What is Live-in Care?

Live-in care is an increasingly popular alternative to care homes for people who require round-the-clock support, but would prefer to stay in their own home.

Whether it’s being near friends and family, maintaining routines or staying part of a much-loved community, live-in care prevents people from having to choose between independent living and their safety and comfort.

Live-in carers stay in the home of their clients to support them to live the lifestyle they enjoy. Being in the family home means our carers are available 24/7, while respecting the individual’s independence and privacy.

The benefits of live-in care:

  • Greater independence for the individual
  • Freedom to stay in the family home
  • Proximity to community services, family or friends
  • Carers fit around your routines and lifestyle
  • Personalised care plans provide tailored support
  • A familiar face and companionship

While live-in care is a great option for anyone seeking full-time support, it can be particularly valuable for people living with Dementia, where moving to a new environment may cause unnecessary stress and anxiety. Live-in carers provide peace of mind that there’ll always be someone there when you need them.

How could live-in care help me or my loved one?

Our warm and highly skilled carers provide a variety of services tailored to fit the needs of the individual. This could involve:

  • Light housework and domestic help
  • Shopping and preparing meals
  • Help with personal care such as bathing and toileting
  • Caring for pets
  • Accompanying clients on outings
  • Companionship
  • Mobility support
  • Help remembering medication
  • Respite care
  • Fixed term care for recovery from an injury or illness

At Greenwood Homecare, we’ll work with you to create a personalised care plan that your live-in carer will follow. We care deeply about matching clients with the perfect carer, ensuring happy partnerships between the two.
