What is live in care in Bromley?

Elderly care is often limited to care homes and sheltered living. While these might help to provide a minimum level of care to a lot of people while using minimal resources, this arrangement doesn’t work for everyone.

The most common complaint about care homes and sheltered living is that the individual has to move out of their home and often away from the area they are familiar with. Live in care allows you to stay in familiar surroundings while still accessing bespoke, one-on-one care to enable you to thrive.

What are the benefits of live-in care?

The main benefit of live in care is that it will enable you to stay in a familiar environment, surrounded by a lifetime of memories.

When you choose live in care from Cheriton Homecare, you will also enjoy the following key benefits:

How does a live in care arrangement work?

Live in care is a unique care arrangement where your carer will move into your property and occupy a spare room in your home. This allows them to be on hand to provide personalised and bespoke care that works with your schedule.

We start with a consultation to learn more about your needs. From there, we match you with a carer that can best respond to your unique needs and requirements. Your carer will move into your home and provide personalised support according to your care plan.

This is not the same as 24/7 care, but it is a step up from residential care. Having a carer in your home can enable you to live independently for as long as possible. It allows people to stay in familiar surroundings, to keep their pets, and to remain connected with the family, friends and community.

What can live-in carers help with?

Live in carers provide help with a wide range of tasks according to your requirements. This could include assistance with everyday care, such as dressing, bathing and grooming. It could also include incontinence care or catheter support. Some people need help getting around the house safely, so they might have support for getting in and out of bed.

Live-in carers can also help with household tasks and maintenance, including buying food, preparing meals, light housework and caring for pets. If you have a very large property, it would usually be a good idea to hire a cleaner, rather than leave all of the household maintenance to your carer.

Live in carers can help you to attend GP appointments, monitor health conditions, make sure you take your medication on time and support you to maintain a healthy lifestyle. And finally, they also provide a much-needed source of companionship. Loneliness can be as detrimental to health as some major health conditions, but a live-in carer will always be there for a chat and a cup of tea.

Live-in care FAQs

Does the carer live in my home?

Yes, with a live in care arrangement, your carer will live in your property and become a trusted member of the household. When you are matched with a carer, they will move into your home and occupy a spare bedroom. This will enable them to provide bespoke care on demand, including during the night or early morning, according to your needs.

Can I change my care plan?

Care plans are designed to be adaptable to your changing needs. For example, if you are recovering from surgery, your care plan will be designed to slowly increase your confidence and independence. In contrast, if you are living with a degenerative disease, your care plan will be designed to adapt to your changing needs and will enable you to live in your own home for as long as possible.
