We provide people with Live-in Care to help people with independent living in the comfort of their homes. Many people need long-term care and help with daily living such as medication management, housekeeping and personal care.
While our CAREGivers provide some of the best elderly care and end of life palliative care services, It's not just elderly people that can improve their home life with specialist care services.

What is Live-in Care?
Live-in Care 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.
At Home Instead Wandsworth, we provide one-to-one support in your home that ranges from companionship and befriending to complex health care for health issues such as dementia, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease and cerebral palsy.
A professional live-in care worker called a CAREGiver 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 CAREGiver 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 CAREGiver 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 if any unforeseen circumstances occur.
For vulnerable people who need specific types of care around the clock and want to remain in their own home, we can usually arrange a team of CAREGivers to ensure that your relative is receiving attentive care on our 24-hour care plan.
Based on shared interests and personalities, a CAREGiver will be matched to your loved ones. We only employ kind, caring people with huge hearts, which forms a strong bond of trust. The client’s needs always come first.
You and your loved one will decide the CAREGiver’s usual hours of work when you believe you will need the most assistance. When not working their agreed hours, your CAREGiver will be able to rest, sleep, and enjoy the usual activities of living at home.
Our level of care is one of the safest care at home options available. It allows individuals to enjoy life in their homes 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 CAREGiver will be with you, whether you need full-time care, what type of care is required. This could be anything from personal care services 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 in safe and familiar surroundings.

Being with your loved ones should be quality time. That’s why it’s okay to accept that families often need help to carry some of the responsibility of ensuring your loved one stays 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 home, where they would prefer to be and where memories are cherished, while family are reassured that someone is always there to help.
What do live-in CAREGivers do?
They will be your companion and reside in your home, helping you carry out those tasks you need them to. More importantly, they will become a familiar face and company source, whether it’s cooking a memorable meal, watching a favourite TV programme, or reminiscing about the “good old days”.

Choosing Live-in Care?
There are everyday 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 CAREGivers 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 CAREGiver 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.
