What is Live in Care?
Live in care means that you will have someone living with you in your own home 24/7. It is often much more cost effective than Residential Care and means your loved one can stay in their own home, in the familiar surroundings that they know. You or your loved one can still live a full and independent life, choosing when and where you go out, what food you want to eat and what time you get and up and go to bed. All care plans are tailored around you or your loved one’s needs. Your carer can support you with as little or as much as you like. Support could range from:
- Personal care, including washing, toileting and continence management
- Morning and bedtime routines
- Cooking fresh, home cooked meals
- Light household tasks
- Medication reminders and collecting prescriptions
- Grocery shopping
- Accompanying services for visiting friends, attending appointments, holidays and social events.
Why Choose Live in Care?
Live in care gives you or your loved one personal choice every day. Whether it be what time you get up in the morning to what you want for Wednesday nights dinner, the choices of how you live your life are made by you. Our carers are specifically matched to your needs and make a real difference to the lives they support.
