Finding Live-In Care in Lancaster

Exploring the benefits of live-in care in your own home, Home Instead Lancaster reveals how this option provides personalised and dedicated care in comfort of your own home.

At Home Instead we understand the value of home—it’s more than just a place. It’s where memories are made and cherished, and where you can maintain your own routines, independence and comfort.

When the time comes that you or your loved ones need more than our regular home care visits, live-in care can be offered by Home Instead to allow you to stay in the home you love in and around Lancaster, Morecambe or Garstang. 

What Is Live-in Care?

Live-in care means having a Care Professional stay in your home with you, around the clock. This enables individuals to stay safely and independently in their own surroundings while receiving all the dedicated care and support they need and can also offer support to a spouse

The service can include personal care, administering medication, meal preparation, home help tasks, and offer companionship—all customised to fit the unique needs and lifestyle of each individual. Home Instead Lancaster prides itself on a tailored approach. We carefully match Care Professionals with clients, creating a harmonious living situation. Support and companionship is available as needed, with the freedom to personalise care to your preferences and needs.

We regularly check in on our client and Live- in Care Professional, to make sure all is running smoothly, and we can arrange to cover sickness on holiday, removing the risk of a gap in care.

Comparing Live-In Care versus Residential Care Home

Live-in care is often a viable alternative to a residential care home, offering numerous benefits that both clients and their families appreciate. With Live-in Care there is no need to uproot from the family home. This means a cherished environment, with personal history and familiarity, continues to be the backdrop of your life. Maintaining this consistency can be particularly beneficial for those living with conditions like dementia, where changing environments can be distressing.

Furthermore, live-in care allows clients to live life on their terms. You can decide your schedule, meals, and leisure activities, unlike in residential settings where routines can often be set and communal. Your independence is important, and a live-in Care Professional is there to facilitate your lifestyle at home and in the local community, offering as much or as little assistance as you require. Friends and relatives can visit without restrictions, maintaining social connections. For a family or a spouse, there’s peace of mind knowing their loved one is not only safe but also staying in their own home for as long as possible.
