What is Live-In Care?

It’s a way to remain independent at home while receiving practical care, support and companionship from your hand-picked Care Professional. Live-In Care is a cost-effective solution to around the clock support, providing families with complete peace of mind to get back to busy family life without the additional stress of being a full-time family carer.

Our specially-trained Care Professional can help with a huge variety of activities, including;

  • Personal Care (toileting, bathing & dressing)
  • Medication Assistance
  • Meal Preparation
  • House-Keeping and Errands
  • Being a Companion

Why choose Live-in Care?

Live-in care enables you to remain in your beloved home while receiving support from a dedicated Care Professional – somebody who becomes part of your family. Live-in Care can also be a more affordable alternative to hourly care and residential care. In addition to this, other benefits include:

  • Loved one can stay in their own home
  • 1-1 companionship and care
  • Optimising your time on your daily schedule
  • Fresh meals – choose what you want, when you want
  • Personal care – when you want it instead of a strict rota
  • Stay home with pets – who we can care for as well
  • Safety & security – enjoy peace of mind knowing someone is always there
  • Flexibility – we work around your lifestyle and routines

How does it work?

Firstly, you will be involved in our Care Professional matching process, ensuring that your loved one feels happy and comfortable with the person that will be living alongside the  in their home.

You and your loved ones will then decide the Care Professional’s usual hours of work and create a schedule that provides you with the assistance and companionship that you need. When not working their agreed hours, your Care Pro will be able to rest, sleep, and enjoy the usual activities of living at home.

Any Questions?

  • How is Live-in Care different home care?

A home care arrangement usually involves a Care Professional popping in to see their clients once or twice a day, perhaps to help them get up and dressed in the morning, or to help them prepare dinner and bathe in the evening. Live-in Care is different because a Care Professional moves into the family home so they’re available 24/7 for whatever kind of support their clients need. 

  • Who is it suitable for? 

Live-in Care is a great option for anyone who needs extra support to be able to continue living in their own home. This could be due to a condition like dementia or mobility issues that increase the risk of falling. We create individual are plans for all our clients, as no two people’s needs are the same. 

  • Will a Live-in Care Pro accompany me or my loved one on trips?

When there are appointments or social outings planned, your Live-in Care Pro will be able to help you or your loved one get to them safely and be a companion if that’s what you’d like. We find that some of our clients are keen to do more outside the home with the peace of mind that Live-In Care provides. 

  • When does a Live-in Care Pro take time off and have breaks?

Every Live-in Care Pro is entitled to 14 hours of breaks over the course of a working week, this can be divided in a way that suits you best. Commonly it is split into two hours each day, or a few afternoons a week. There are also care options available for their time off so that a replacement Care Pro stays instead, or family or friends can support if preferred. 

  • Can I arrange Live-in Care for a short period?

Short term Live-in Care is a great option if recovering from an injury, or for respite care for families. We’ll be able to arrange a short-term Care Pro to support you for as long as you need them. 

What’s Next?

If you think Live-In care is the solution for you and your family, we highly recommend arranging a care consultation with our Care Manager, Lisa. She will then visit your home to discuss your needs and expectations around Live-in care and whether Home Instead is the right choice to you.

The consultation is an opportunity for you to get to know us more and ask questions. It usually takes a couple of hours to make a plan to fit around your needs. We will talk through all of the different options available and what would be the best recommendation for your own individual circumstances.
