What is live-in care in Hurstpierpoint?

Live-in care is growing in popularity as an alternative to residential care. Rather than moving house and giving up the home you love and cherish, you can stay in your own home and still access the care you need. We match live-in carers with clients in need of personalised support, either because of advanced age, disabilities or injury.

The carer can help you to retain a sense of independence while also making it possible to remain in your own home, surrounded by a lifetime of cherished memories. This will give peace of mind to family members who might be struggling to provide the right level of care, or are trying to care from a distance.

The primary benefit of choosing live-in care is that you will get to stay in your own home. This can be particularly helpful for those living with cognitive decline as familiar surroundings are linked to improved health outcomes.

How does live-in care work?

Every live-in care arrangement begins with an initial consultation to learn more about your needs and where you could benefit from some additional support. Next, we create a care plan that will address these needs while still allowing you to live with dignity and independence.

We match you with the right carer and they will move into your home to provide care on a personalised schedule. While they are available throughout the night, this isn’t the same as 24/7 care. Your carer will still have breaks and downtime, which also gives you a chance to enjoy time with friends, family or alone.

What can live-in carers help with?

Live-in carers are trained to provide a wide range of services, depending on your unique needs. This could include household support, mobility, personal care, or simple companionship.

Examples of household tasks could include food shopping, meal planning, cooking, light housework, garden, caring for pets, laundry and ironing. For very large properties, we recommend hiring a separate cleaner so your carer can focus on personal care.

Personal care could include tasks such as helping you to get dressed in the morning, bathing, grooming, shaving, putting on makeup or styling your hair. They can also help with continence care, including catheter support. Personal care can also include support taking the correct medications at the right time, or monitoring health conditions.

Live-in carers are also a much needed source of companionship. Old age, injury and disability can be incredibly isolating, so your carer will always be there for a chat and a cup of tea. They can also help individuals to remain connected with their family, friends and wider community.

Live-in care FAQs

How do I choose a live-in carer?

Choosing a live-in carer can be quite complex, which is why many people trust the process to an agency. When you turn to an agency for help choosing, you will benefit from their experience and network, which will ensure a much better match for your needs.

Is live-in care available 7 days a week?

Yes, a live-in care arrangement is for 7 days a week, unless you have a reason to specify otherwise. For example, you might only need support during the week and your family will provide care at the weekend. While live-in care might be available 7 days a week, it isn’t available 24/7. Your carer will be working to a schedule that ensures they have breaks and time off.
