What is live-in care Mid Sussex?

Live-in care is a type of care that allows people to stay in their own homes rather than going into a care home. It means having a professional carer live with you in your home, providing you with the support and assistance you need on a day-to-day basis.

A live-in carer will move into your home and become part of your household. They will provide you with all the care and support you need, including help with personal care, domestic tasks, managing medication and providing companionship.

Our live-in service provides eight hours of care per day, spread out over 24 hours, seven days a week. If more time is required, we can supplement this with additional carers. And you’ll always have the support of our head office team.
