Live-in carers provide a wide range of services that are all dependent on the individual’s bespoke needs. This could include help with household tasks such as food shopping, meal planning, light housework, cooking, gardening and pet care.
Personal care is also an option, and this could include tasks such as washing, dressing, grooming and health monitoring. Carers can also provide continence care and catheter support. They might also coordinate with your GP to arrange appointments and make sure you are taking the right medication or following the correct diet.
Another area that your live-in carer might help is by simply providing companionship and someone to talk to. They can also help you to get out and about, attending events and social clubs. They will also help you to stay connected to your family members, whether they live in Merton or further afield.
