What is Assisted Living?

Caring for a loved one is challenging, choosing what type of support and care they need is the most important aspect of selecting a carer. There are two main assisted living home care options to consider; Skilled Aid and Non-Medical Aid. Typically skilled aid carers are usually live in carers as they can offer you 24/7 care and Non medical aid can be Full Time or Part Time and either Live In or Live Out care.

Skilled Aid are carers with medical training, they are professionals that can provide rehabilitation therapy and pain management if needed by the client. They are fully trained to handle medical issues and emergency situations. Clients who tend to ask for skilled aid have more serious medical conditions that require more support, such as Dementia, including Alzihmers or a disability.

Non-Medical aid carers, provide support for the individual whether it is helping with household duties, ones wellbeing or both. Although they do not have medical training, all of our non-medical carers have a minimum of 3 years experience so they are prepared and know what to do in an emergency situation. Your assisted living carer would also be required to take a first aid and safeguarding course.

All our assisted living home carers are available to you, as and when your require. We understand that your care needs may increase, so you may start off with a Part-Time assisted living carer but end up needing a Full Time Live in skilled aid carer. Our carers to an extent can adapt to your needs and we are able to work alongside your needs and seamlessly, if needed to, introduce you to a skilled aid assisted living carer.

If you decide assisted home Live In care is the best sort of care that fits your needs and requirements, your Live in assisted carer would require their own bedroom within your home. Although they are there to assist you 24 hours a day, it is recommended that they have at least 2 hours to themselves a day, perfect for you to have a nap or downtime and read a book.
