Private/Live in Carer
Live-in care is when the carer lives in the home with the person they are caring for and provide care whenever is required. This is what makes it the most comprehensive care. Live-in care gives our customers the advantage of full-time care and companionship within their home 24 hours a day. Live-in carers will work with the customers and their families if necessary to support them in their daily routines. Private live-in care, as any care enables people to stay in their home for as long as possible.
Live-in carers are able to assist with a wide range of duties but mostly focus on maintaining the health and wellbeing of their customers. So while they will help with household chores their main duties will include things like medication management, assisting with physiotherapy exercises, taking the customer to appointments and liaising with doctors, mobility support, grooming and personal care. Live-in carers are also a source of emotional support and friendship, it can be frustrating and very emotional for the customer to accept that they now are in the position they need care. Being a source of comfort and a friend to lean on when they are having a bad day is an essential part of being a carer.
