How does live-in care work?

When you choose Cheriton Homecare as your live-in carer provider, we will work with you to find the right carer for your needs. A live-in carer will move into your home and become a valued member of the household. They provide support around the clock, according to your pre-agreed care plan.

A live-in carer can help with everyday tasks such as shopping, cooking, light housework, gardening and pet care. Your health needs can also be met by helping you to take your medication at the right time and monitoring health stats such as your blood pressure or blood glucose levels.

When you choose live-in care, you get to stay in familiar surroundings, which can help improve care outcomes. You’ll also be close to loved ones and your existing support community. Our care is designed to adapt to your lifestyle so you always feel supported and heard.

What does a live-in carer do?

While your live-in carer might live in your home, they are not there to provide 24-7 support. Instead, they complete specific tasks according to your care plan. They will work 8 hours a day, spread over 24 hours. They will have specific break times throughout the day. Your carer will have their own room, so everyone in the home can enjoy quiet time and privacy.

Your care plan will be designed based on your level of need. Your carer can help with things like personal care, supporting your health, and providing companionship. They might coordinate with your GP to make sure you are able to attend appointments on time, or they might assist you in attending social commitments.

Care is determined by your level of need, from low to critical. We can help you to determine the right level of care for your needs. This will remain flexible throughout, ensuring that you and your family are always in control.

Live-in care FAQs

Does a live-in carer need their own room?

Yes, your live-in carer will need their own private room that is equipped with everything they need to be comfortable. We can provide more guidance on what is acceptable and what is required before moving forward.

Is live-in care better than a care home?

While the level of care will be similar, live-in care offers the distinct advantage of allowing your loved one to remain in their own home. This helps to maintain independence.

Do live-in carers help with the cleaning?

They can help with light housework if required, but for larger properties, we would recommend hiring a cleaner for extra support. A live-in carer’s skills would be best placed in providing personal care, medical support and companionship.
