Live in Care
For many people with physical or mental impairments, living independently becomes increasingly difficult, and the option of moving into residential care seems to become inevitable. There is, however, another option: live-in carers can provide round-the-clock support and enable clients to continue to live in comfort and with a higher degree of independence.
The advantages of having a live-in carer, rather than moving into a residential home, are centred on the preservation of home comforts and personal routines. Avoiding the upheaval of moving and the standardised schedules of care homes can be of great benefit to someone, whatever their condition. Staying at home may also mean staying closer to friends, family or even much-loved pets.
At Greenwood Homecare, we will develop a personalised care plan, tailored to each client’s preferences and needs, which your live-in carer will deliver. As well as providing twenty-four hour care, a live-in carer can assist with household tasks, accompany their client on trips out or visits and also become a friend and companion.
Live-in care is suitable for those suffering with long-term or degenerative conditions, but can also be adapted to suit your needs. Short-term or periodical care can help with recovery from injuries and illnesses or with the worse outbreaks of intermittent conditions. Another important role of live-in care is providing periods of respite for family or friends who are otherwise shouldering the responsibility of full-time care.
With Greenwood Homecare, all aspects of your carer’s training, schedule and employment are dealt with by our management team, meaning that there is no need for you to worry about issues such as holiday cover. You can rest assured that your carer’s leave will be covered by qualified and familiar replacements.

“I hired Greenwood Homecare to look after my elderly mother while I was abroad for a few weeks on business. Their service was fantastic, right from the initial meeting through to the delivery of their care. My mum spoke very positively about the carers looking after her, finding them friendly and trustworthy, and able to take the initiative. I felt like my mum was in safe hands while I was away. Great team who clearly care about what they do - would definitely use again and recommend to others.”
