What is Live-in Care?
With live-in care a dedicated carer lives in the Client’s home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to meet all their needs. Typically, live-in care is provided by two professional and highly trained carers who rotate on a weekly shift pattern.
Our service provides genuine continuity of care as the carer lives with the client, enabling trusted friendships to grow and flourish. As well as meeting our Clients’ physical needs, we work with them to create a bespoke care plan which incorporates their goals, hobbies and personal interests.
Live-in care enables people to continue to live independently at home, confident in the knowledge that one-to-one care is on hand 24 hours a day.

Continuity of care
As the care is delivered by the same people each week it ensures a greater level of understanding and companionship.
Live-in carers provide one-to-one dedicated care. They are not restricted by how much time they have for each resident.
Peace of mind
Having someone on hand round the clock provides peace of mind for clients and their families.
Having a dedicated carer allows family members to be included in their loved ones care plans.
It can be cheaper than both residential care and residential nursing homes and is particularly economical for couples.
Our Awards and Reviews
A life enhancing alternative to a Care Home
Given the choice, most people would choose to remain at home whilst receiving care. However many people think that moving into a care home is the only option. This is not the case – live-in care provides a preferred alternative where people receive the professional support they require in the comfort of their own home.
Whilst every circumstance is different, care homes can be sterile and institutional facilities which impact residents’ independence, freedom and choice. Sadly, negative news stories are common with 97 percent of respondents to a recent survey suggesting they would not want to move into a care home. According to Age UK, 40% of residents in care homes are living with depression and apathy which can lead to them “giving up on life” – sadly, statistics show that the average length of stay in a single residential care home in England that ended in a person’s death was just over two years.
Fortunately, live in care provides a life-enhancing solution enabling individuals to continue to enjoy life and independence at home with a highly trained carer on hand day and night. One of our clients describes our live in care service as “the support I require to continue to live life the way I choose, whether it be going to bed and getting up when I choose, eating what I choose and socialising with friends when I choose.”
