Carers provide personalised support depending on your needs. We aim to maintain your independence for as long as possible, so we take feedback on board to ensure we’re always providing the right level of support. The most common tasks for a live-in carer include helping around the house with cooking, light housework, gardening and pet care.
In addition to meeting these basic needs, a live-in carer can also help with personal care and medical care. This could include coordinating with your GP or other healthcare providers to monitor things like blood pressure or blood glucose levels. Specialist care with continence and catheter care is also provided.
To help individuals to maintain an active social live, the live-in carer will also provide companionship, along with organising social activities and outings. This includes going to the shops, attending appointments, or just spending time chatting. A live-in carer can also help individuals to stay connected with their family and loved ones.
