Q. What is Live in Care?

A: Live in Care is a comprehensive care arrangement where a professional carer resides in the home of the individual requiring support, providing continuous, personalised care. This type of care is designed for individuals who need assistance with daily activities due to conditions related to ageing, disability, or recovery from illness but prefer to stay in the comfort of their own homes.

Q: How does Live in Care work? A: In Live in Care settings, a dedicated carer lives with the individual in their home, available to assist round-the-clock. This includes help with personal care tasks such as bathing, dressing, and grooming; medication management; mobility support; meal preparation; and household maintenance. The carer also offers companionship, which is vital for emotional and psychological well-being.

Q: What services are included in Live in Care? A: Live in Care covers a broad range of services, tailored to the individual’s specific needs:

  • Personal Hygiene: Assistance with daily routines such as showering, toileting, and oral care.

  • Medication Management: Ensuring all medications are taken correctly and on schedule.

  • Nutrition Support: Preparation of healthy meals according to dietary needs and preferences.

  • Mobility Assistance: Aid with moving safely around the home and beyond.

  • Companionship: Regular social interaction to foster emotional health and prevent loneliness.

  • Housekeeping: Basic cleaning and maintaining a tidy living space.

Q: Who can benefit from Live in Care? A: Live in Care is ideal for anyone who requires full-time care but wishes to maintain a sense of independence by living at home. It’s particularly beneficial for those with chronic conditions, severe mobility limitations, or significant care needs due to ageing. It also benefits those who seek companionship alongside physical care.

Q: What are the advantages of choosing Live in Care? A: Choosing Live in Care offers several benefits:

  • Continuity of Care: The presence of a consistent carer builds a comfortable, trusting relationship.

  • Customised Care: Care plans are highly personalised to match the specific preferences and requirements of the individual.

  • Preserved Independence: Allows individuals to continue living in their familiar environment, which can be crucial for their comfort and emotional health.
