What is live-in care in Wandsworth?

Live-in care is a unique care arrangement that does not require you to sell your home or move into an impersonal care home. Instead, you stay in your own property and a live-in carer moves into your property. They will have a spare room in your home and provide care according to a predetermined schedule and care plan.

This arrangement is popular with those who do not want to go through the stress of moving to a new home or losing their sense of independence. It’s also ideal if your care needs are temporary, as you won’t have to give up your home. And if your family members are struggling to provide care and want to give you the best possible support, this arrangement is ideal.

What are the benefits of live-in care?

The main benefit of live-in care is that you do not need to sell your property and move away from everything familiar and comforting. You stay in your own home surrounded by your possessions.

This arrangement has been linked to improved health outcomes in many cases. There are other benefits to choosing home care, including peace of mind for your loved ones. If they are caring from a distance, they will feel much more secure knowing that you have someone to hand during the night if you have an accident and need support.

Having someone live in your home can also provide excellent companionship. Here are just some of the incredible benefits you will enjoy with Cheriton Homecare:

How does live-in care work?

We start with a care assessment to determine what level of support you need and the areas of your life where you would benefit the most from a dedicated carer. We will then match you with a carer and create your live-in care plan. This plan is only a guide and can evolve as your care needs change.

Your live-in carer will move into your property and provide care on a fixed schedule. While they will be around, they will not be working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your carer will also have time off and may use this time as they please. Many clients like this arrangement as it means that they still have their solo and independent time.

What can live-in carers help with?

Live-in carers provide a wide range of support depending on your needs and your physical and mental capabilities. This could include help around the house with tasks like meal planning, food shopping, light housework, gardening and taking care of pets.

You might also decide you need help with personal care, including grooming, dressing, getting into and out of bed, and going to the bathroom. Our live-in carers can also provide continence support and catheter care.

They can also help you to keep on track with medications and special diets, or coordinate with your GP or district nurse to ensure you attend checkups. And finally, they can also help you to stay connected with friends, family and your local community. Your live-in carer can help you to stay active and get out and about while still feeling independent and in control.
