Keep your Independance with Live in Care

September, 2012

The purpose of live-in care is to give you the personal and household support you need, either on a temporary or permanent basis, to enable you to continue living safely and comfortably in your own home.

Your carer will help you as required with your personal needs and will also take care of basic household chores, leaving you free to relax and enjoy life, secure in the knowledge that you are safe from mishap or harm.

Our companies have been providing live-in care for years and they are experiencing an ever-increasing demand for this service. They can provide care to meet a wide range of different situations.

  • Short-term respite care to replace the care normally provided by a family member, who just needs a break from the responsibility of providing elderly care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Short-term respite care to look after someone elderly who has been released from hospital and needs support during convalescence.
  • Longer term support and companionship for someone who is starting to struggle with living on their own, but who does not want to be forced to go and live in a nursing home.
  • Intensive 24 hour care for someone who is bedridden with serious health problems, but who is determined to see out their days in the comfort of their own home.

Sometimes a person’s care needs will be exceptionally high, for example where they are bedridden or have serious mobility problems, or where they suffer very disturbed nights. In such circumstances, we will be happy to provide two carers on a 24/7 basis.

Where someone is due to be discharged from hospital, their period of convalescence may be significantly reduced if they can receive live-in care as soon as they get home to help them re-adjust to normal life. In such circumstances, a registered nurse assessor will be happy to visit the patient in hospital in order to assess and arrange an appropriate care service in advance.

Although these examples cover most of the situations encountered on a regular basis, each case is different, so if you are faced with a situation, which you do not recognise above.
