Private Live In Care Agency – What Is Live In Care?
and how does it compare to other types of care?
Live-in care is when a carer comes and stays at the client’s house for a number of days or weeks at a time and provides one to one care.
For many people, having an experienced live-in carer to assist them in their own home is preferable to the upheaval of moving to a care home.
With live in care, you will be able to stay in your own home environment and neighbourhood, surrounded by your possessions, pets, family and friends. If both you and your partner need live in care support, it’s likely that this option will be much less expensive than both of you moving to a care home and will of course allow you to stay together. So, in order to move onto that next step, you need to reach out to a live in care agency where you will find the help you need to get help at home.
Private live in care means that you can have the privacy you want, when you want it. You will have a plan of hourly or 24 hour care that suits your individual needs and you won’t have to adhere to the routines of a home care establishment. Some of your domestic chores can be done by your live in carer and you may choose when to wake up, what you will eat and how you will spend your day.
You can have friends and family visit when you choose and your experienced live in carer will be sensitive to your need for privacy. Your live in carer can liaise with other health professionals and pick up prescriptions and run other errands.
Your primary live-in carer is likely to work for a few weeks before giving a comprehensive handover to the secondary live in carers. They will both get to know you as a person, your likes and dislikes, your routine and how you would like to be supported at home. Health and wellbeing outcomes can be much better when you stay in your own home, and is why a large proportion of the population look to live in care as their choice of personal private care.
