What is live-in care?

Live-in care is a type of home care where a carer will live in the home of the person they are caring for. While this does mean that they are around 24 hours a day, they do not provide round-the-clock care. Instead, they provide care on a pre-approved schedule, helping with set tasks throughout the day. This helps to create a structured routine for the client.

Live-in carers can help with a wide range of tasks, in addition to helping with mobility and providing much-needed companionship and support. The role of the live-in carer is to help the client to live their life to the fullest, whatever that means for the individual. Some people need help staying connected with their community while others simply want to be able to remain independent for as long as possible.

Choosing live-in care is an excellent alternative to residential care or sheltered living as you don’t have to move house or move to a different area. This will ensure you stay connected with your friends, family and your wider community.

What can live-in carers help with?

Live-in carers can provide assistance with a wide range of tasks, from helping with personal care to providing support for medical appointments. They can also help with household tasks such as cooking, cleaning and washing. Many people also choose live-in care so they can have someone to talk to and provide companionship.

The type of tasks that a live-in carer can help with will be agreed upon as part of the care plan. This will be tailored specifically to the needs of the individual and can be changed as and when required. We rate care needs on a scale from low need to critical need. This will determine the level of support provided.

Live-in carers can only provide support to the client, not other members of the household. This allows us to focus our attention on the person that needs the support the most.

Live-in care FAQs

What do I have to provide for a live-in carer?

The live-in carer will need their own bedroom, which should be furnished. They will also need access to a bathroom. Other than that, they will just need access to food and drink. Privacy and security are important considerations for both the client and the carer and we will work with you to ensure that both are upheld.

What can't live-in carers help with?

Live-in carers are not trained medical professionals and cannot administer medication or provide dressing changes. This work is best left to district nurses, but your live-in carer can help you to access this care and ensure you can attend all medical appointments

Do live-in carers help with the cleaning?

We recommend that light housework may be included in your care plan, but a live-in carer's skills and abilities should be focused on providing the best possible care for you. If you require more intensive cleaning, we recommend that you engage a professional cleaning service to come in as required.
