When considering which is the most appropriate care option, it can be best to decide between 24-hour live-in care or moving into a care home – often the decision can come done to your budget, availability of places in a home or not knowing very much about how live-in care works, or assuming that it must be very expensive.
24-hour care at home can be more affordable than you think. And this care option, unlike residential care, allows your loved one to always remain in their own home living in familiar surroundings with the support of a trained carer. If they live alone, they can also benefit from the companionship of a friendly face, whilst receiving the specialist support, they need.
Whether your loved one is suffering from dementia, the effects of a stroke, disability or any other condition, live-in care ensures that they have care that is personalised to their needs, delivered in surroundings they most feel comfortable in and on a one-to-one basis.
Because our carers provide live-in care on a 24-hour basis, they are able to dedicate their time fully to the client, ensuring they have everything they need and are getting the right care at the correct times.
24-hour care at home can consist of providing personal care, domestic assistance or helping with household duties such as cooking and shopping.
As a company, we place considerable emphasis on the process of matching our carers to the clients that they will look after. It is important that from the outset they build the best possible professional working relationship and level of trust, as they will need to spend a lot of time together. The carer will often be required to provide personal care such as showering, dressing and assistance with toileting and it is important that both parties are comfortable with these personal interactions.
A live-in carer stays with you at home, in their own room, so they are on hand to provide 24-hour home care and ensure your loved one feels safe and always looked after.
All of our carers are professionally trained, and any new carers spend time shadowing an existing carer, so that they understand our processes and the level of care that we expect our clients to receive. We then aim to closely match a carer with a client. Matching on the basis of the care needs and the personality & interests of both the carer and client.
At Live In Solutions, we pride ourselves on providing the best possible care to our clients and we specialise in providing 24-hour live-in care. As a company, we feel it is important that people are given the option to stay in their own home whilst getting the support they need. Whilst an individual may require care, life should retain some sense of normality with the ability to see family and friends whenever they like.
We understand that family and work commitments can make it difficult to provide 24-hour home care yourself, but by choosing a live-in carer you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
