Choosing Live In Care for a Loved One
As part of our Care at Home Services, A Companion will be matched to your loved one, based on their shared interests and personalities and lives in the family home to support with daily activities, you decide how many hours of care are required each day and usual hours of work, when you think you will need the most assistance. As a Live In Companion, they are a source of comfort and care, day and night. You can be confident that help is at hand for your loved one, if any unforeseen circumstances occur.For people who need day-and-night care and want to remain in their own home, we can usually arrange a team of Support Workers to support the Companion to ensure that attentive care is received 24 hours a day.
We only employ kind, caring people. They will become a familiar face and a source of company whether it’s cooking a meal, watching TV or reminiscing about the ‘good old days’. They are trained in all aspects of care delivery, including specialist support. Feel free to tell us what’s really important to you, and we’ll find a Companion to meet your exact needs.
There are situations, conditions and events where Live In care offers the solution to challenges you might face moving forward:
Our Companions are trained to observe any changes to health, wellbeing and behaviour, ready to act if there is ever a cause for concern.
Care at Home services suit somebody living with memory issues caused by dementia, where continuity of life in the home they have grown to love is proven to be beneficial.
Bereavement: When a spouse dies, it takes some time to adjust, not just emotionally but practically too. A Companion can 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 have a need for care. Professional help will relieve the pressure from 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.
