Live-in Care versus Care Home

Live-in Care versus a Care Home - Choose 24 hr Care in Your Own Home



What is live-in care?
With live-in care, a CAREGiver moves into the care recipient’s home to provide round-the-clock, one-on-one support. This means there’s always someone on hand even when you’re unable to visit personally, and your loved one never has to leave the environment they’re comfortable in.

Why is live-in care different to a care home?
When they move into a care home, your loved one leaves behind the familiarity and comfort of their own home.  Moving into a care home might also mean moving further away from loved ones, and they might not be able to take all of their belongings with them - or if they have one, a dear pet.

With live-in care your loved one is able to stay in their home, remain close to family and friends, keep all of their belongings and also to continue to have a pet.  

Why choose Live In Care and why choose Home Instead Farnborough, Farnham and Fleet?

We understand most do not plan for care for themselves or their loved one – and often find themselves needing support following an admittance to hospital. We also know that if care is put in place before a needs must situation, a client is 80% less likely to have a hospital admittance in the first place – and therefore able to stay safely in their own homes for longer.

Our Live-In Care services are rated Outstanding by the CQC and are tailored to fit around the specific needs of you or your loved one’s life. We are 'Outstanding' because we take exemplary care of our GAREGivers. We treat them like family, and they treat our clients like family. We have won several awards for our employee satisfaction and are very proud to have the happiest CAREGivers in the area.

Would live-in care be less costly than a care home?

Home Instead, offers live-in care in the Farnborough, Fleet, Aldershot and Farnham areas as an alternative to having to move into a care home.  Our CAREGivers are experienced in dementia care and all our live-in carers have previous experience of providing live-in care.

Our live-in carers reside with you in your property but you decide how many hours in a 24-hour period you will need their support and assistance.  Your carer will take their rest breaks around their working times.  This can be very flexible for you.  Costs will depend upon your care needs so we would need to consult with you before being able to provide you with details.  Read more about live in care costs versus care home costs.
