How does live-in care work?

The most important thing about live-in care is that you will be able to stay in your own home, in familiar surroundings. A live-in carer will move into your home and provide round the clock support, according to your bespoke care plan.

A live-in carer can provide support with personal care and mobility. They are also essential for helping individuals to feel connected to their family and the wider community. By choosing a local West Sussex care provider, you’ll benefit from their local knowledge and expertise.

Live-in care also allows you to stay in your own home, which can offer a great deal of reassurance. It’s also a lot less stress than downsizing to a care home. By taking a flexible approach to care providing, we can ensure you receive care that suits your lifestyle.

What can live-in carers help with?

The type of care you receive will depend on your individual care plan. This is agreed in advance, but it is also flexible to your changing needs and preferences. As a general guide, our live-in carers can provide support with household tasks such as cooking, cleaning, gardening and pet care. 

Another essential role of the live-in carer is to ensure your medical needs are met. They can coordinate with your GP and other care providers to make it easier for you to take medications and monitor your health, including taking blood pressure and blood glucose measurements.

The social aspect of live-in care is also very important. They will provide emotional support and companionship. They will also help you to maintain social connections and facilitate contact with your family. This could mean helping you with video calling or arranging visits.

Live-in care FAQs

What is the difference between home care and live in care?

With home care, someone visits your property to provide support and then leaves. With live-in care, your carer lives in your property and provides round the clock support. This often leads to improved continuity of care.

How do I find a good live-in carer?

It’s important to choose a reputable agency for your live-in carer. While hiring independently is an option, this doesn’t always offer the same level of reassurance that comes with working with an agency.

How many weeks can a live in carer work?

Our carers need a break too. They will often work in blocks, followed by a short or longer break. During breaks, we can provide a respite carer on a home care basis to ensure continuity of care.
