What is live-in care in Reigate?

Live-in care is growing in popularity as an alternative to residential care homes and sheltered housing. Rather than downsizing and moving to a new property, you can access the care you need in the comfort of your own home. This could be ideal for a short-term arrangement or for long-term care. We also offer end-of-life hospice care.

Through our services, you will have access to the best quality care, delivered with compassion and understanding. Your carer will become a valued member of your household, delivering expert care that meets your needs while still allowing you to live with dignity and independence.

What are the benefits of live-in care?

There are many benefits to live-in care for both the client and their wider family. The biggest perk is that you get to stay in your own home, surrounded by a lifetime of memories. You’ll also have access to bespoke care that is tailored to suit you.

How does live-in care work?

Every live-in care arrangement is unique and designed to meet the needs of the client. We start with an initial meeting to learn more about you and your specific needs. This is also an ideal opportunity to ask questions about the live-in care arrangement. We then propose a care plan that will be suited to your needs.

We match you with a carer and they will move into a spare room in your home. They deliver care on a schedule according to your care plan, with regular downtime and breaks. They don’t deliver 24/7 care, but it can be reassuring to know someone is in your home overnight in the event of an emergency.

What can live-in carers help with?

Our live-in carers are trained to provide the same level of care you would expect from a residential care home. The difference is that you will have one-on-one bespoke care, instead of sharing your carer with other residents. Your carer can also help with household tasks, such as food shopping, cooking, light cleaning and laundry. We identify the areas where you need the most support, while still allowing you the independence to complete tasks that are within your ability.

Live-in carers can also provide personal care, such as dressing, bathing and grooming. They might help with personal hygiene routines, while also delivering catheter care and incontinence support. They are also there to help ensure good mobility, allowing you to get around your home with confidence.

A live-in carer is also a caring and compassionate companion, ideal if you want someone around for a chat and a cup of tea. They will also be on-hand to help you get out and about, staying connected to the community in Reigate. They can also help with health monitoring, working alongside your GP to ensure you can attend appointments and check health vitals such as blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

Live-in care FAQs

Are live-in carers a good idea?

Live-in care could be the ideal solution for some individuals. If you want to remain in your own home and retain a sense of dignity and independence, then a live-in carer can help you to achieve this. Live-in care is designed to be responsive to your needs, so you won’t be given a one-size-fits-all care plan.

Do live-in carers need their own room?

Yes, you will need to provide an adequate living space for your live-in carer. They should have their own bedroom, and then have access to shared parts of the property such as the bathroom and kitchen. While they are in your home all the time, they will also have time off and should have a place to unwind and relax.
