A live-in carer can help with everything that you would expect from a residential care home worker. The main difference is that they will offer bespoke, one-to-one support and will also help with additional household tasks. For example, they might help to care for your pets or help with light gardening tasks. Every care plan is unique to the client, but you can expect support in the following areas.
Live-in carers are multifaceted companions dedicated to providing comprehensive support tailored to the unique needs of each individual. Their role extends far beyond conventional caregiving, encompassing a wide array of tasks and responsibilities. Here’s an overview of what live-in carers can help with:
Personal care, including assisting with dressing, bathing and grooming. They might also support personal hygiene routines. They also provide mobility assistance, ensuring safe mobility within the home. They might also help with domestic tasks such as keeping the home tidy, cooking and meal planning.
Live-in carers can also provide highly specialised support for medical conditions, including catheter care and incontinence support. They might also help with healthcare monitoring, including administering medications or attending GP appointments. And finally, they also provide companionship and emotional support to prevent loneliness.
