What is live-in care in Croydon?

Live-in care is fast becoming the most popular type of care arrangement. Rather than moving into sheltered living or a care home, you can stay in your property and your carer will occupy a spare room. This will ensure you get access to the one-on-one care that you need while also having the peace of mind knowing that someone is always close by in the event of an emergency.

Your live-in carer is there to help you with the tasks that you struggle the most with, while allowing you to remain independent in other areas. This means your care plan is designed for you, and you can live with dignity and independence for as long as possible.

What are the benefits of live-in care?

There are many reasons that our clients choose live-in care over other care arrangements. The most common reason is that they want to stay in familiar surroundings in their own home. This makes it an ideal choice for long term and short term care.

When you choose Cheriton Homecare as your care provider, you’ll also get to enjoy the following incredible benefits:

  • Maintain independence

Through live-in-care, individuals can stay in their own homes for longer and maintain a sense of pride in their independence.

  • Local carers

  • Family support

When choosing live-in care, the whole family can be involved in care decisions and planning, ensuring everyone is on the same page.

  • Incredible value

There are considerable savings to be found when choosing live-in care over the wider cost implications of residential care.

  • Flexible care

Through live-in care, we can provide exactly the right level of care and support, and adjust this to meet the changing needs of the client.

  • Improved health outcomes

Studies have found that continuity of care delivered through live-in care arrangements can lead to improved health outcomes for the client.

How does live-in care work?

Every care arrangement is different, but we start with a consultation so we can learn more about you and how we can help you. We can then create a care plan and match you with the ideal carer for your needs. We carefully select carers based on their unique skills and experience.

The carer will move into your home and provide care according to your care plan schedule. This predictability not only ensures they have downtime and breaks, but it also makes sure that you are free to enjoy your home and your life. You get to maintain your independence while knowing that there is someone close to hand if you have an emergency.

What can live-in carers help with?

The type of care and support you receive will all depend on your needs. Our live-in carers are trained to provide general support, including help with personal care and household tasks. Some will also have specialist training to deal with specific conditions such as dementia or mobility issues. Care is always tailored to your specific needs and requirements to ensure you can live as independently as possible.

Support could include household tasks, such as preparing meals, food shopping, cleaning, laundry and light housework. With larger homes, we usually recommend hiring a cleaner so that your live-in carer can focus on personal care and support.

You might decide you would like extra help with personal care tasks such as washing, dressing, grooming or hair care. We can also provide catheter care and continence support where required. For those with medical concerns, our team can make sure you take the right medications at the right time, or help you to monitor your vitals such as blood pressure and glucose levels.

And finally, another key part of the live-in carer role is companionship. Illness, age and disability can all be very isolating, so your live-in carer will help you to stay connected to your community while also providing much needed companionship in your home.

Do live-in carers stay overnight?
