How does live in care in Farnham work?

Live in care is when a carer lives at home with the person they are caring for, staying within the person’s home and providing round the clock care. The live in carer will need their own room to sleep and live in and have access to washing and cooking facilities but will be on hand to provide care and companionship. 

Live in care can be an ideal option for many, especially those who are struggling to care for a loved one and need additional help at home or those worried about a loved one living alone but don’t want to opt for residential care. 

What is the role of a live in carer?

A live in carer in Farnham can provide a range of services such as cooking, cleaning, picking up prescriptions, shopping, help with physio, prompting medication, accompanying to appointments and personal care such as washing, dressing and toileting. 

Live in care is there to allow someone to remain within their home and receive the care they need to live comfortably and safely. It allows them to stay in familiar surroundings and where they have built memories or a place they can live independently but safely and see family and friends whenever they wish.

Why choose live in care services in Farnham?

If you or your loved one does not wish to opt for residential care and would prefer to remain at home, live in care in Farnham is a surprisingly affordable choice and offers many additional benefits above and beyond residential care. 

With live in care, there is a dedicated carer that’s whole focus is one or two individuals in one home, rather than a residential care home where they may be one carer to many patients or visiting care when a carer may only visit for half an hour a day and be making their way around many other people on the same day – leaving them little time to provide adequate care.
