What are the benefits of live-in care?

There are many reasons why people choose a live-in carer or support worker. Here are the main ones:

  • Staying in your own home in the environment you love the most
  • Avoiding change – daily life can stay much the same with that extra support.
  • Flexible care built around you – your carer helps as much or little as you like.
  • Keeping the same routines, hobbies, and interests.
  • Companionship, whether it’s sharing meals, watching TV, or enjoying days out.
  • Family and friends can still come and go as normal.
  • Emotional support –  many carers become more like friends to our customers.

Your live-in carer will also handle:

  • Cooking meals – preparing nutritious meals according to your tastes.
  • Running errands – whether it’s food shopping or fetching your prescription.
  • Housekeeping – keeping your home clean and tidy.
  • Overnight care – call up to twice each night.
  • Pets – feeding, walking and caring for your pets if you have any.
