How does live-in care work?

The first step in arranging live-in care is to get in touch to arrange a consultation. We will visit your home to learn more about you and your needs. We’ll also assess if your home is suitable for a live-in carer or if changes will need to be made. This is also your chance to ask questions about home care and how it can change your life.

If you decide to go ahead, we’ll match you with the ideal carer for your needs. We’ll introduce you to your carer and work with you to create a care plan. Your carer will then move in with you and begin providing care.

Cheriton Homecare is here for you every step of the way, from your initial consultation to ongoing support. We’re always on hand to answer any questions or concerns you may have and solve any issues. We also provide a phone support service so you and your carer will always have additional support from our head office team.

What can live-in carers help with?

Carers are able to provide a wide range of care, depending on your needs. This could include:

  • Help with personal care, such as washing and dressing.
  • Help around the house, such as cooking and cleaning
  • Providing support for medical needs, including booking appointments and making sure you take your medicine on time.
  • Help with mobility issues, such as getting in and out of bed or getting out and about.
  • Live-in carers can also provide companionship and respite for family carers.

Your care plan is unique to you and will also adapt to your changing needs. Live-in carers can provide both long-term and short-term care and arrangements are flexible according to your needs. 

There are only a few things that carers cannot help with, and this typically includes anything that you would need to visit a nurse for, such as injections or dressing changes. However, our carers can help to facilitate healthcare visits to ensure you can access this specialist care.

Live-in care FAQs

How much does live-in care cost?

The cost of live-in care will vary depending on your individual circumstances and needs. We'll work with you to create a care plan that meets your needs and budget. It isn't easy to provide a direct comparison of costs when compared with residential care since you will be staying in your own home rather than moving into a residential facility.

What if I don't have a spare room?

Your live-in carer will need their own room for privacy and security, but this isn't always a spare bedroom. Sometimes a study or second lounge is suitable for conversion. We can advise on the best way forward during your initial consultation.

Can I choose my carer?

Yes, you will be involved with the selection process and you will be able to meet your carer before they move in. We'll only ever match you with a carer that we think will be the perfect fit for you and your needs.
