What is live-in care in Lambeth?

Live-in care is outpacing residential care as the most popular type of arrangement. Instead of moving into a care home or sheltered housing, you can stay in the comfort of your own home and receive personalised support on your terms. This means that the care is adapted to your needs rather than you being forced to adapt to the care available.

Your live-in carer will quickly become a treasured member of the household, providing support in the areas where you need it the most, whether that is with mobility or home care. Your carer is there to help with the tasks you cannot complete alone, while leaving you to continue with the tasks it is still safe for you to manage.

What are the benefits of live-in care?

There are many different reasons that our clients choose live-in care over other arrangements. The top reason is often a desire to stay in familiar surroundings, which is beneficial for both long and short term care.

How does live-in care work?

We recognise that everyone is unique, so your care arrangement needs to adapt to you. We start with a consultation to learn more about you and your needs. Next, we match you with the ideal carer to help you to live an independent life.

The carer will move into a spare bedroom in your home. They will provide care based on your schedule, allowing you to enjoy minimal disruption to your usual routine. The benefit of having someone in your home rather than a care visitor is that you could access care early in the morning or late at night with ease.

What can live-in carers help with?

Carers help with a wide range of tasks depending on your limitations and how we can best support you. Tasks could include personal care or household care. We also have live-in carers trained in specific conditions with specialist needs. We aim to match you with the carer that can best meet your requirements.

Support could include things like household tasks, including food shopping, preparing meals, doing the washing up, light housework or help with pet care. With larger homes, we usually recommend hiring a cleaner to work alongside your live-in carer so they can focus on delivering one-on-one support.

Your carer might help with personal care tasks, such as washing, dressing, grooming and hair and nail care. Our carers also provide catheter and continence support. Those with medical conditions can rest assured their live-in carer will help make sure they have the right medications at the right time, or follow a specialist diet. They could also help with monitoring health conditions, or making sure that you can visit healthcare professionals.

Another key part of the live-in carer role is companionship. Illness, age and disability can all create the ideal conditions for loneliness and isolation. Your live-in carer will help to make sure you stay connected with your friends, family and wider community. They’ll also be around for a cup of tea and a chat when you need it.
