The Live in care Process
So you’ve finally decided to choose Live in care. But what is the process and how quickly can it be implemented? There really is no worry – if live in care is required urgently – a living in carer can be there within 24 hours.
Step 1 – Call to arrange FREE Live in care assessment
All care assessments are free of charge. When you call the office we will discuss appropriate times and dates for a Care Manager to meet you and the person requiring live in care either at home, hospital or even a care home.
Step 2 – The Live in care Assessment
At this meeting we will assess the person needing care discussing their individual needs and requirements. We’ll talk you through the service, answering any questions you may have and a discuss the type of Carer you are looking for – we not only match their care needs, but we also try to match their hobbies and interests too.
At this meeting we can they provide you a definitive weekly cost.
Step 3 – Care and Support Plan
We will then put together a care and support plan. This could even include recommendations for home adaptations or appropriate equipment.
Step 4 – Live in Carer Selection
Once contracts have been signed, our Care Partnership Team will source a selection of Live in Carers which we feel most accurately suit your requirements. We will then send you a profile of each Carer for you to choose.
