Happiness at Home
What is live-in care?
Live-in care offers you a way to remain independent at home while receiving care and support from a familiar face. It is the perfect solution if you simply want the confidence of having someone with you for company and companionship.
We are the UK’s leading provider of care in the home and a Live-in care arrangement is an extension of our highest quality care service. With our Live-in care option, you will receive the same highly personalised, flexible, and responsive support that we are famous for, with support when and how you need it.
Let’s face it; if age finds you lonely or needing assistance with daily activities, you may think that moving into residential care is the only option. It doesn’t have to be that way. We can provide care for you in your own home, where you stay connected to your family, friends and local community, in a cost-effective way that is practical for everyone. Family can be reassured that your needs are being taken care of while you continue to live in your familiar surroundings with your most treasured possessions and memories.
How Live-in care works
Like all Home Instead Care plans, Live-in plans are designed by a Care Manager, and based on your loved one’s specific requirements. All Care plans are built upon our relationship-based care model, which is second to none in the home care sector. Our CAREGiver lives with your loved one, and is on active duty for up to 49 hours a week. They provide your loved one’s care as and when it is needed.
What is included in our Live-in care service
Live-in care is when a CAREGiver lives with you in your home to provide companionship and support, so you can live a better quality of life whilst improving health outcomes – all in your own home.
Providing discreet and sensitive personal care
Support with bathing and getting dressed helps with self esteem.
Planning and cooking meals
Plan, shop and prepare meals according to your choice. All at a time to suit you.
Companionship as and when you need it
Whether it is sharing meals, watching TV or enjoying activities together, including days out in the wonderful Yorkshire countryside.
This includes laundry and ironing plus cleaning of all rooms and vacuuming throughout to keep your house clean and tidy.
Caring for your much-loved pet
CAREGivers will happily support looking after your pet, including taking dogs for regular walks.
Managing and administering medications
Our CAREGivers are trained in medications management and use an electronic medications system to ensure all medications are managed proactively and effectively. They will also collect prescriptions from the pharmacy.
Ensure that medical appointments are organised. Also other arrangements such as hairdressers, dentists and so on
What we will do for you
Your loved one will have their own needs. That’s why we developed a tailored Live-in care service that takes into account individual clients and their family’s needs as a whole. You might just need somebody to pop in and provide company, or you might be looking for someone to provide support with nutritious meals, getting washed and dressed and mobility.
Our Live-in CAREGivers are handpicked to match our clients based on personality and interests and you will have the ultimate decision of who becomes your Live-in CAREGiver.
What is next?
The first step towards Live-in care is arranging a care consultation with us.
We’ll send one of our registered managers to your loved one’s home who will chat with you, and any other relatives about what you believe you need from a care service. This is the chance for you to get to know Home Instead, and for us to hear what your expectations are.
Chances are, Live-in care is a new concept to you. That’s why we want to talk you through the different options available and make the best recommendation for your individual circumstances.
