What are the benefits of live-in care?
One of the primary benefits of live-in care is the ability to receive personalised, one-on-one care. The caregiver is solely focused on the individual’s needs, providing assistance with daily activities, medication management, and medical care as needed. This level of individualised care can be particularly important for individuals with complex medical conditions who require specialised care.
Live-in care also provides peace of mind for family members who may not be able to provide around-the-clock care themselves. Knowing that their loved one is receiving high-quality care and support in the comfort of their own home can be a significant relief for family members, allowing them to focus on spending quality time with their loved one rather than worrying about their care needs.
Additionally, live-in care can help individuals maintain a sense of independence and autonomy. Rather than having to move to a care facility, live-in care allows individuals to remain in their own home, surrounded by familiar surroundings and cherished possessions. This can be particularly important for individuals living with conditions such as dementia, where familiarity can help reduce confusion and agitation.
How does live-in care work?
At Home Instead Cardiff, we work with each family to create a customised care plan that meets the individual’s specific needs and preferences. This includes selecting a caregiver who is a good match for the individual in terms of personality and experience. Our caregivers are trained to provide high-quality care and support, including assistance with daily activities, medication management, and specialised care for individuals living with conditions such as dementia.
Live-in care is provided on a 24-hour basis, with the caregiver living in the home with the individual receiving care. The caregiver is available to provide assistance and support whenever it is needed, including during the night. This can provide peace of mind for individuals who may require assistance during the night, such as those with mobility issues or medical conditions.
