Live-In Caregivers – home is where the heart is
Live-in care is when a professional carer lives in their client’s home to enable their personal and domestic care needs to be met. This means they’re available to help throughout the day and at night, if necessary – although they are obviously entitled to breaks by law. Some carers live in all the time, while others work a rota pattern of, for example, two weeks on, two weeks off.
Live-in care is an increasingly popular alternative to moving into a care home – especially for those who have higher support needs. It enables you to stay in your own home and meet your changing needs. For some people it offers a way of continuing to live as independently as possible at home in their local community.Contact Us
