How does live in care work?

Live in care is when a carer lives in the home of the person they are caring for so that they can help provide round the clock care and assist them with various elements of their daily life. This could be for any number of reasons for someone with any range of abilities. A live in carer is there to allow someone to live in their own home safely and provide one on one care so they are well looked after, and all their needs are met.

Unlike visiting care, it allows the carer and their patient to build a relationship and consistency as well as routine.  

What is the role of a live in carer?

A live in carer in Fulham is there to provide help around daily life and the individual’s care needs, so their daily routine will be tailored to that individual. Their responsibilities can be broad, from delivering medical or palliative care to help with household tasks such as cleaning, hoovering, cooking, pet care and light gardening as well as personal care such as help with dressing, washing, and going to the toilet.

They may help with administering medication or day to day low level medical support, travel and accompaniment to appointments and physiotherapy or exercise.

Where it is safe and appropriate to do so, they will encourage independence and self-sufficiency. We are there to be a helping hand.

Why choose live in care services in Fulham?

Live in care in Fulham allows someone to remain in their own home, even if they require constant care, allowing them to remain in a familiar environment where they feel safe and secure or that they can retain some independence. It allows family or friends to visit as and when they like and assist in care where they can and want to but does not put the full responsibility on them so that relationships can focus on family and friendship.

Rather than in residential care, live in care provides one on one care, so all care needs are met and in a timely fashion with an understanding of what is needed and expected. It allows a carer to build a relationship with the person they are caring for and fully understand their needs – building a bond of trust and respect.
