Who is Live-in Care for?

If you or your loved one needs extra support to live independently in your own home, live-in care could be for you.

Our carers live with their clients to provide peace of mind that help is always on hand when you need it, while letting you get on with the lifestyle you enjoy.

There are many reasons why a person might opt for live-in care, whether for companionship, help with mobility or support with personal care. Here’s how our live-in carers could help you.

Dementia Care

Live-in care for Dementia gives individuals 24/7 access to a highly skilled carer with minimal disruption to their usual routine. Our live-in carers offer support with personal care, meal preparation, companionship and more in a setting that’s familiar and comfortable, minimising anxiety and uncertainty.

Care for Progressive Health Conditions

A live-in carer who deeply understands the needs of their client can make an enormous difference for people living with conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease or Multiple Sclerosis. Live-in carers allow people suffering from a long-term condition to continue living independently, with round-the-clock specialist care to ensure their comfort and safety.

Live-in Care After a Stay in Hospital

People who’ve been hospitalised following an illness or injury will likely want to return home as soon as possible. Live-in care provides this freedom by allowing individuals to recover in their own homes, with fully-trained carers on hand to make sure they’re well supported.

An Extra Pair of Hands

If you or your loved one is suffering from illness, an injury or limited mobility, it can be hard to stay on top of everyday household tasks. Live-in carers lighten the load of household chores by providing an extra pair of hands, whether that’s to run errands, help take care of a pet or cook a nutritious meal.

Respite Care

Taking a break to recharge is essential to avoid burnout and provide the best care. At Greenwood, we pride ourselves on recruiting the most caring carers, who’ll support your loved one during periods of respite.

Combating Loneliness

According to Age UK, more than one million people over 75 in England say they go for over a month without speaking to a friend, neighbour or family member. Live-in carers provide more than practical help; they are the friendly face that’s always there for a cup of tea and a chat, and can help their clients get out and about in the community as well.

Live-in Care for Couples

For elderly couples, the prospect of residential care can mean a lack of privacy and the disruption of family life. However, it is sometimes too much for one spouse to meet all the care needs of their loved one. A live-in carer can bridge the gap needed to ensure couples can continue living independently.

Whatever your situation, our team will work with you to develop a personalised care plan for you or your loved one. We take care of all the logistics, so you can focus on what really matters.
