How does live-in care work?

In most cases, a live-in carer will move into the home of their client. They will have their own room and will be on hand 24 hours a day to provide support and care. Live-in care can be arranged on a short-term or long-term basis, depending on your individual needs.

At the start of the placement, we’ll work with you to create a routine and care plan that addresses all of your needs. As time goes by, you might find that you need more or less support, and we can adjust the care plan accordingly.

Your live-in carer is not the only source of support. You’ll also be able to reach our head office staff around the clock. They are available to help solve any issues that you or your live-in carer might be having.

What can live-in carers help with?

  • Health monitoring, including blood pressure and blood glucose levels.
  • Emotional support, including conversation and companionship.

Live-in care can be adapted to meet your unique needs, so if you don’t see something on this list that you need help with, please get in touch.
