What is live-in care in Merton?

Live-in care is fast becoming one of the most popular care arrangements in Merton and the surrounding areas. It is an alternative to sheltered housing or a care home. Instead of relocating to find the support you need, a carer lives in your property and provides support on a pre-agreed schedule.

Your carer becomes part of the household and offers support in all areas of your life, including personal care, managing the household, some medical support and help with staying mobile and active. They also provide much-needed companionship to help prevent loneliness and isolation. You will also have the peace of mind knowing that there is someone in the house if you have an accident in the night.

What are the benefits of live-in care?

There are so many benefits of choosing live-in care. And these benefits can be felt by both the client and their family. The main reason that individuals choose live-in care over alternatives is so they can remain in their own home in familiar surroundings.

This is thought to be linked to improved health outcomes. But it isn’t the only benefit. You’ll also have a dedicated carer who will get to know you and your routine, so they can provide a bespoke level of care that enables you to stay independent.

How does live-in care work?

We start with an assessment to determine what level of support you need and how best we can provide this. We’ll then match you with a carer and they will move into your home. They will work to a specific schedule, so while they might be available around the clock for emergencies, they will have time off to themselves. This will also enable you to enjoy your freedom and personal time.

Your live-in carer will provide your care plan as requested, offering suggestions for how this might be modified and improved if your care needs change. Having a carer in your property at night time can help you to feel more secure while also offering peace of mind to family members that you are safe in the event of an emergency. This can be particularly helpful if your family is caring from a distance.

What can live-in carers help with?

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.

Live-in care FAQs

Is live-in care cheaper than a care home?

Live-in care is not the cheapest option available, but it is often preferable so that you don’t have to sell your home and move to unfamiliar surroundings. When you consider the potential upheaval, live-in care often provides better value.

What is the difference between live in care and hourly care?

With live-in care, your carer will have a room in your home and provide care on a schedule. With hourly care, they will visit your property for fixed hours. This could be a different carer for every visit.
