Live in Care FAQs

A caregiver will be matched to your loved one, based on their shared interests and personalities. We only employ kind, caring people with huge hearts and this means a strong bond of trust is formed. The client’s needs always come first.

You and your loved one will decide the caregiver’s usual hours of work which will be when you believe you will need the most assistance. When not working their agreed hours, your caregiver will be able to rest, sleep, and enjoy the usual activities of living at home.

They will be your companion and reside in your home, helping you to carry out those tasks you need them to. More importantly, they will become a familiar face and a source of company whether it’s cooking a memorable meal, watching a favourite TV programme, or reminiscing about the ‘good old days.

Our local caring team sits at the heart of your community – we’re here to offer you all the support you need. Our live-in caregivers are hand-picked for you and are the next best thing to family, developing fantastic relationships with clients. They have at least 1+ years of experience and are trained in all aspects of care delivery, including specialist support. Feel free to tell us what’s important to you, and we’ll go above and beyond to find a Care Professional who ticks all the boxes to meet your exact needs.

There are common situations, conditions, and events where live-in care offers the solution to challenges you might face moving forward:

Long-term conditions: Diseases like Parkinson’s require close and careful monitoring. Our Care Professionals are trained to observe any changes to a client’s health, well-being, and behaviour, ready to take action if there is ever a cause for concern.

Dementia care: Living at home means staying in familiar surroundings and maintaining those daily routines that might not be possible in residential care. Home care suits somebody living with dementia, where continuity of life in the home they have grown to love is proven to be beneficial.

Losing a spouse: When a spouse dies, it takes some time to adjust, not just emotionally but practically too. A caregiver can be a much-needed companion and fulfil the support role that was recently lost.

Frailty: Getting older for many means not being able to do the simplest of things, even lifting the kettle to make a cup of tea. Live-in care can support someone who is becoming frail to maintain their independence and quality of life.

Unexpected illness and events: Whether it’s a fall or a sudden illness, your loved one could be susceptible to events that may quickly need care. Professional help will relieve the pressure on you and your family.

The first step towards live-in care is arranging a care consultation with us. This is where we learn about your situation and discuss options for you that might best suit your loved one’s needs.

Personal Care FAQs

Having support with personal care, whether it is help with dressing, bathing, or assistance with meals and medication, can make a big difference to your quality of life. We understand that personal care can be sensitive to each individual. That’s why our Care Professionals are discreet and take time to build a close rapport with our clients to make sure it is a more individual and personal experience. 

Different people have different needs and we adapt our personal care services to suit your specific requirements. Our caregivers are trained to provide care with dignity and respect. 

Our care and support also take into account other things such as health conditions or the frailties associated with ageing and we can offer care at home services tailored for those living with life-changing or long-term illnesses such as dementia, Parkinson’s, and other conditions. As with everything else we offer, our personal care services are tailored to you and your wishes.
