Here at Home Instead Poole, we understand that it can be challenging to balance the demands of everyday life and look out for your ageing family and friends. Yet, more of us are trying to do just that.
We have a team of wonderful local Care Pros who are able to support you and your loved one with day-to-day activities while remaining in the comfort of their homes. Our Live-in home care is person-centred, meaning that the care we provide is based on the individual’s needs, condition and circumstances.
Home care allows people to remain in a familiar place, surrounded by memories and items collected throughout the years. What makes Home Instead Poole unique is that we go above and beyond to build incredible relationships with our clients and provide the support they need to allow them to live a happy and high quality of life at home.
In short, Live-in Care is a form of domiciliary care. It is a safe and affordable alternative to a residential care home that gives you control over your care, bringing you consistent, one-to-one support in the comfort of your home.
A committed, full-time Care Pro will move into the home to assist with care needs as well as domestic tasks. This form of care enables you or your loved one to live independently while receiving professional care.
At Home Instead Poole, we provide one-to-one care and support in your home that ranges from companionship care to complex care for health issues such as dementia, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease and cerebral palsy.
A professional live-in care worker called a Care Pro is matched to you, your care needs and your situation. They will come and live with you, giving you one-to-one support as and when required, in the comfort of your own home.
With Home Instead live-in care, a Care Pro is chosen to be a companion to your loved one to live in their home and support with daily activities. It’s all down to you and your loved one to decide how many hours of care you require each day.
A live-in Care Pro is available not only as a companion but as a source of comfort and care, day and night. You can be confident that help is at hand for your loved one in the event that any unforeseen circumstances occur.
For people who need round-the-clock care and want to remain in their own home, we can usually arrange a team of Care Pros to ensure that your relative is receiving attentive care 24 hours a day.
A Care Pro will be matched to your loved ones based on their shared interests and personalities. We only employ kind, caring people with huge hearts, and this means a strong bond of trust is formed. The client’s needs always come first.
You and your loved one will decide the Care Pro’s usual hours of work which will be when you believe you will need the most assistance. When not working their agreed hours, your Care Pro will be able to rest, sleep, and enjoy the usual activities of living at home.
Live-in care is one of the safest care at home options available and allows individuals to enjoy life in their home surrounded by memories and collectables instead of living in a residential care home setting.
Our Live-in Care service is fully managed, and before anything happens, we work through a process of creating care plans that are entirely personalised around the needs of care. We agree on how many days a week the Care Pro will be with you, whether you need full-time care, what type of care is needed. This could be anything from personal care to specialised care such as dementia care.
Our home care services encompass all aspects of care to ensure your loved one can live independently at home with peace of mind that they are in safe and familiar surroundings.

There are common situations, conditions and events where live-in care offers the solution to challenges you might face moving forward:
Long-term conditions: Diseases like Parkinson’s require close and careful monitoring. Our Care Pros are trained to observe any changes to a client’s health, wellbeing and behaviour, ready to take action if there is ever a cause for concern.
Dementia care: Living at home means staying in familiar surroundings and maintaining those daily routines that might not be possible in residential care. Home care suits somebody living with dementia, where continuity of life in the home they have grown to love is proven to be beneficial.
Losing a spouse: When a spouse dies, it takes some time to adjust, not just emotionally but practically too. A Care Pro can be a much-needed companion and fulfil the support role that was recently lost.
Frailty: Getting older for many means not being able to do the simplest of things, even lifting the kettle to make a cup of tea. Live-in care can support someone who is becoming frail to maintain their independence and quality of life.
Unexpected illness and events: Whether it’s a fall or a sudden illness, your loved one could be susceptible to events that may quickly have a need for care. Professional help will relieve the pressure from you and your family.
