What is live-in care in Harrow?

Harrow residents have a few options available to them when they can no longer live in their own homes. They can either sell their property and move into a care home, or they can choose to remain in familiar surroundings by choosing a live-in care arrangement.

A live-in carer will occupy a spare bedroom in your home and become a treasured member of the household. They provide additional support to help you to live with dignity and independence for as long as possible. They also provide peace of mind knowing that someone is there in an emergency.

Live-in carers can help with a wide range of tasks such as personal care, household tasks, keeping on top of medication and offering companionship. They can also help you stay connected to your friends, family and community, regardless of your physical or mental limitations.

How does live-in care work?

The live-in care arrangement starts with an assessment to determine the level of support you need. We can also have input from family members to learn how best to support you and the wider family. We can then start to match you with the right live-in carer.

They will move into your home and occupy a spare room. They work to a schedule, based on your care plan. This means they will get regular breaks and downtime, which can also help you to maintain a sense of independence.

The live-in carer will be in your home around the clock, which can offer a great deal of reassurance to your loved ones. If you have an emergency at night, there will be someone there to help you manage this. This is great if you live alone and don’t have any family in the immediate area.

What can live-in carers help with?

Your care plan is as unique as you are, so every live-in care arrangement will be different. Your live-in carer can help with a wide range of household tasks, including cooking, cleaning, laundry, food shopping and gardening. They can also help with pets if required.

They can also help you with getting around, including getting in and out of bed. They help with personal care, including washing, dressing and grooming. They also provide medical support, such as keeping track of your medications and ensuring you attend your GP and district nurse appointments.

A live-in carer can also help you to stay connected to your community and your loved ones. They can help you video call family members who live far away, arrange reunions with family, and coordinate social events to help combat loneliness. Your live-in carer will also be an excellent source of companionship.

Live-in care FAQs

How is this different from a care home?

With live-in care, you don’t have to sell your home and move into a care home. You can still access round-the-clock, personalised support, but you can do it all in your own home.

Do live-in carers do the cleaning?

Yes, a live-in carer can help with light cleaning. For larger properties that require a lot of attention, we would recommend hiring additional support to ensure your live-in carer can focus on care-driven tasks.

Is live-in care cheaper than a care home?

While this may not be the cheapest care option, we believe the benefits outweigh the costs. When you consider the cost of uprooting your life, downsizing your home and relocating to a care home, the cost of live-in care is often preferable.
