What is live-in care?

Live-in care is an ideal form of long-term assistance for those with complex medical requirements, as it allows them to stay in their own home and offers a number of benefits. These include round-the-clock care tailored specifically to their individual needs, basic life support when needed, companionship and emotional aid, plus help with medication management, household chores, and meal preparation. Home Instead South Lanarkshire are well-established providers specialising dementia care or specialist care for conditions like Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson’s disease. Our services have been designed to improve the quality of living within familiar surroundings.

A committed, full-time care professional 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.

Anybody seeking continuous personalised attention from professionally trained experts would highly benefit from this kind of service. It allows autonomy while ensuring that all daily activities have adequate cover at any time throughout day and night shifts.

Get back to spending quality time with loved ones.

Being with your loved ones should be quality time. That’s why it’s okay to accept that families often need help carrying some of the responsibility of ensuring their loved ones stay safe and well. In fact, introducing care early in the ageing process can prevent the speed of health deterioration.

It’s an ideal scenario: your loved one can stay in the family home, where they would prefer to be and where memories are cherished, while family members are reassured that someone is always there to help.

Choosing Live-in Care

There are common situations, health outcomes, 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 professionals 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 life 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 professional can be a much-needed companion and fulfil the emotional 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 provide tailored support for 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 require care. Professional help will relieve the pressure from you and your family.
