What is live-in care in Cuckfield?

Live-in care is a type of care arrangement that allows individuals to access professional and personalised care in their own home. Many care arrangements require the individual to move into a purpose built accommodation, such as sheltered housing or a nursing home. With live-in care, your carer will move into your property and provide care, support and much-needed companionship.

If family members are struggling to provide care, or if the care needs have evolved to become too complex for the family to handle, then live-in care could be ideal. This arrangement will give your family peace of mind that their loved one is supported in the best possible way.

What are the benefits of live-in care?

The most popular reason for choosing live-in care over other care arrangement types is to avoid the need to downsize or move away from familiar surroundings. You can continue to live-in your own home with dignity and independence while still accessing the care you need.

How does live-in care work?

To create your care plan, we start with an initial consultation to learn more about your needs and support that is currently available. Next, we match you with a carer who can best meet these needs. They will move into your home and create a care plan that offers a structured schedule for the day. This schedule is optimised to your needs, while also ensuring your carer can take breaks. 

This care plan can adjust and adapt to your needs as they change, allowing you to remain in control and feeling independent for as long as possible. If you are recovering from surgery, your carer will help get you back on your feet again. Whereas, if you are living with a lifelong condition, your carer will help you to retain a sense of independence.

What can live-in carers help with?

Live-in carers offer a wide range of care support, depending on the bespoke needs of the client. In a nursing home, it’s more likely that the care provided will be identical for all residents. With live-in care, there is far greater flexibility available.

Carers can help around the house with tasks that might be more difficult for those with limited mobility. This could include things like food shopping, meal planning, cooking, light housework, caring for pets and even completing some light gardening tasks. For larger properties, we recommend hiring a cleaning professional to avoid having your carer spend too much time on household tasks.

Live-in carers can also assist with personal care, such as dressing, bathing, grooming and assisting with mobility, such as getting in and out of bed. They are also trained to provide continence care and catheter support. Carers can also help to dispense medication at the correct times and monitor health conditions.

And finally, one often overlooked area of the live-in carer role is companionship. The elderly and disabled can often feel isolated by their condition, but a live-in carer can help to provide support in this area. Not only will they be around for a cup of tea and a chat every day, but they can also help individuals to remain connected to their family, friends and community.
