within their home, in a familiar environment and able to maintain some independence.
Many of us and our loved ones would prefer to stay within our homes, where we feel most comfortable and safe, enjoying the freedom to see family and friends whenever we wish and to carry on any social activities and hobbies.
What is the role of a live in carer?
The role of a live in carer in Chelsea is varied and rewarding, building a meaningful professional relationship with the person they care for whilst truly understanding their needs and personalities. They can take on a range of tasks in their role to help make the life of the person they are caring for easier. Some tasks may include light housework such as hoovering, laundry and preparing and serving food, helping with pet care, picking up prescriptions and food shopping, prompting medication and assistance with personal care such as going to the toilet, dressing, and bathing.
The one-on-one relationship of a live in carer allows them to understand the abilities of the person they are caring for and encouraging them to maintain independence when it is safe to do so, so they still feel they have control of their life. Reading these signs is important for mental health and we fully support the people we care for to live the most fulfilling life.
