What is live-in care in East Grinstead?

Live-in care is becoming increasingly popular as a way to access personalised care without the need to sell your home or downsize. You can stay in the home you love, surrounded by a lifetime of memories, while still accessing professional care support. We help to match carers with clients who are in need of extra support because of disability, injury, advanced age or cognitive decline.

Your carer will support you in your everyday life, helping you to live safely and with a sense of dignity and independence. They will also offer much needed peace of mind that someone will always be close by if there is an emergency. This can be of great reassurance to family members who might be trying to provide care from a distance. 

What are the benefits of live-in care?

The main benefit of choosing live-in care is that you will have the opportunity to remain in your own home. This is ideal for those with short-term care needs, but also benefits those with long-term care needs, as familiar surroundings are linked to improved health outcomes.

When you choose Cheriton Homecare as your live-in care provider, you’ll also enjoy the following 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

We only work with local carers with extensive knowledge of the local area, which means they are well-suited to provide personalised care.

  • 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?

Our live-in care arrangements start with a consultation to get to know you and learn more about your needs. We can then create a care plan that is best suited to your needs. We will ensure it enables you to retain your independence in areas where you still feel confident, while always ensuring that your safety is a priority.

We then match you with a carer that can perfectly meet your needs. They will move into your home and provide care based on a predetermined schedule, ensuring your carer will also have breaks and time off. While they will sleep in your home and therefore be available during the night if there is an emergency, they are not tasked with providing 24/7 care.

What can live-in carers help with?

Live-in carers are trained in a wide range of tasks which makes them highly adaptable to your needs. They can help with things like household support, mobility, personal care or simply providing companionship.

Household tasks could include things like food shopping, meal planning, preparing food, light housework, gardening, caring for your pets and laundry. If you own a very large property, we recommend hiring a cleaner so that your carer can focus more on personal care.

Personal care includes tasks such as bathing, getting dressed, grooming, putting on makeup, styling your hair or shaving. It could also include continence support and catheter care. You might also need help with medical issues, so your carer could help prompt you to take medications on time or monitor vitals such as blood pressure or blood glucose levels.

One often overlooked aspect of the care arrangement is the companionship. Old age, disability and injury can be incredibly isolating. Your live-in carer will always be around for a cup or tea and chat to help stave off loneliness. They can also help you to stay connected to your family, friends and wider community by helping you to get out and about.

Live-in care FAQs

How do I choose a live-in carer?

You don’t need to worry about choosing your own live-in carer when you work with Cheriton Homecare. Make the most of our extensive network of live-in carers with diverse skills to offer. Working with us is far easier than hiring your own, unreviewed live-in carer.

Do live-in carers stay overnight?

Yes, your live-in carer will live in your home and have their own bedroom. They are around throughout the night if you have an emergency, but they are not available 24/7, as this would be a different type of care provided by multiple carers.
