What is live-in care in Hampstead?

Live-in care is an alternative to care options such as residential care or sheltered living. Rather than uproot your life and move to a new home, you can stay in your property, surrounded by a lifetime of memories. There is no need to sell your home and downsize your life. Instead, a carer will move into a space room in your home and provide care, companionship and support.

If your family is struggling to provide care or if they are caring from a distance, this arrangement would be ideal. You will have access to expert care from a trained professional, and your family will enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that someone is close by should you have an accident or medical emergency.

What can live-in carers help with?

Every live-in care arrangement is unique to the client. We start by getting to know you and your daily routine. We’ll then assess where you need support and how a live-in carer could facilitate this. Live-in carers might help with household tasks, such as meal planning, food shopping, cooking and light housework. They might also help with tasks like helping to care for pets or light gardening.

A live-in carer can help with personal care, such as grooming and bathing. They might also help with mobility, such as helping you to get in and out of bed. They can also provide continence and catheter support.

Carers can also provide a limited level of support for specific health needs. This might include coordinating doctors’ appointments and relaying information to healthcare professionals. You might also need support to remember to take medication or follow a specific diet.

Live-in carers are also excellent companions and provide support to help prevent loneliness, particularly for those who are living alone. It can be a great source of comfort to know there is always someone there to enjoy a cup of tea with. They can help you to stay connected to friends, family and your local community. For example, they might help you to attend community events.

Live-in care FAQs

What is the difference between home care and live-in care?

Home care and live-in care are often used interchangeably, but home care doesn’t always mean that the carer lives in your property. They might only visit your home a few days a week, so you don’t enjoy the same level of care and support.

What accommodation does a live-in carer need?

Your live-in carer will need their own room that is furnished with a bed and storage facilities for them to keep their possessions. It is common to provide a locked room for your carer. It wouldn’t be possible to have the carer sleep in a common area such as a lounge.

Will the government pay for a live-in carer?

Support is available for care arrangements from your local council. If you’d like to know what funding is available to you, we recommend booking a consultation with our team and we can help guide you through the process of securing any funding that might be available to you.
