Live-in

Live-in

Live-in care helps you live the life you want on your own terms. By getting to know your preferences and routines, we will put a unique package of support in place with a carefully chosen caregiver. Together, we help you stay in the home you know and love.

Live-in care is assistance and care provided to you in your own home, enabling you to retain your independence and live the life you want to lead. From support for those living with dementia, the elderly or those with complex medical needs, live-in care allows you to receive person-centred one-to-one support on your terms.

As the name suggests, a carer lives with you in your home to provide care whenever you require it, giving you and your family peace of mind that you always have someone on hand should you need them.

What does a live-in care service include?

The everyday services that a carer might provide include, but are not limited to:

  • Personal care and medication support
  • Complex care such as PEG feeding or catheter management
  • Ensuring that dietary and nutritional needs are being met
  • Companionship and support
  • Housekeeping and other daily domestic tasks
