Urgent Care

Are you looking for urgent care?

Life is unpredictable. Sometimes, urgent care is required immediately. Did you know IP Homecare operates a fast-response urgent care service to ensure that a trained, highly experienced live-in carer can be with you within 24 hours if the need arises?

Reasons why urgent care is needed:

  • Has your current live-in care provider let you down?
  • Has a relative recently been discharged from hospital?
  • Has someone had an unexpected accident or suffered a fall?
  • Is the main care giver ill or unexpectedly been called away?
  • Does the individual require palliative care?

How does Live-in care work?

Live-in care is very different to care homes. Live-in care is where a professional Carer provides exclusive 1-2-1 care all in the comfort of their own home.

At IP Homecare, all our Live-in carers are professionally trained, rigorously police checked and directly employed by us which means you do not have to worry about wages or paying  tax or national insurance. We choose our Live-in Carers not only for their knowledge and experience, but also for their compassion and commitment to valuing the dignity and self-respect of every single customer. Plus as they will be living in with your loved one, 24 hours per day/7 days per week we try and match the Carer and customer’s hobbies and interests.

How soon can urgent care be arranged?

Within 24 hours if required. A local Care Manager will carry out a FREE emergency assessment at a location of your choice to determine you’ve loved ones care needs and discuss the type of Live-in carer you require.

A care and support plan is then put together. We will also work closely with health care professionals and discuss any home adaptions or suggest what appropriate equipment is required.
