Why do families prefer live in carers?

Live-in Care is when the carer will live with you in your home and provide care whenever you require. This is what makes it the most comprehensive care. Live-in care gives our clients the advantage of full-time care and companionship within their home 24 hours a day. Our live-in carers will work with our clients and their families, to support them in their daily routines. Private live-in care, as any care enables you to stay in your home for as long as possible. As live-in care is the most comprehensive care option, many of our clients build up to it and live in care tends to be the step before going to a care residence. That being said, our live-in carers are able to come with you to a retirement residence if you wish! This is one of the many reasons that families prefer to hire a live-in carer. The rest assured their loved one is being cared for in the place they feel most comfortable - their home. Live-in care also takes the pressure off families to be the sole source of care for their loved one.

You live in care will require their own bedroom within your home and while they are available to assist you 24 hours a day, it is recommended they have at least 2 hours to themselves within this period, perfect for you to take a nap!

If you have more complex care needs, such as Alzheimer’s, familiar surroundings will be of great benefit, so staying in your home for as long as possible is a necessity. Live-in carers are able to provide you or your loved one with specialised care as many private live-in carers have been specially trained and will have a deeper understanding of the issues involved and will support you or your loved one through the condition.
