Compassionate Live-In Care in Dover

Live-in care is where a care assistant lives with you for a period of time. You can have live in care for just about any period of time you want from one day upwards.

Short term live-in care is ideal for hospital discharges – if you are scheduled to go into hospital why not book your discharge package with us before you go into hospital. It’s also ideal for respite care, where, for example, your regular carers go on holiday.

Why Choose Live-In Care

There are so many reasons to choose live-in care. Many of these reasons centre around living in the home you love.

You are not alone in appreciating the importance of your home. Human beings have from earliest times made homes for themselves. Your emotional connection and familiarity with your home help create a sense of well-being.

Being familiar with your home is important for many reasons and should not be underestimated. Knowing your physical environment can be particularly important as you get a little older, especially as your body starts to let you down. Your familiarity with your home is equally important if you are living with dementia.

Live-in care also allows you to stay with your pets, to spend time in your garden, to continue with your hobbies and pastimes and to be close you your community.

Live-In Care and Your Community

Your family, friends and wider community are important for your well-being. Communities vary for each of us. Yours could be a local pub, a darts team, a football club, a local choir and so many other things.

Whatever your community is it will share some characteristics with communities everywhere. They are the places where you feel safe, comfortable and content. Your community is very much an extensions of your homes]. Your wider network of significant people in your life will often be associated with your community.

How Does Live-In Care Work?

All the home care services that we offer can be provided on a live in basis. Your live-in care assistant will need a room where she or he can sleep and have some privacy and facilities for washing and dressing.

Live-in care provides care during the day. Your live-in care assistant must have the opportunity to sleep during the night. He or she will also need to have a two hour break during the day. During this time, your care assistant will be free to leave your property. We can cover these breaks with other care assistants if necessary.

If you regularly need to get up during the night, a package of overnight care might be something for you to consider.

If live-in care can be provided on a long term basis, in which case you will probably have two or more care assistants who provide care on a rota system.

As live-in care can have so many variations, it’s particularly important to speak with us about your individual circumstances.
