What is live-in care?

If you’re new to considering care options, you may not be aware of the idea of live-in care.

As the name suggests, live-in care is care provided in the comfort and familiar surroundings of your own home, by a CAREGiver who lives with you around the clock – or for a number of hours – and is directly on hand to support and look after you each day. 

Live-in care allows you to remain as independent as possible, without the need for a move away from the comfort of your known home environment.

It’s a type of care that allows for full flexibility to create a care plan that suits the specific needs of your daily life; to cater not only for your care needs, but also your individual preferences for how you wish to receive care and live your life.

Live-in care offers an alternative to care provided in a residential care home setting.

What does live-in care look like?

As with all Home Instead care, your live-in care needs are tailored to your unique requirements to ensure you receive the best possible care.

We provide varying levels of live-in care; from essential day to day support and companionship to looking after more complex individual healthcare needs.

Examples of typical live-in care might include:

  • Everyday home help – such as personal care, assistance with domestic tasks, and essential medical care

  • Companionship and support – a friendly face to chat with, a CAREGiver who can become a trusted extension of your family

  • Specialist, individual care for a particular health condition – for example, dementia care

Peace of mind without the need for a home move

Fundamentally, live-in care is about providing you and your family with complete confidence and reassurance to know that you are receiving high-quality care in the safety and security of your own home. 

How do we guarantee this assurance?

  • Award-winning quality of care by professional CAREGivers, fully trained in care delivery and specialist care support
  • Relationship-led care through a personally matched CAREGiver, helping to establish and encourage a positive and friendly one-to-one relationship
