Live in Care Services

What does live-in care cover? As much as you need it to! A live-in carer would be with you in your home 24 hours a day, available to help you day or night. Our trained staff can help you with any of the following:

Personal care at home supporting the elderly and frail with personal daily routines that they find difficult or impossible to do on their own. These can include:

  • Getting out of bed in the morning
  • Help with washing and dressing
  • Assistance with personal appearance – shaving, hair drying etc
  • Toileting/incontinence
  • Getting reading for bed and getting to bed in the evening

These tasks are always carried out with dignity and respect for our clients. Independence, wherever possible, is always encouraged and supported.

Practical help at home assisting with daily or weekly tasks:

  • Housework
  • Preparing and cooking meals
  • Washing up
  • Helping you to go shopping (or doing it for you)
  • Pet care – feeding, cleaning, walking
  • Light gardening work
  • Managing household bills or paperwork

Practical help outside the house

  • Taking you shopping
  • Escorting you to appointments
  • Social trips

Companionship on a daily basis is often very welcome to people who are elderly and who may find going out difficult. Our carers will provide that element of warmth to the person they are caring for.
