What is live-in care in Coulsdon?

Live-in care is a popular alternative to solutions such as residential care in a care home or sheltered facility. You get to remain in your home and access bespoke care when you need it the most. It’s also a popular alternative to a home support visitor, as you can get help throughout the day, not just during limited windows.

With a live-in care arrangement, the carer lives in your home and provides support according to your care plan. They become an important part of your household, offering support that allows you to remain independent for as long as possible. This arrangement can provide much-needed peace of mind to family members if they are caring from a distance, as there will always be someone around in the event of an emergency.

How does live-in care work?

We start with an initial consultation so we can get to know you and your needs. This is also an ideal opportunity to learn more about our services and how we can help. This meeting enables us to create a care plan and then match you with the ideal carer for your needs. We have carers with a wide range of experience to ensure we can offer specialist support.

Your carer will move into your home and provide services based on a fixed schedule. This will be optimised to your needs, but will also ensure that your carer has regular downtime and breaks. We can update and amend your care plan as required. This could mean increasing the level of support required for those with deteriorating conditions, and reducing support for those in recovery.

What can live-in carers help with?

The role of the live-in carer is to provide personalised and one-on-one support based on your individual needs. This could include anything that a residential care home worker would assist with, alongside additional tasks that will be unique to your household. For example, your carer could help with caring for your pets or with light gardening.

The most common tasks completed by a live-in carer are related to personal care. This could include washing, dressing, grooming and other personal care tasks. They might help around the house by going food shopping, planning healthy meals, cooking and doing light housework. For larger properties, we recommend additional cleaning staff so your carer can focus on supporting you rather than property maintenance.

Live-in carers will also provide limited health care support, such as making sure you take the right medications on time, or taking you to your GP appointments. They can also offer catheter and incontinence care. Finally, live-in carers also provide companionship and emotional support. They are essential for staving off loneliness and ensuring individuals do not feel isolated due to their condition.

Live-in care FAQs

How do I choose a live-in carer?

You don’t need to choose your live-in carer as we are experts in matching you to a carer that can meet your needs. We use a number of factors to determine who will be an ideal fit for your circumstances. We also have carers with extensive experience with specific conditions.

Do live-in carers stay overnight?

Yes, your carer will live in your home and have their own room for the duration of their placement. This is not the same as 24/7 care, as this would require multiple carers working in a shift pattern. Instead, your carer will provide support on a fixed schedule according to your needs.
