The Benefits of 24-Hour Live-in Care

24-hour live-in care is an ideal solution for elderly and vulnerable people who wish to remain living at home. A live-in carer provides peace of mind to the whole family; the person receiving care will always have a professional carer on hand to assist them.

Whether you or your loved one requires a high level of care or would benefit from companionship, full-time live-in care can be a real lifeline. This type of care is fitting for elderly and vulnerable people who require some support to live independently at home.

We can help you find a carer who will fit in with your routine at home and provide reassurance that your or your loved one will remain safe and have company at all times.

We Can Help

Our 24-hour live-in carers can help with lots of different tasks around the home such as:

  • Helping you with your night time and morning routine
  • Dressing and undressing
  • Washing, bathing and other personal hygiene tasks
  • Administering medication
  • Emotional support
  • Help with errands
  • Help with getting out and about

The Benefits of 24-Hour Live-In Care

Full-time live-in care offers so many benefits. Here are just a few of the biggest advantages:

1. Stay Where You Are Comfortable

Certain conditions such as dementia can cause confusion and upset, which is often exacerbated by the process of moving into a care home. On the other hand, staying in your own home gives you stability and lets you surround yourself with cherished people, pets, and memories. By choosing 24-hour live-in care you can help maintain the stability of day-to-day life.

2. Specialist Care

If you or your loved one requires more specialist care such as help with catheters, stomas or ventilation equipment, 24-hour live-in care is a reassuring solution. We can match you with a carer who has the relevant professional training to support your medical needs. This means you can live your life comfortably at home, safe in the knowledge that there is always someone on hand to help.

3. Companionship

24-hour live-in care can also help to combat loneliness, which is a major problem for many people in the UK. We know that loneliness and isolation can be a particular concern for elderly people and their families.

4. One-to-one Support

With 24-hour live-in care, your carer is there to support you 24/7. Alternatively, in a care home setting, there are often relatively few staff compared to the number of residents, which means it is sometimes difficult to give every person the attention they might want or need. Our carers are chosen by us specifically to fit your needs and lifestyle. They will listen to your needs and put your wellbeing above all else. This means that you will be listened to and someone will be there to prioritise you at all times.

The Next Step

Our live-in care is competitively priced from £700 a week. This is considerably more affordable than many care home fees, particularly for those who require nursing care.

The first step towards arranging live-in care is to arrange a free needs assessment. Just call 0800 008 7000 and we can schedule a telephone assessment at a time that suits you. From there, we will work closely with you and your loved ones to find a carer who meets all your needs. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can call the number above or contact us online at any time.
