What is live-in care in Lewisham?

Live-in care is similar to residential care or a home care visitor, but it offers some distinct advantages over these care arrangements. To start with, live-in care offers round the clock support, which cannot be replicated by a home care visitor. It also offers personalised and one-on-one support, which clients cannot access in a care home.

Another distinct advantage of live-in care is that the client doesn’t have to go through the stress of selling their home, downsizing, or moving to an unfamiliar area. This makes it ideal for those with short-term needs, such as individuals recovering from surgery. It’s also ideal for those with degenerative conditions, as familiar surroundings can provide improved health outcomes.

What are the benefits of live-in care?

There are many reasons that our clients choose a live-in carer over alternatives such as residential care or a care visitor. For bespoke and personalised care, no other care arrangement comes close. Access the support you need, without having to sell your home, downsize, or move to a new area.

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?

Every live-in care arrangement is unique because it is perfectly tailored to the individual. We start with a consultation to get to know you and your needs. Your family can be involved in creating your care plan, to make sure everyone’s needs are heard and met. We then match you with the right carer, based on your requirements.

The carer will move into your home and live in a spare bedroom. They provide care based on a predetermined schedule, so you have a sense of structure to the support. This also ensures that your carer has regular breaks and downtime, which can also help to increase your sense of independence and enable you to continue enjoying your home.

What can live-in carers help with?

Carers provide support based on the needs of the client, so we can completely personalise your care plan to ensure your needs are met. Our carers are trained to provide the same kind of support you would expect in a care home or sheltered living facility. The main difference is that you receive personalised and one-on-one support.

This could include assistance with personal tasks such as washing, dressing or grooming. Where required, carers can also provide continence care. For those living with medical conditions, their carer might help them to attend GP and hospital appointments, take medications at the right times, follow a prescriptive diet, or monitor things like blood pressure and blood glucose levels.

If you need help around the house, your carer could provide support with household tasks such as food shopping, cooking, light housework and caring for pets. They might also help with small gardening tasks or watering your plants. For larger properties with lots to clean, we recommend hiring a cleaner so that your carer doesn’t spend all of their time on household care.

Another key area of support that is often overlooked or forgotten is the companionship aspect of having a carer living in your home. Carers help to stave off loneliness by being available for a chat and a cup of tea when you need it. They can also help you to stay connected to your friends, family and wider community by making it possible to get out and about or host visitors in your home.

Live-in care FAQs

Is live-in care better than residential care?

We believe there are many benefits to choosing personalised and bespoke care over residential care. If remaining in your own home is important to you, then live-in care could be the ideal arrangement for you.

Do live-in carers stay overnight?

Yes, your live-in carer will stay in your home overnight, but they are not available 24/7. Round the clock care is a very different service and would require multiple carers. Instead, your carer will provide support on a predetermined schedule.
