Live In Care
Live in care is a personal, full-time care service that provides one-to-one care for you or a loved one in the comfort of your own home. Rather than packing up all your belongings and moving into an unfamiliar nursing home with lots of different carers, 24 hour home care enables you to stay where you are most comfortable and provides a live in carer to meet your individual needs. This alternative to a nursing home enables you to retain your independence. What's more, your personal 24 hour care giver can fit in around you.
The live in carer will live at your home and sleep in their own room. They can provide personal care including washing, bathing and dressing. Carers also help with domestic chores such as cooking, cleaning and shopping. One of the main benefits of this is that it offers your family and friends peace of mind and also allows them to come and visit to chat and spend quality time with you, rather than having to worry about the housework. When the carer is undertaking duties they will wear a uniform, however when they are acting as a companion and taking you out they may wear their own clothes.
The important thing about live in care is that you are in control and can choose a care programme to suit your needs.
