Live-in Care offers around the clock help and reassurance for you – and 24/7 peace of mind for family members.
The joy is that you can:
In short, live-in care meets practical care needs but avoids long days alone by offering companionship both at home and on outings when desired.
Typically, two or three Carers will work in rotation for 2-3 weeks at a time. The Carer does need some time off each day but cover can be provided if required.
Live-in care may suit you on an ongoing basis, or may only be a short-term component of your care e.g. for a few weeks after an operation. After that, you may simply need hourly care at times to suit you.
Our live-in Carers are all supervised and supported by our on-island Care Managers. We take great pride in matching Carers to clients. If you are unsure whether live-in care is for you we can always set up a trial – but would suggest that two weeks is a meaningful minimum.
Live-in care does need a home with a spare room and bathroom. It is often financially competitive, depending on care home choice. The first step is for one of our Care Managers to pop in and meet you, see your home and discuss your needs and questions. Staying at home safely could be just a phone call away!
