What is live-in care in Banstead?

Live-in care is a popular alternative to care arrangements such as residential care homes or sheltered accommodation. The key difference is that you get to stay in your own home, and a carer moves in with you to provide bespoke, one-to-one support. This arrangement can be ideal for short-term placements, such as helping an individual to recover from surgery. It’s also suited to long-term placements, such as dementia care or end of life care.

You will have access to your own highly skilled and experienced carer who is specially trained to provide support for your condition. They become a part of the household, offering practical support but also companionship. They can also help you to remain connected to your community by helping you to get out and about.

How does live-in care work?

We start with an initial meeting to get to know you and any family members that might be involved in the decision making process. This is also your opportunity to ask questions and learn more about live-in care. We’ll then create a care plan and match you with a live-in carer that will be best-suited to meet your needs.

Your carer will move into your home and be available on a fixed schedule. We have to ensure that our carers get enough downtime and breaks, so they won’t be available 24/7. However, they will live in your home, so if there is an emergency in the night or while they are on a break, you have the added peace of mind knowing that someone is always close by.

What can live-in carers help with?

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.
