Guardian Carers Feature on BBC News London

Filipino housekeeper carer

It can be difficult to watch a loved one struggle, especially if they are living with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Worrying about them can keep you awake at night, but it can be very difficult to provide full time care yourself - and this is where carers step in.

Are you thinking about hiring a live-in carer? If so, here are six reasons to hire a Filipino housekeeper carer, either for yourself or a loved one.

Carers will provide dedicated care

One of the main benefits of hiring a live-in carer is that they can provide full time care. The care recipient doesn’t have to leave their home and move into accommodation, but they will still have someone who can help them every day. This means that they can be independent without compromising their lifestyle.


Carers enable the retention of pets

Another advantage of carers is that they enable the client to keep their pets. If they are vulnerable and they live alone, they may have to give up their pets, especially if they are considering residential care. However, if you employ a live-in carer, the carer will be able to feed and walk the pet. This is very important to most people, especially if they have a strong bond with their pet!

Carers remove pressure from family relationships

If you are currently caring for a loved one, or being cared for, you may notice pressure on your relationship with them. This is totally normal, especially if the carer is a busy person with a lot of responsibilities, but it can be avoided by hiring a live-in carer. This alleviates any additional pressure and allows both to focus on what is really important in the relationship.

Carers provide independence

Another huge benefit of in-live carers is that they provide independence. They allow the client to continue their normal life, and they don’t provide direction or rules; they will simply help and assist. So you or your loved one will be able to keep living life on their own terms!

Carers give you peace of mind

If you hire a live-in carer from a reputable agency such as Guardian, you don’t need to worry about a problem occurring as there will always be a professional there to help. This makes it easier for everyone involved to sleep soundly at night - in every sense! It can also reduce the feeling of responsibly and stress for all parties.

Filipino housekeeper

Carers are affordable

Lots of people assume that live-in care is expensive, but in reality, this isn’t the case. In fact, live-in care is usually more affordable than residential care. Live-in care is flexible, whether you choose a Filipino carer or one of the many other nationalities we can provide so you should certainly be able to come up with a plan that suits your budget. Thanks to live-in care, you won’t need to compromise.
