How to Choose the Best Live-in Carer for Your Loved Ones
July 22, 2023

Live-in care enables your loved one to stay in their own home and be independent while reassuring you that they are safe and happy.

Live-in carers are fully trained professionals who live in your loved one’s home. Carers help with a range of tasks allowing your loved one to continue enjoying the things they love to do. They enable the people you care about to remain in their own home. The extra support is always tailored to each persons exact needs.

What is live-in care?

Live-in carers do whatever is required to ensure your loved one continues to enjoy a fulfilling life. Carers can meet a range of roles from medical assistance, personal care, providing meals, helping your loved one get out and about and providing companionship.

Our carers are fully trained to provide professional care, we have been rated as Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission. However, just as importantly, we treat your family as if they were our own.

So, if you are looking for outstanding carers in Oxfordshire, give us a call to talk through your needs. We’re always here to help, so call us today on 0800 505 3511

What benefits will a live-in carer provide for my loved one?

One of the main benefits of live-in care is that support is specifically tailored to your loved one’s needs. Because live-in carers provide one-to-one support, your loved one can continue with their usual routine and activities. They don’t have to fit into someone else’s schedule. Whether your loved one needs extensive medical and personal care or just help with getting out and enjoying life, our carers can provide the support they require.

In addition, your loved one can remain in their own home, surrounded by their own things. This means they don’t have to make drastic, unsettling changes to their lifestyle.

With a live-in carer, your loved one can continue to enjoy their home and garden. Friends and family can visit whenever they want and even continue to have a pet. They can also get out and about to enjoy their usual activities such as shopping or visiting the hairdresser. They can visit friends, enjoy their leisure activities and hobbies and get out and about whenever they choose.

A live-in carer allows your loved one to carry on with their routine but also ensures they are well looked after. This gives you extra peace of mind, knowing your loved one’s personal care is being attended to and they are eating well and staying active. This can improve their health and wellbeing.

Of course, our live-in carers also provide companionship and emotional support for your loved one, so they always have someone to talk to and enjoy meals and activities with. And if your loved one has any problems, whether they are physical or emotional, our carers are on hand to help and support them to find a solution or just provide a listening ear.

What can a live-in carer do for my loved one?

  • Helping your loved one with whatever level of personal care is required
  • Taking care of household tasks such as cleaning and laundry
  • Preparing well-balanced meals according to your loved one’s tastes
