Live in Care
In Home Care offers you options. We offer the freedom to live as you want regardless of your age or any physical or mental disability; we offer you independence.
Times have changed, these days we have more choice about how and where we receive care. No matter what our age or disability we can now remain in our own homes for as long as we want. With the affordability and many benefits of ‘live in’ care we now have more options available to us. Thankfully residential and nursing homes are no longer our only choice, and often they are our last resort.
Live in care is a liberating option for those who wish to stay home and retain their independence. Live-in care is often considered to be the first choice when deciding on both short-term or long-term care for a loved one.
What is Live-in Care ?
Live-in care is full-time, ‘round-the-clock’ care provided at home to anyone over 18 who has physical or mental health needs. In Home Care offers a ‘one to one’ bespoke care service for individuals and couples with a wide range of dependency levels and needs.
Whilst caring for you, our care worker would ‘live-in’ your home. Understandably, this may seem daunting at first; however, it is also very reassuring giving great peace of mind to our client and their family alike.
We provide a variety of care packages depending on your care needs, and these can typically include:
- Companionship and conversation
- Personal care and medication
- Preparation and serving of meals
- Attending to pets
- Light housework and shopping
- Day to day tasks and outings
- Lifting and manual handling
What are the benefits of having a live in carer?
When considering care, most people prefer live in care in their own home rather than residential care. It gives you the security and comfort of staying in your own familiar surroundings, safe in the knowledge that someone is there to help you live your life the way you want to live it.
There are many benefits when you decide to have live-in care as opposed to going into a care home. These include:
- Being able to maintain your independence
- Being in control of your life
- Feeling secure whilst keeping the familiarity of your own home
- Keeping your day to day relationship with your pets and loved ones
- Peace of mind
- One to one care
- Staying within your local community
- An affordable alternative to residential care
- Protection of your home as an asset regards care costs
Whether you are young or old and have physical, learning or mental disabilities, are elderly and frail or suffering from Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s or terminally ill, our live in care workers will provide on-going day to day quality care for you. Care will be adapted as needed to your everyday needs to help you get the most out of your daily life.
How much does live in care cost ?
Being the preferred option for most people, live in care is very much an affordable alternative to residential care. In Home Care provides live in care packages for individuals or couples. Live in care typical costs range from £795 to £1600 per week. No ‘one’ care package is the same as our care packages are tailored specifically to each and every individual’s needs.
What can I expect from my carer ?
All of In Home Care workers are personally interviewed by us. They are fully vetted, references are taken, DBS checked (criminal record checked) and we ensure all the training is up to date.
The most important thing is that our carers are genuinely interested and committed to care. We need to feel that they have a special empathy and understanding, we only employ carers that we would have care for our own loved ones … and this is our promise.
We monitor the care we provide, and we have constant contact with our carers, clients and their families alike. You can be assured that the care we deliver will be of the highest quality allowing you to live your normal life without the constant worry of a loved one.
