Alongside their renowned home care services, Home Instead also provide top quality live-in care. Let’s look at what makes Home Instead’s approach to live-in care special.
Live-in care by Home Instead will provide you with personalised one-to-one care, available around the clock in the comfort of your own home. You will be able to remain independent with top quality care support when you need it.
You may be aware there are two very different approaches to live-in care: introductory agencies and fully managed care providers.
Home Instead offers only fully managed live-in care. This means that our live-in carers are fully trained, employed and managed by us. We put them through the same rigorous assessment and training as we put our visiting carers through, and we expect the same high standards from them.
For comparison, an introductory agency will simply introduce you to the live-in carer and it’s then over to you to manage and pay them, and pay an ongoing monthly fee to the agency.
Prior to starting the process, we will spend time with you to understand your needs and preferences so we can draw up a detailed care plan and can select the right person to live with you in your home. We will introduce our proposed live-in care professional to you before they start, to make sure they will be a good match. We will bring him or her to your house on day one to go through daily routines and how you want things to be done. We will then manage the service from our local Basingstoke office and visit regularly to ensure that you remain happy with the carer and that the relationship is good.
You can expect our care professional to be working on agreed tasks at agreed times for a total of around eight to nine hours per day, and to be available for any emergencies outside of that time. They can help you in almost any way you need them to, which could for example include:
Our values include making our care relationship-led and person-centred, which means that our care service is all about you and your needs and preferences, and making sure you are happy, well supported and as independent as you can be.
It is our objective to keep you living comfortably in your own home and on your own terms for as long as possible.
Experience the comfort, independence and companionship that Home Instead Basingstoke can offer through our fully managed live-in care services. Enjoy peace of mind with care when you need it.Peace of Mind with Home Instead
