The pace is set by the client and not by the clock
Live-in care is an increasingly popular alternative to care homes, enabling the client to stay independent in their own home with specialised 24-hour care.
Our services cover more than just home care for the elderly; it is also ideal for adults of any age who are coping with a disability that means they need some additional support to remain independent.
What is live-in care?Live-in care is just one of our private home care services. It is an increasingly popular alternative to assisted living in a care home where care is received in the client’s home.
Live-in care includes:
- Companionship and friendship
- Meal preparation
- Light housework
- Shopping, trips, visits, errands
- Recreational support, social events
- Hobbies and seeing friends
- Mobility support and personal hygiene
- Care at home for dementia patients
- Care at home for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other long-term illnesses
It is particularly effective for people living with dementia, where 24-hour care at home can be extremely important. Continuity, routine and familiar surroundings are very reassuring, and can vastly improve quality of life. For younger clients, home care assistance enables them to remain independent in their own home and take a full part in society.
