Live-in Care in your ownhome

Home Instead’s Live-in Care helps you stay independent and comfortable in your own home for longer. You are matched with a Care Professional who gives you all the support you need to enjoy a high quality of life.

What is Live-In Care?

Live-in Care involves a specially chosen Care Professional moving into their client’s home. They provide companionship and practical support throughout the day, enabling that person to continue living the life they have always known and doing the things they enjoy the most.

  • Get one-to-one care and personal attention from a dedicated Care Professional
  • From companionship to personal care, your Care Professional can help with everyday tasks

The benefits of Live-in Care

Live-in Care enables you to remain in your beloved home while receiving support from a dedicated Care Professional – somebody who becomes part of your family. Live-in Care can also be a more affordable alternative to hourly care and residential care.

If you do not require 24-7 care, but instead need someone to be available on and off through-out the day to help with you daily living activities, then our day care options provide the support needed while allowing for personal space and without the additional costs of having someone there constantly. At night a Live-in Care Professional may also be on hand for emergencies as well as providing the peace of mind that you are not at home alone.

Why choose Live-in Care at home?

For many people who receive care, having continuity of both the environment and Care Professionals is hugely important. When family and friends don’t live nearby or are unable to visit regularly, Live-in Care ensures an older loved one is not lonely or isolated and can continue living well.

Live-in Care is highly personalised and helps somebody live on their terms with a routine designed around them providing meaning and purpose, not just stopping them from counting down the hours until the next care visit but also to feel stimulated and engaged.

Who does Live-in Care benefit?

Live-in Care is flexible, meaning that there are a range of situations and conditions it can support. It’s companionship-led, so Care Professionals aren’t just on hand to help with daily tasks, but to share the activities that make life more enjoyable. Respite or short-term care can give a family carer a much-needed break. It can also provide additional support when needs are greater, for example post-hospital discharge. 

Specialist Live-in Care helps people living with conditions such as Dementia, Alzheimer’s, or Parkinson’s. It gives them a personalised plan designed around their own needs, which doesn’t only provide care by the hour but also additional support if and when needed.Live-in Palliative and end of life care can even help to meet complex needs and provide dignity at the most difficult of times.
