There are a number of benefits to opting for live in carers for yourself or a loved one. The provision of ‘Live in care’ is delivered from the comfort of your own home, allowing you to remain surrounded by your family and friends whilst receiving high-quality person-centred care.

Your care package is tailored to your clinical and emotional needs to ensure you are supported in the most appropriate way respecting your preferences, cultural beliefs and ethnic values throughout.

Benefits of receiving care within your own home include:

Live-in care can be more financially viable that a care-home setting. Many care homes nationwide are offering weekly rates in excess of £1500 – Live-in care delivered directly from your own home starts from £900 per week so can be a cheaper alternative.

There are no institutionalised boundaries regarding visiting times, morning ‘rounds’, mealtimes, so you are free to carry out your daily tasks and meet loved ones as you wish. Following the Covid-19 pandemic, there may be reluctance for you or your loved one to reside in a care setting due to the increased risk of cross contamination when caring for multiple residents and the implications of such.

Receiving care within your own home is deemed preferable to a care-home setting as you have more control on who delivers your care. Care providers will always provide the opportunity for service users to meet their prospective care team prior to care commencing – This is beneficial as you can begin building professional relationships.

Care teams will support you to access the community and engage in social inclusion with the wider community – This has been found to reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation enhancing the service user’s emotional wellbeing.

They actively encourage positive risk taking and have provisions to ensure risk is managed effectively.

With 24/7 supervision, any emergencies/accidents can easily be prevented as you will have continuous monitoring. Care providers monitor both clinical interventions, changes in mood, withdrawal symptoms, fluid and nutritional intake, skin integrity checks, changes in behaviours etc.

Should they have any concerns about their service users, they follow organisational policies to ensure the relevant individuals are notified and appropriate action is taken immediately.

In conclusion, live-in care offers a comprehensive, compassionate and personalised solution which can help improve the quality of your life whilst keeping you in a familiar environment of the comfort of your own home and giving you continuity and guaranteed personalised care.
