Your live-in carer will be specially trained to deliver support according to your needs. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, as this is not conducive to positive health outcomes. Your carer can provide the same level of support you would expect to receive in a residential care home.
Primarily, your carer will provide personal care to ensure you can live independently and with dignity. This could include help washing, dressing and grooming. Some clients will require assistance with additional requirements, such as catheter care and incontinence support.
Your carer can be an important part of your healthcare provision, ensuring that you take medications at the right time and also monitoring health vitals such as blood pressure or blood glucose levels. If you need support visiting the hospital or GP, they will also ensure you can attend these appointments.
One often overlooked role of the live-in care provider is that of a compassionate companion. Illness, disability and ageing can all be incredibly isolating, so it can be helpful to have someone on hand for a chat over a cup of tea. They can also help you to stay connected to your family, friends and community.
