What is live-in care in East Sheen?

This is fast becoming the most popular type of care arrangement, outpacing residential care such as care homes and sheltered housing. Rather than giving up your home and moving into smaller accommodation, you can stay put and still access the support you need.

The live-in carer matched to your needs will quickly become like part of the family. They will provide support in the areas of your life where you might struggle to complete tasks safely, while still allowing you to remain independent in areas where it is safe to do so. Your home is still your own but you will have peace of mind knowing someone is close by.

How does live-in care work?

Since everyone is unique and their needs are very different, we start with you. Our initial assessment helps us to create a care plan that is based on our recommendations and your preferences. This care plan may change over time so nothing is set in stone.

We then match you with a qualified carer and they will move into your home. They provide care according to a schedule, which not only ensures that you get to enjoy your home but also ensures that your carer has downtime and plenty of breaks to rest and recharge.

What can live-in carers help with?

Your carer will help with a range of tasks depending on the areas that you need the most help with. This might include a mixture of personal care, household care and medical assistance. We can also provide carers with specialist training for individuals with complex care needs.

Your care plan could include personal care such as washing, dressing, hair care, nail care and assistance with mobility. Carers can also provide catheter care and continence support.

For help around the house, you might need assistance with tasks such as meal planning, food shopping, preparing meals, doing the dishes, light housework, doing the washing and ironing, or helping to care for pets.

Those with medical conditions to consider may get help with things like taking medication on time, sticking to a prescribed diet, or attending hospital and GP appointments. You might also need help with health monitoring such as checking your blood pressure or blood glucose levels.

Another key part of the live-in carer role is companionship. Old age and disability can be incredibly isolating, but having a carer around can be a huge source of support. They will also help you to remain connected to family, friends and your community. Your loved ones will also appreciate the peace of mind they get from knowing someone is always close by.
