Live-in Care Benefits

It’s better at home
Your home is a warm place, filled with rich memories, photos and belongings collected over a lifetime. It is familiar and private. Your routines and food are the way you like them. It is a place full of memories and is particular beneficial for people who are suffering from Alzheimer’s or Dementia – as their home is their ‘memory box’.

Families can visit at any time
Friends and neighbours can come and go and trips out are easy. Plus if they have a beloved pet, they can keep living with them as we’ll ensure your chosen Live-in Carer is an animal lover and can take care of their pet as well.

Support for a caregiver
If Mum or Dad is now the main caregiver, having a Live-in carer will relieve the pressure. They are their to provide 24/7 support and even companionship to the main caregiver. Often, our Live-in Carer become an extension of the family.

Dedicated 1-2-1 care
The main advantage of engaging a live-in carer is the dedicated one-to-one care your loved one will receive. You do not have to share a Carer with another 20 residents if they were in a residential care home.

Cost effective
Live-in care is extremely cost effective. For the price of one bed within a care home, you can receive a live-in care service which is tailored to your healthcare needs. If both couples are requiring care, then live-in care is significantly cheaper than two rooms in a care home, plus they do not need to be separated.

Dignity and choice
Another benefit of live-in care is your right to make choices and stay in control over life longer. Your routines can remain the same and you can keep up with clubs, hobbies and interests.

An end to loneliness
Did you know we also provide a companionship service? With more than 50% of people aged 75 and over living alone a number of families use this service for complete peace of mind. We’ll ensure the Carer’s interests and hobbies are similar to their loved one and having someone their around the clock to support them mentally as well as physically, will make them feel less alone.

Specialist care service
We have many Live-in Carers who are trained and experienced in conditions including (but not limited to): Stroke, Dementia, Parkinson’s, MS or even Palliative Care.
