What is live-in care?

Live-in care is when a caregiver resides in the home of the person they are caring for, enabling them to offer individualised attention to the person they are caring for at all hours of the day. It provides a safe and supportive environment that allows someone to remain living independently and in their own home rather than residential care.

Remaining in their own home allows them to continue to do the things they enjoy such as gardening, seeing friends and family, social activities, and hobbies.

What does a live-in carer do?

A live-in carer in Hammersmith is there to provide support and care to meet the needs and demands of the person they are caring for, it can consist of a variety of tasks throughout each day such as light housework such as hoovering, washing up and laundry, preparing and serving food, picking up prescriptions and shopping, reminding someone to take their medication, taking them to appointments or day centres and supporting with personal care such as bathing, going to the toilet and getting dressed.

A good carer will encourage independence where it is safe and realistic, to allow someone to maintain independence where they can and practise important movement, motor function and self-sufficiency.
