How does live-in care work?

It all starts with an assessment to determine the level of support you require to remain in your own home. We can also seek input from family members to determine how best to support you. We will then match you with a carer who is able to provide personalised support based on your needs and wishes.

While your live-in carer will be in your home around the clock, they do not work 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We will determine a schedule for their working hours based on your needs, while still ensuring that your carer gets sufficient breaks and

A live-in carer in London will also provide the peace of mind knowing that someone will be close by if you suffer an accident or emergency at night time. This can be a great source of reassurance to your relatives, particularly if they are caring from a distance.

What can live-in carers help with?

Every care plan is unique to the individual, and what works for one client might not work for another. In general, a live-in carer can help with day-to-day activities like food shopping, meal planning, cooking, light housework and gardening. They can also assist with pet care as required.
