What is 24-hour/Live-in Care?

LIVE-IN CARE INVOLVES A DEDICATED, FULL-TIME, CARER MOVING INTO THE HOME TO SUPPORT WITH CARE NEEDS AS WELL AS DOMESTIC TASKS.

It’s the new standard for elderly care, allowing your loved one to remain as independent as possible while remaining a cost-effective alternative to more traditional care options.

A live-in carer can provide support with a number of things – from care needs and support with medication prompting to housekeeping tasks and companionship.

If you’re looking at care options for a loved one but are uncomfortable with sending them to a residential or nursing home, live-in care could be the solution. Live-in care fees are often comparable with care homes, with the additional benefit of your loved one receiving one-to-one personalised care in their most familiar environment.

We know that deciding on the best care for your loved one can be a challenging task, so we’ve detailed everything you need to know about live-in care.
