What is live-in care in Kingswood?

Live-in care has grown in popularity in recent years as an alternative to residential care homes. It offers all of the benefits of a home-care visitor coming to your property, with all of the benefits of round the clock support that comes with residential care homes. This best of both worlds approach is proving to be very popular with our clients and their families.

With live-in care, a qualified carer will live in your home and provide one-on-one support based on your individual needs or limitations. They quickly become a valued member of the household, providing support and companionship. If you live alone, this can be particularly comforting as there will always be someone around in an emergency. If you live with family members, a live-in carer can ease the pressure on them to provide support.

What are the benefits of live-in care?

The most common reason individuals will choose live-in care is so they can remain in their own home and stay in the area of Kingswood they know and love. But this isn’t the only benefit. You will also be able to remain independent for as long as possible.

How does live-in care work?

We always start with a consultation to get to know you and any family members that will be involved with your care. We then match you with a carer who can meet your specific needs. They will move into your home and provide care on a prearranged schedule. This will ensure they have sufficient downtime while also giving you independence.

Live-in care is not the same as 24 hour care, as this would require multiple carers working on a shift pattern. Instead, your carer will provide care on a schedule that is based on your care plan. This plan can be updated if your circumstances change. For example, dementia care may require increased supervision as the condition progresses. But if you are recovering from surgery or injury, your care plan will recommend that you start to complete tasks independently.

What can live-in carers help with?

The role of the live-in carer is entirely dependent on the individual. They can typically assist with anything that a care home worker would assist with, but often with additional tasks such as light housework or caring for pets. Every care plan is unique to the client so we can only give a representation of the kinds of tasks that might be covered.

Carers can help with personal care, including dressing, bathing and grooming. They can also help to keep your mobile, ensuring you can move around your home safely. They will also help to keep your home tidy, and will likely be involved in planning meals, going to the shops, cooking and cleaning. They might also assist with laundry and other household tasks.

They can provide specialist support to help safeguard your health. This could include making sure you take the right medication at the right time. They could also help monitor blood glucose levels or blood pressure. If you need help to visit the hospital or local doctor’s office, your live-in carer can facilitate this.

And finally, they also provide much-needed companionship to help prevent loneliness. If you live alone, it can be very reassuring to know there is always someone around to have a catch up over a cup of tea. They can also help you to stay connected to your family and wider community.
