Live in care is for adults who need one-to-one varied support and who want to stay in their own home

Live in care offers tailored one-to-one attention day and night with care, support and companionship from a carer who lives with you in your own home. Support is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Live in care is a viable alternative to moving into residential care or having to sell your home. It can be a more affordable option than a care home and results in peace of mind for the person receiving the support and their family. 

We specialise in designing live in care around you and your specific needs. Trust and genuine companionship are at the heart of our service and we carefully select the team members who will live with you. They will be matched to your needs, interests, views, likes and dislikes. Continuity of care means that you will have two or three people on your care team so you always know and trust the people caring for you. This means they will quickly become a friend as well as someone who can provide the care you need. 

Who is live in care suitable for?

Live in care is suitable for adults who need one to one or specialist care. This could be an adult living on their own or with their spouse or family. It's common for live in carers to support older couples in their own home. Live in care is also suitable for those who just want companion based one to one care which gives them that reassuring flexibility, company and security.

Is live in care right for you?

  • One-to-one care
    Sometimes your needs will be more varied and can't fit in to homecare services that are more fixed. If this is the case and you still have a strong desire to stay in your own home in familiar surroundings then live in care is right for you because it offers flexible care and companionship 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 
  • A helping hand across a range of options
    Live in care provides a complete care and support package. With live in care your carer can provide support with everything from personal care and companionship through to help with house keeping, medication management and things as unique as pet care or helping you keep up your hobbies and interests. 
  • Live in care means flexible care
    A live in care companion will always be on hand. This means that you don't have to plan specific activities and outings in advance if you don't want to. The joy of live in care is that you can go back to being as spontaneous as you like! With a trusted carer on hand you can go to an event that comes up out the blue, go shopping when you feel like it or seize the moment and do something outdoors whilst the sun is shining. 
  • Live in care helps to reduce worry
    Qualified and experienced carers can provide support in the provision of care that may cause discomfort, embarrassment or that requires specialist training. By providing support with medication and being present in your home at all times this can reassure you and your family that you are safe and secure.
