What is live-in care in Notting Hill?

Live-in care is a popular care arrangement where a carer will live in your home and provide care on a predefined schedule. Rather than give up your home and move into a shared care facility, you can stay in familiar surroundings and continue to live an independent life. There is no need to sell your home, downsize, move away from family, or give up beloved family pets.

If your family is struggling to provide care or they are caring from a distance, they will have the added peace of mind of knowing that there is always someone close by to help. While your carer doesn’t work around the clock, they are present in your home, providing reassurance and companionship. In the event of an emergency, they will also be there to assist you.

Who is a good candidate for live-in care?

Live-in care support can benefit a wide range of people, including the elderly and those with physical and mental disabilities. If you want to remain in your own home but need support to do so, you could be an ideal candidate for live-in care. You will be empowered to continue doing the things that you have the capacity to do, but someone will be there to support you with the things that you might struggle to do alone.

If you struggle with mobility or carrying out everyday tasks, a live-in carer could help you to live safely and independently. Live-in care is also ideal for dementia patients as their condition progresses, as staying in familiar surroundings can help to reduce stress and agitation. Live-in care is also particularly suited for parents of disabled children who need extra support.

What can live-in carers help with?

Live-in carers provide support with a wide range of client needs. The care plan is unique to the client and can adapt and change as their needs change. It would typically include personal care, help around the house, and providing companionship.

Personal care might include things like dressing, bathing and grooming. It could also include things like continence care and catheter support. Our live-in carers are specially trained to provide care, even in the most complex cases.

Household help could include things like meal planning, food shopping, cooking, housework, caring for pets, laundry and ironing. A live-in carer can also work closely with your doctor or healthcare professional to monitor health conditions, make sure you take medication or help you follow a prescriptive diet.

And finally, live-in carers also provide much-needed companionship. If you live alone after your partner has passed on, it can be reassuring to know there is always a friendly face around to join you for a cup of tea and a chat. They can also help you stay connected to your friends, family and community to avoid social isolation.

Live-in care FAQs

Is live-in care cheaper than a care home?

The costs associated with live-in care are very different to a care home. For a couple living together, it can be far more cost-effective to have a live-in carer than to choose a care home. There are also the cost-benefits of not having to sell your home or downsize.

How many hours can a live-in carer work?

A live-in carer will typically work between 8-10 hours per day, not necessarily consecutive hours. They will work to a set schedule that allows them regular breaks and offers the client some independence and time alone. Since they sleep in the property, they will be there at night for emergencies, but they do not work 24 hours a day and are not considered to be “on call”.

Do live-in carers stay overnight?

Yes, one of the benefits of a live-in carer over a home care visitor is that they will be there at night and in the morning. This can be a huge source of comfort for family members as they will know there is always someone in your home in the event of an emergency.
