What is live-in care in Purley?

Live-in care is growing in popularity as an alternative to residential care such as care homes. This arrangement allows individuals to remain in their own homes, which can offer improved health outcomes. It’s also ideal for short-term arrangements as you won’t need to sell your property just to access the care you need.

A carer will live in your home and provide support with tasks such as personal care, hygiene, mobility and light housework. They become a treasured part of the household, helping to ease pressure on family members to provide care and support. This arrangement is ideal for those who live alone, as there will also be someone in the home to assist in an emergency.

What are the benefits of live-in care?

The biggest benefit to live in care over other types of care is that you can stay in your own home. You don’t have to downsize or move away from the area you know and love. You can remain independent in your own home while still accessing the care you need.

When you choose Cheriton Homecare as your care provider, you’ll also experience the following benefits:

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.

How does live-in care work?

To determine if live-in care is right for you, we start with an initial consultation. This will allow us to create a care plan that outlines the areas where you might need additional support. We will match you with a carer that has the skills and experience to best support you. They will move into your home and provide care services on a schedule.

They are not available around the clock. Instead, they provide care on a fixed schedule with regular breaks and time off. This not only benefits your carer, but it also gives the client some much-needed downtime and independence. Your care plan can be updated and amended if your needs change. The priority will always be on providing the level of support that is right for you.

What can live-in carers help with?

A live-in carer can do anything that a home support worker or a residential care home worker can do. They can also help with additional tasks, such as light housework or helping to care for beloved family pets. Every care plan is unique to the client and can be adapted if their needs change.

In general, a carer might help with tasks such as personal care, inducing dressing, bathing, and grooming. They can also help with mobility, ensuring you can get around your home safely. They will also help around the house, offering support in areas such as food shopping, meal planning, cooking and light housework.

Live-in carers can also provide highly specialised support for specific conditions. This could include catheter care and incontinence support. They can also provide limited healthcare support, such as monitoring blood pressure, ensuring you take your medication on time, or helping you to attend GP appointments.

And finally, live-in carers will also provide much-needed companionship to stave off loneliness. You’ll always have someone around to have a chat with over a cup of tea. Your live-in carer can also help you to stay connected to your community and family by helping you to get out and about.
