There are many aspects of life a carer can help with. If you are unable to do day-to-day tasks by yourself, having a live-in carer can help you manage daily life, while still maintaining your independence. This is a popular option for those requiring care, as it is a more comfortable and less clinical approach to 24-hour assistance. 

Carers can help with daily tasks, such as doing grocery shopping and helping with household tasks such as cleaning, cooking and taking care of the home. 

Live-In care assistants become part of the family

You will usually have one main carer who stays with you for the majority of the week, sleeping in your home with you so you have access to assistance whenever you need it. On days when your main carer is not working, there will be other carers available on rotation to ensure your needs are always met. 

Live-in carers are not just there to look after you. They can help support you emotionally and provide social interaction and comfort. Having a personal relationship with a live-in carer can deliver a level of emotional support that may not be found in care facilities. 

Having someone who is well versed in your daily needs and knows you better as a person due to spending a lot of time with you can aid their caregiving, so you are provided with tailored and personal care that can benefit you better.
